I went to the San Diego Quilt Show on Thursday and had a great time. Yes, it's not a huge show, but my feet were sore by the time I'd seen everyone and everything. I hope that if you went you had a chance to see Micky Lawler's demo. Well worth the price of admission! If you haven't been yet, Saturday is the last day so don't miss out.
It was fun seeing students, quilts by many people I know, a few quilts from my class and a number of jackets! And of course the vendors are always worth visiting :-)
On another note, my daughter was supposed to leave for college this morning, but she didn't get into housing. She has moved from 372 on the waiting list to 5, but no luck so far. The poor thing will be commuting for the first week and we hope there are at least 5 no shows or we will be spending next weekend apartment hunting. The poor thing didn't need this stress on top of all her worries about going away to college and her placement audition, etc. I feel like a terrible mom, but who knew you should apply for housing at the same time you apply to the college? So what if I'd have lost $50 if she didn't decide to go to that school, it would have been worth it to avoid this hassle. Oh well, live and learn. The plus side is that I won't be alone quite yet!

Yay Jeralyn! It always makes me feel so good when students bring everthing they've finished over the course of the class. I know we've seen them before, but this way more people can see them including the students in my other classes.
On a side note Elisia leaves for college this Saturday, we hope. She still hasn't gotten housing, but she's 7th on the waiting list, down from her original 372nd place! We both have our fingers crossed that something will come up before school starts so she can move in on Saturday along with everyone else. Classes start next Tuesday and it will be along commute if she dosn't get housing although they assured me that rooms often open up after school starts. Keep good thoughts for her and for me; I'm going to miss her!
