It's getting serious around here! Trying to get everything set up for my dad for while I am gone...all his bills are now on bill pay but have to run over there tomorrow to finish up some last minute stuff and also, I am hitting the hearing aid people to get checked for what kind of hearing aids I need...my back is beginning to hurt from having to lean over so much to hear what people say across the table and I am tired of going "what did you say?". Wish they could be ready before I leave but think I will have to wait until I return home...we'll see what the hearing aid people say.
Bought a new suitcase to go with my 24" one...this one is a 29" one and looks huge! I have the smaller one filled up with already dyed fabric and it weighs in at 43 pounds...got to keep it under 50! So, clothes and other assorted stuff that isn't too heavy will go in the big one. Wonder what they will say when they find my heat gun and all the other assorted things that will be in it!
Getting nervous trying to get everything finished. Still have to get my entry together for Sacred Threads...missed it last year and also my application for public art for the new library going up in our town...15 copies of everything! Fortunately, my little assistant was home for the holidays and pulled slides for me, marked them all, did the slide list, and this is for two different projects. Now I have to finish the artist statements to go with them, check the resume for corrections and updates, get copies of my articles included and then run off 15 collated, hole punched copies. And then get it sent off to the country...tomorrow! And mail off a box of thread and who knows what else I may find!
Oh yeah, and Jacob is coming over tomorrow night so his parents can go skiing on Saturday. Fortunately Doug will help out as Saturday I have to pack my clothes for Texas, pack my bag for overnight in Santa Cruz and pack class supplies and quilts to take with me.
Everyone is keeping a safe distance from me... for their own health!
