I think I have all of my bags packed ....

Os this week I get to go to Baltimore and experience that city. It will be fun as I have only driven through Maryland and now that I am teaching there, I can cross it off my State list which keeps going down. I don't think I will get Rhode Island crossed off but I am in hopes of a couple more States contacting me before I retire. I am delighted to say that thanks to Becki who works for Quiltropolis, I will have a new website on soon and eventually will sell quilts and other fun things there. I have a more accurate schedule list and also Workshop list of what all I teach, charge etc.
Thigs are coming together and next July I will have a new book out with my co-author and friend Mel MacFarland. The trees here are so beautiful with their falling leaves and my husband dumped two bales of straw over my roses and other plants. We are gtting everything tucked in for winter. I am pulling up new recipes and am ready to do a new letter for my newsletter. I am behind. I always like to give out two or three recipes, a good blog site to look up (or two), what is new and when my new fabric, books etc., will be coming out. I have some information about my retreat I give in Idaho and also one in France and one in Northern Wisconsin on Madelyn Island. All story/journal workshops that will be fun because they are longer and in great places.
I hope you are one of the nice people who I get to meet.
Have a wonderful week and please share your comments and happy things here....remember we are the blog where joyology reigns and we invited other joyologists to join in. After all it is cheap medicine to laugh often and much. :0)

Hope you're having a fine time in Baltimore! I will go look up Madelyn Island so I can start making plans...that is my gift to myself next year!

p.s. I can't tell if my comment went through so this might be a repeat--but anyway, thanks again for pulling my name in the lottery! I'm so excited!
