I would also like to welcome all of my new blog followers! WELCOME!
I have literally flown coast to coast multiple times this past week. As a flight attendant, I have a unique opportunity to be able to see, and visit some places that other people, quilters in particular, would LOVE to be able to see and visit. For that, I am very grateful. I continually have to remind myself, I love people, I love to travel, and I love customer service! At least I do when I have work weeks like this past one! I thought I would show you all a few of the happenings of my work week?
Getting ready to get my work week started.
A view from my office.
I need to fill you all in on a little airline lingo.
No, in the airline industry, this isn't a boring or stupid person.
Nor is it a sunken log.
And, it isn't the act of removing dead flowers off of a flowering plant.
It IS, however, a pilot or flight attendant that is being caught up with his or her route
without working the flight to get him or her caught up to their intended destination.
In other words........it's a BEAUTIFUL thing!
I read A LOT of quilting magazines. These magazines were gifted to me by a new friend, Jackie!
I receive so much inspiration by reading quilting magazines. It doesn't matter to me if they are current or not.
I doodle a lot!
This is an idea I have for a REALLY quick QOV.
Pattern testing will be taking place this week!
Then while in my hotel rooms.....
Miss Bev hummed along while I watched TV.
Then on one of my overnights, I found this brochure.....
Really????? And the hotel shuttle will take me??????
One of my crew members even went with me!
This photo doesn't even begin to show the enormity of this place!
I truly felt overwhelmed by over 11,000 bolts of quilting cotton, yet, all the while I was grinning ear to ear!
Fabric Depot was NOT a disappointment!
If ever you are in Portland, Oregon, GO!!!!!!!!!!!
They also have a large online store, just follow the link I provided.
Here are some of the goodies that came home with me.
14 yards total to be exact.
And, yes, I had to make room in my roller bag for these! LOL
All in all, a very good week!
I hope yours was or is going to be too!
And, here is a
plea request for you.....
Remember last week, I was asking for some input on a presentation I am getting ready to do? Would some of you help spread the word for me? This week is the first question I have for all of you, and I would LOVE to hear your responses? Please direct your friends to my blog so they may reply as well?
Who is most responsible for your involvement in quilting? A family member? A friend? Or did you jump into quilting on your own?
I can't wait to hear your responses!
Until next time........
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
