Finally, I laughed when we submitted our taxes this year. I guess it’s official: according to the IRS I am a professional Quilter. I wonder what the accountant thought on that one – probably doesn’t see many of those. Got to do something to keep those accountants entertained during tax season. What it should really say is “vacuumer-washer-chauffer-soccerfan-chef”, but I guess there wasn’t room.
I’m starting (another) new project, this time all solids. I think this is my first all solids quilt and I’m excited. I’m using Konas: Aqua, Peacock, Snow and Corn Yellow. I promise to share an actual finished project later this week. (Finishing the binding tonight.)
Today I am going to a blogging conference called SNAP here in Utah. I’m excited because I’ve watched how much work has gone into it and I’m sure it will be very cool, but at the same time, I’m feeling nervous. I always feel kind of like a dweeb at things like this – sometimes feels like the first day of Jr. High all over again. And the fact that I’m the one wearing braces adds to that lovely dorky-jr-high feeling. :[
But I know it’s good to get out of my comfort zone, and each time I’ve done something like this, I’ve met some really lovely people and been glad that I made myself go, even though I’d much rather stay home with my sewing machine and watch reruns of MASH and Downton Abbey. Plus, I’m SO technically un-savvy, that it’s always good to learn something new in the realm of html or seo.
