Whatta weird day. Slept late because I was just totally wound last night. couldn’t figure out this morning why the cats were stomping around all over me – ooops – no Ron to have already fed them! poor starving kitties.
Made a phone call, faxed a letter. Umpteen telemarketing calls and some more hang ups. That’s getting really old. The phone rings and I was ready to say something nasty to the next telemarketer.
Nope -it’s a nice fellow from Apple, in California! 20 minutes or so of phone interview ensues. Fun but nerve wracking. Guess it’s one of those things that it’s better not to fret about ahead of time. But! He says I’ll be hearing from the fellow who is doing the face to face interview. YEAH!
Then I talk with Pat for awhile. Then I chat with Mr Merrill for awhile. Go out and try to start the lawn mower. Nope. Grrrrrr.
Ron calls from the Tetons to say hi. They’re going climbing/hiking tomorrow. Sounds like it’s going ok out there but he didn’t expect to be on his own teaching CPR. Once he was over the shock of it, he was ok.
Even got a walk in today – so now it’s time for me to hit the hay!
I took a plunge late last night and signed up for photographica. It’s a collaborative photo blog. People post photos that they have taken and today there was a challenge to take a photo that someone provided and do something to it.
Since Tripod won’t let me FTP at the moment, here’s my challenge piece via my local ISP:
That was pretty cool – you could spend days or weeks working on a project like that, but it was freeing working with someone else’s image – no emotional attachment. Let’s see, what to make of it. I was actually the first one posted, probably a good thing – no pressure.
Spent most of wednesday working on NYQuilts! stuff for the meeting and it was pretty laid back. Tomorrow – lots of quilting and lots of work on the CD for the fund raiser stuff.
Yesterday’s photo expedition!
I wore my cool original issue Blogger tshirt today (made sure my hair was up so you could read the back too!). No one said “huh?” but I noticed people trying not to obviously read my chest, LOL.
Just part of the evil plan where people see something, see it again, hear something about it, and suddenly it’s EVERYWHERE and they’re thinking ‘I saw something about that before…… I think I saw a tshirt one day at UPS….’
Beware! The revolution will be bloggerized.
The past two days, I’ve been working on the web-based virtual quilt show tour for the fund-raising package. You can see the beginnings of this here
Phew! I’ve just finished the “sampler pages” from the 2000 show. Will do the 2001 show tomorrow. thasalotta pages and images.
Interesting having picked out the quilts without knowing for the most part who made them and then adding the maker’s name etc. Only duplicated two makers (everyone is allowed to put two quilts into the show) so that’s not bad at all. My goal in choosing these particular quilts was to show the range of what sorts of quilts are shown. Keeping in mind that the intended viewer of these pages is probably not a quilter and may need to overcome the stereotype of little old ladies making nine-patches in their church basement.
