Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
Spent some time at the BNHV yesterday getting folders stuffed for our seminar attendees. I spoke on the phone with Bonnie Hunter while I was there. We thought we had a book order missing, but it was found after we heard from Bonnie who had signed for it. It had gotten tucked away into an unused office for safe keeping.
Bonnie’s in Alaska right now, doing her schtick for the guild in Ketchikan. As she always does, pictures are posted on her daily blog. (Make sure you do your hair and put on lipstick if you’re coming to our seminar. You may get a moment of fame on her blog if you’re in a class of hers) Yesterday Bonnie explored the town and spent time in a brand new library. Check out the cool art work in the library and be sure to go all the way to the end to see the tree in the children’s section. I wonder if we could do something like that as a community service to some institution. Looks like it would be very fun for the makers and the kids as well. Click here.
Bonnie will be flying directly from Ketchikan to us on a red-eye next Tuesday. She’s arriving here early in the day so she can sleep and try to get her internal clock back to our time zone before her class and lecture on Wednesday. Natalie has lent us one of her Featherweights so Bonnie can sew in her hotel room while she’s here. Apparently she has a deadline for a new book project coming up!
Heading out shopping so TTFN!
Looking forward to seminar. Wish I could be there everyday! Instead I have to be satisfied with Wednesday and Friday. See you then. Joyce
