Road Trip!

Ballot gets turned in this afternoon...

Carlos will finish up the roof tomorrow morning (Great Relief! Excitement! Joy!)...

Packing finishes up tonight...

And tomorrow Husband and I head for Nashua, New Hampshire, and the Quilter's Gathering conference!

I've still got a few openings in classes, if you're in the neighborhood...would love to meet you.

Then we'll take a few days off -- spend a little time in the White Mountains (where I taught backpacking and rockclimbing for a few summers). We'll also go see Dave's brother and wife in Rhode Island.

Home for a few days...another gig, this time for the Columbine Quilt Guild in Denver...

Then to Michigan to see the folks. I got the phone call I'd been dreading last Friday -- my dad, who's been experiencing double vision and headaches for the past few weeks, woke up and couldn't open his left eyelid. A CAT scan confirmed the worst:

the bone cancer has spread to his brain.

Not long now. I am hoping very, very much he can hang in there until I can get to Michigan. A number of my classes and lectures have sold out in New Hampshire...I've got to go there first, and do my job.

I'll check in now and then, and let you know how we're doing.
