Taking care of business just in case the power goes out
February 11, 2009
All the group emails have been sent out for the ATC swap. If you haven't heard from us and you did indeed sign up before the cut-off last Friday at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time, email us at [email protected] Just a reminder that cards need to be in the mail by February 28th.
Next week is yellow week. Look around you, see all the bright cheery spots in your life and take photos of them. If you plan on playing along, email me at hillroad at bellsouth dot net and I will add you to the list of participants. I am hoping that some advance notice will give you film shooters enough time to do your magic, too.
The auction quilts are finished. I don't have photos yet, but will post some as soon as I can.
We have a wind storm coming through town today. I swear I will scream and then cry and sob if we lose power again. I am still working on other auction projects and the big event is this weekend. Please, spare us. If I disappear for more than a few days, you'll know why.
I think that is it. Gratuitous beer photo below. I just can't post without something to look at. Happy Wednesday.
Hey, I need one of those! Yellow sounds good, I may try to play along. That is one happy color to focus on during February in Seattle.

You already know I'm in.
Um, I'm really knocking on wood over here that it's not going to be my turn without power.

I will join in yellow week for a couple of days, though probably not every day of the week. (I mean, unless something else happens, lol.)
I am crossing everything for you that you don't lose power again. xoxox

hope you make it through the storm ok. ours hit last night. tornado sirens were disconcerting, but it all passed pretty quickly. good luck and have fun at auction.

I sent you an ATC email -- only Olivia got her group assignment, Carter did not.
I am looking forward to yellow week -- a little warmth and sunshine will be nice.

Just wanted to say thanks for all your hard work in setting up the ATC swap. We're really excited here :-)
I'd love to join in the yellow week - although I can't think of anything yellow here!
I hope your power survives the weekend. Good luck.
