Your story mad me chuckle this evening. At least you had a result with the 25% off offer.
I'm sure your not alone, we all get our days, dates mixed up. Even me. :lol:
I have only been quilting for about 7 months, I joined a local group who meet once a month in town. Last November at the meeting they decided to have a little pre Christmas celebration for our meeting in December. Non alcholic drinks, nibbles etc.
As usual I turned up at the December meeting, like you laden down with bags of all the necessary nibbles & drink. I walked towards the table where everything had been laid out, started taking my items out of the bag. Our organiser tapped me on the shoulder & said "Tisha what are you doing". I replied just adding my contribution to the table. Oh no she replied, you don't have to contribute, some of the monies made from our subscriptions etc have been used for this evening.
Well I wanted the earth to open up & swallow me, I was so embarassed! :oops:
The ladies still pull my leg about it even now!
Well I hope you enjoy your class next week, what exactly are you making. I have recently tried pp for the first time & I love it.
I shall think of you next week.

I know what you mean there were about 10 ladies in the store but each one was so gracious about the whole thing I just cracked up and told them I was so excited about the class I was early on purpose and was spending the week in the store...haha...not sure exactly what we are making but two of the sweetest ladies came to me while I was trying to rid my red face and took me around the shop and proceded to show me everything I would ever need to quilt....one of them told me about a gal online named Carol Doak and that shes got a fabulous paper piecing DVD that explains everything so easy so I checked her out and sure enough it looks like something worth the $20. investment she said she watches it often to help her with a piece that shes having difficulty with she also told me once she started paper piecing that she loves it so much thats all she does and her friend agreed.....

That reminds me of me. I was going to a party, made some food to bring. When I got there, the hosts answered the door in their jammies. OOPS wrong day.
It was the day before. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yes I've been informed Carol Doak is the pp Queen, have to say I haven't seen any of her publicatons etc. The piece we did was a Kaleidescope cushion cover/ placemat. I can email it to you if you like, pm me your email address if you want it.

Isn't it great to be blonde and have an excuse for when we make mistakes?

My worst "blonde" moment was when I couldn't get my stereo to work and asked my brother to look at it. After fiddling with it for a while, he figured out the problem. He took hold of the cord and with great patience said; "Celeste, you have to plug the thing in."

My younger sister has a good one too. One year while I was away at BYU -Hc she sent me a package for my birthday. I was more than a little surprised at the wrapping, but the card explained: Sorry about the wrapping, I was in a hurry and thought it looked pretty. It wasn't until too late that I realized it said "A wedding unites two lives, two loves."!
