Good morning from Nephi, Utah

Good morning.  Just finishing up breakfast.  Here are some of the pictures I wanted to post last night but couldn't.  These guys are our traveling companions, Snowdrift and Toby.  Eyore is our backseat driver and he's had no complaints so far. TK has been a great riding shotgun.
Well breakfast is finished and we need to go get the car packed.

In for the night.

We've made it to Nephi, Utah.  The driving was pretty good.  We did run into one thunder storm with a little hail, but nothing too bad.  We made pretty good time, but we did have help with the posted speed limit being 80 mph in parts of Utah.  This is going to be short tonight because, there isn't the greatest WiFi here at the motel.

My Big New Adventure

I know I haven't written anything in a while but I'm hoping that while change with the new things that are happening.  The day has finally arrived!!!  I'm headed to Montana to Judy Neimeyer's Certified Instructors retreat.  I've worked hard getting to this point and I'm so excited.  I was accepted into the program in November last year and have been doing some teaching at Ginger's Quilt Shoppe  in Upland, CA.  My students have been great.  

I've decided to drive to Montana and am taking a girlfriend, TK, along for the ride, she has family in Missoula that she's going to visit while I'm at the retreat, then I will pick her up on the way back.  I'm hoping to have time to tell you all about what I'm doing during the week at the retreat.  We will be working on the new "Technique of the Month" quilt called Mariners Compass.  All the one's that have been done in the 3 other retreats for shops and instructors have been beautiful.  If you want to see what they look like you can check them out at the Quiltworx Facebook page.

Well I still have a few things to do before I hit the road. So have to get this posted.  

Always Stitchin',


P.S. Sorry there are no pics this time.  There will be later.
