2 Conferences, not enough money, honey…March 7, 2006
I need to raise some money for this, Conference of Northern California Handweavers. I am not a weaver, but there is an alpaca spinning class and a yarn dyeing class I want to take. It is a little over $200 since I am not a member. Also, I need to sign up by the 15 of this month. Anyone want to sponser me? (ha ha, ya right!) I politely mentioned this to my mom and husband who both said, “cool, do it,” until I told them how much. I couldn’t really hint to my mom that it would make a nice birthday present (unless she reads this, ha ha…) I am still driving around with her birthday card (bad daughter) and haven’t finished her socks. Luckily, it is cold year round there, so sock in the summer is no big deal.
The first one is my main goal. It is local and I really need to meet other spinners in my area and learn from other people. Plus, I am dyeing to take the dyeing class. It is the weekend after my birthday. Should I set up a send me to the weaving convention paypal button, donate $ to my birthday present, LOL?! Also, it is a weekend that is between the Spring Semester and Summer Semester (yes, I am going summer, too) so I won’t be preoccupied with school thought.
The second one would be fun but it is right before Finals and I doubt I will go anywhere that weekend.
I think I did okay on the lab test. I do have a little story about it. I will try to post it tonight after the kids are in bed. Let’s just say it sort of has to do with my last post about Gram Staining.
