Getting ready for symposium

The countdown has begun, and I must admit I'm starting to feel excited about teaching my three classes at the National Quilt Symposium in Taupo. It's going to be full on, no time to lull about and dream! There are all sorts of things planned for the tutors and I can't wait to see the tutors exhibition and visit the merchants mall. 
Tonight my desk was looking like this after cutting 60 fabric strips. 

Thought I might make some emergency energy bags for each of my students. I think they may need some extra energy, we're going to be very busy!
Of course those of you who know me, know that I have to add a few embellishments.
There, that's a bit neater. All piles are now stacked ready for me to put together. 
Maybe if you're in one of my classes you'll get one of these wee bags to keep for yourself! (That is, of course, when it is empty!)

I will make a point of hunting you down at Taupo.
I have got almost all the requirements on the needs list for the 2 classes I am doing. Surprised at how much Stuff I needed. ( I got into classes with Gloria Loughman and Kim Mclean. )My car will be full.

Carole, it looks like a fun class and those ladies that get to take your class are really lucky girls! Have fun! Look forward to seeing what you are making with those pretty polka dots.

Wish I could be a wee mouse in the corner and take your class too! Alas, too far away.
