Getting Nervous about my solo show

I had to admit to a few people that I am starting to get nervous about my solo show approaching in October.



I've made a list of all the quilts I want to display - around 100.  One task done.
I've written to all the people that have quilts I want to borrow back for the show.  Second task done.
I've made most of the card stock labels that be pinned to the front of the quilts.  Third task almost done.
I've sent pictures to our publicity chairperson for the postcards and flyers.  Fourth task done.
I've done a preliminary layout of the show.  Fifth task almost done.

However, some unplanned tasks are starting to crop up:  Several people have asked me how to wash their quilts, how to get them to me, if I can do a few "small" repairs, and to let me know there isn't a hanging sleeve sewn on the back of the quilt.  Oh oh, that sounds like some work for me.  I don't mind a little bit of work.  I just know that it's summer and this is my traveling, gardening and biking season.  So, it feels like there is going to be a crunch time coming.  And that is making me a little nervous.

Wouldn't it make you a little nervous too to gather 100 of your quilts from around the USA and Canada?

Anyway, still over the moon that I was selected to be the featured artist for Clark County Quilters.  Mark it on your calendars:  October 19-21, 2018.  Opening reception is on October 19 from 5-7 pm.
H.H. Hall Building, Vancouver, WA.
