Getting ready for IQF

Quilting-related task for today: find camera batteries, lots of them, and/or the recharger and lots of rechargeables. The quilt show requires many, many batteries. I can't remember how many I went through last year - I know it was at least 8. And rechargeables go even faster than regular ones. I prefer to use them because it feels less wasteful, but it'd be nice if they could make them last a bit longer.

I dragged way too much crap up to Houston last year but I have vowed to do better this year. And I'm going to try not to buy too much stuff, either. I have a new computer, have I mentioned that here? It wasn't a horribly expensive one but it was still an unplanned expense so we are trying to watch the spending extra closely. I have enough quilting stuff for any three people, anyway, god knows.

Posting everyday sounds like a great idea. I think I'll take up the challenge unofficially, and try to do that as well.
I hope you have a wonderful time in Houston. I'm sure you'll let me come along photographically at least. I look forward to seeing your report.
Congrats on the new computer - I've been wanting a laptop too. Someday - someday soon I'll have one. I don't do as much travelling so I'm not sure whether I shouldn't get a desktop instead.
