Today, Kurt purchased our future new home. Actually he is moving in tomorrow. My children and I won't move in until June. Our stuff will move in the weekend before our wedding, and then we will move in after the wedding. It's such a perfect home for us. It's everything we could want and more. It's in the perfect location. It's got a great set up and plenty of room for all of us. The yard is very pretty too. It feels like it is our castle.

As it turns out, most of the volunteers were not familiar with sewing from patterns or doing anything like garments/costumes. While I had never done a costume before, I had made garments and followed patterns, so I got to do one of the three main character's costumes. Mine is the bad guy's costume (it's black). The shirt was a challenge because it is a silppery, shiney fabric. It slipped and slid all over the place, but I got it done. The robe part was much easier!
I had to say that I am very excited about sewing the drama presentation and being able to see my work on stage. It felt good to be able to help out my church in this way,

Wow - what an experience this was!! I've never been to a quilt show or anything like that before, so this was all new to me. I was first amazed at just how many women were there. They estimated about 20,000 women attended the event.

On Thursday, not only am I going to be at the quilt show, but I am also attending a lecture called, "Amish Women and Their Quilts." That sounds sooo interesting. I can't wait til that lecture. I am looking forward to visitng all the booths/vendors and seeing all kinds of new quilting products/patterns/techniques.

He had a very romantic evening planned out. He first took me to the Pagoda - a beautiful landmark in Reading. It rests on a mountain high above the city of Reading. It was quite windy and freezing, but we enjoyed our time of taking pictures and enjoying the beautiful views.
While waiting for the sun to set, Kurt suggested we go back to his car and wait. When we got back in the car, he handed me a beautifully-wrapped box.
My first gift was a hotel reservation for the night before the big Lancaster Quilt show. He wanted me to have a night away to be able to enjoy the quilt show. I am so excited. I will have complete peace and quiet for that night. Ahhhh...
