Confessions-Non Techie Gotta Have...now Delivered

I'm right now sitting in Santa Cruz after having an incredible weekend of fun with the members of the Pajaro Valley Quilters. We laughed together throughout the day on Sunday, and the group's quilts really showed that they were enjoying learning about Fast-Piece Applique. Monday was a wild day of chatting, shopping and just plain having fun -- then it was topped off with a wonderful meeting where I shared information on color- and how much I love using it, and how that may not have been the case when I started.

And, while I promise to share photos of some of the fun happenings the one thing throughout the weekend has been me tracking my new little iPad2 -- I have been excitedly watching it's progress as it makes its way to me from the other side of the world.

It is here that I must confess... I can hardly wait! I, who never really stood in line for anything...stood in line for this little piece of technology -- and when that did not pan out, I ordered it on-line/ dreading a bit JUST HOW long it was going to take to get to me... now, finally it may be at my door.

I'll let you know.

But, I'd love to know what (if anything) you have sooooooooooooo wanted that you stood in line for?

Pictures and fun shares from my time in No.California will follow soon, I promise & maybe one of my new little techo buddy. Til' later --- Have a great Tuesday!

Update-Update----DE--livered!

I'm not sure that I can remember standing in line to purchase something before (although I'm sure I must have), but I remember standing in line to see the van Gogh exhibit at LACMA. I'm always ready to stand in line for some art!

ahhh, I have forgotten all about the art... thanks for reminding me, Val!

I stood in line for an iPhone. The second generation. Enjoy your iPad. I love mine but I so wish I'd waited for the 2.

my hubby got "me" an ipad--HA! while i do have fun with it--i'm such not a techie and he is, so it's our "toy" to share. thankfully, he is able to download things i want to play on it. love reading a book on it which is something i'd not ever thought i'd like. as for standing in line...not a possibility now for me, but long ago did for a credence clearwater concert--then ended up with the worst headache from the noise and all the "smoke" wafting through the venue :)
