We had beautiful, warm weather and two fantastic hostesses to chauffeur us around. Wendy McQuown and Elaine Stemetzki did an incredible job of getting us where we needed to be on time, and then entertained us with fun and delicious dinners. No wonder teaching can be so much fun!
During our lecture we were able to share quilts from our new books, Simple to Sensational Batiks and Time for a Chain II. People loved to know that they were getting a sneak preview from our new books, which will be in our warehouse during the first week of May. It did make me a little nervous to send those quilts through the baggage system of the airlines, as you just never know what can happen. However, all turned out well and there were no glitches!
It was nice to have part of the weekend to get caught up on home life and have an hour or two just to play. I have seen so many great projects in the last couple of weeks that I just had to have some “me” time to sew (and in a week or two I’ll share some of the exciting things I’m working on!) However, with a family, a grandson’s baseball game, and walking the dog, it’s tough to get a lot of time in my sewing studio. It’s always there, and I jump into the studio as often as I can!
