I saw this sign by Rosanna Geissler about a year ago and loved it.
Thanks to the magic of Pinterest, I found it again. Seems appropriate for this week.
And next . . . wow. Thank you so much for all of your nice comments on my blogiversary. You have made me dangerously close to getting a big, fat head. It is gratifying to know that this silly little blog is appreciated and even enjoyed. Thank you, thank you!
And now I am off to finish up preparations for The Sewing Summit which starts tomorrow. (!) Wow. Feeling excited and nervous all at the same time. It’s been a crazy busy week around here and I haven’t even started to pack. I’ve been working on my class presentation and I’m feeling muy anxious. I’m a little scared because, thanks to 4 pregnancies and the results thereof, my memory is shot and so I’m terrible at remembering names, details, anything really. Also I got a haircut last week that was not what I was expecting and I feel like that guy with the mushroom on his head from Mario Brothers. Combine that with a fact I have not yet shared on this blog: I got braces 3 months ago, and I’m feeling like I’m back in those awkward junior high years all over again. (Any other adult braces people out there? Please tell me I’ll survive.)
But I’m so excited to be with so many fun women who share the same interests as I do. I know that there are so many who would love to come and can’t because of distance, cost, etc. I got lucky that it happens to be only 40 min away from my house. If you can’t make it this year, I totally suggest looking for a local guild or group at a local quilt shop. Women who sew are so much fun – even when they’re complete strangers. (This is what I keep telling myself this week!) It is so worth having an occasional sewing-fest wherever you are. And then one day, we’ll all sit and sew together at that great Sewing Summit in the sky.
