This "Challenge Czarina" has been officially dethroned! My tiara is gone, the ermine robe has been repossessed, and the scepter has been sent for re-plating and polishing. My job with the Quilt Guild has been passed into the capable hands of a friend of mine (though she may change my designation in that "realm" as well!).
Now when I go to guild meetings, I can sit and natter away with those around me, knit rows that will have to be taken out because I wasn't paying attention, and/or doze off without worrying about having to get up to announce something.
It had its moments, but I am glad to lay down the royal seal.
Basically that was it for the day. I got up so early to get to the meeting early enough to get a good parking spot, set up, and be ready to collect members' challenge quilts. I am lucky enough always to have the help of friends so it goes smoothly no matter what I forget.
Even so, the early hour coupled with the anxiety made me tired enough so I didn't do any packing when I got home. I did some reading and then enjoyed the late afternoon on our sunny patio .
Everyday should end like that!
