What a day! Cleaners delayed my planned departure to go and meet with my art quilters group. But I was able to use that time to organize my thoughts as to what I would realistically be able to work on once I arrived at my destination. In addition, I had the time to pack only what was needed instead of throwing a bunch of stuff in a bag in the hopes that I would have everything essential but wind up missing at least half.
Of course, I did have more materials than I had time to use. Nothing new there, though. Much to my surprise, it took me the entire time to "un-sew" (the modern politically correct way to say "rip out") 24 short seam. Whew, that sounds like a lot - and believe me, it felt like a lot!
Being a novices at being in a selfie and in taking one, both Carol and I looked up at the "camera" I was holding while Kath, correctly, looked at the imaginary viewers. The photo Kath's husband took turned out to be a video (not his fault, he used my cell phone unfamiliar to him). I'll do better next time; sorry, Kath! Notice Kath's wonderful traditional quilt behind us - she has a perfect wall for displaying her beauties!
This is the art quilters' group - small but very, very close. I can't tell you how much I get from these women: ideas, support, encouragement, necessary nudges, and laughter - oh, the laughter!
