It's has been a very busy week for me so far. I had the pleasure of speaking to the Sierra Quilt Guild in Sonora Monday evening.
There was a full house at the Senior Citizens Center. They laughed heartily and applauded in all of the right places. They are a great group of talented quilters.
The quilts were all placed on a table in order of their appearance. I tell my story through the quilts.....they are eloquent speakers, and they say so much about me.
My buddies, Kaaren, Donna, and my sister Gail held up the quilts on cue throughout the talk. They were so funny.....an added sideshow to the evening. All they needed were some tap shoes, top hats, and canes, and they can take their show on the road!
Yesterday I had another full house for the Patchwork Math Workshop in the Creekside building at the Fairgrounds. It was a wonderful classroom. The girls had lots of space and I had plenty of room for my presentation of the material.
It is so helpful to have Gail circulating throughout the room helping everyone. I couldn't do this without her help. We are now known as "The Sister Act".
The girls worked hard all morning making their components. They were delightful! It was so nice getting to know all of you and see your creativity. Right before lunch, components started appearing on the portable design wall.
I truly love getting out of my sewing room to spend time with quilters. Your creativity, kindness, and thirst for learning, feeds my soul. It's YOU that keeps my creative spirit going strong. Thank you Sierra Quilt Guild for the wonderful opportunity. Both Gail and I had a fabulous time.
