A Thoughtful Day
I'm really angry with myself tonight. Not over anything I've done, but the fact that I allowed the actions of someone else to hurt my feelings. How childish is that! This will be a weekend of putting things into perspective.
This quilt was made for me at the Alex Anderson Retreat 2004 and signed by all the retreaters. I had to cancel my plans at the last minute because my shoulder surgery date was moved. Marlene spearheaded the project, Holly made the label, and Deb and I think even Alex worked on the binding. It was quilted at the retreat by the APQS rep who was there demonstrating long-arms. What joy to get this in the mail a week or so after retreat! And what wonderful friends I have made through the years at the retreat! I can't wait until this November to see them all again!
I have been invited to a sew-in tomorrow. It'll be good to be with other quilters. I think I'm going to work on my orange/yellow/pink string quilt. I've never made one before but have admired them for a long time. It should be a fun day.
