I am off to my very first quilting retreat and can I just say I am so excited. It's a little bittersweet because my first was supposed to be two weeks ago in Willamsburg, VA with my friend Natalie, but United canceled my flight and the ones they had rescheduled for me didn't work at all.
I'm about to load the car. I think I might be a little ambitious for 4 days of sewing. But better safe than sorry I say. I must admit that I'm a little nervous because I don't know anyone in my guild very well. I've been going to meeting for the last year so I have met people, but I haven't really gotten to know them very well because I haven't been able to attend a Saturday Sew. I'm jumping in the deep end in an effort to make more friends and bond with the people in my guild, but when I'm sewing next to the likes of Alissa (who taught me how to quilt) and Latifah it can be a little intimidating. Especially, since they all know each other well. Despite it all I am so freaking excited. Expect a full report next week!
