So this last week I went to San Diego for the San Diego Quilt Show. I had a wonderful time and met some amazing people. Clint and I made a trip of it, so it was fun being together just the two of us. I was amazed at the beauty of San Diego - I hadn't been downtown before this week and I absolutely love it there!
I had fun in my classes and met several wonderful people. It is funny that I still get a little nervous each time I teach, but I am getting better at it. I had someone tell me that the minute I don't get nervous is the minute I stop caring - I liked that thought because I do care and I really hope for great classes and a good experience for anyone taking my classes.
One thing I wasn't prepared for was that the local news station came into my class. You can watch the video here: Warning - the reporter says "blanket" several times. We all know it is a quilt! Seriously. Then, he wanted us to chant "we love quilting." It's all good fun, but you can see how I really feel about chanting when I give two thumbs up and a sarcastic smirk!
I was nervous at first on camera because he asked what machine this was and I knew it was a Handi Quilter longarm machine, but my brain stopped for a minute - you will see that and I think it was totally funny!
I had a lot of fun with the ladies and gentleman in my classes, thank you so much for coming!
I spent a few days in California, but will share more of my adventures in a different post.
Okay, to the giveaway winner from forever ago - so sorry about the delay. Congratulations to Mimi from ModMimiQuilts for winning the QCR and Kit from the sisters at Sew Kind of Wonderful! Email me at judi(at)greenfairyquilts(dot)com and I will forward your info to Jenny! Thanks so much!
