Here at home I have a hard time stealing hours to quilt because of our busy family schedule, but for this one week, quilting is the only job and the only expectation. When I'm free from the demands of kids and laundry and volunteer work, my brain explodes with creative ideas and energy.
But the work I get done is only a part of it. Meeting quilters from all over the country is great fun. New people who all share a common love. Conversations at dinner always start with quilting and what we've learned and sewing machines, but they soon move on to families and life and what we all share as women in the 21st century. Quilters are the greatest people.
Then there's the beautiful setting. Beach and forest and no televisions! My kind of place.
So wish me luck - I'm hoping to become better at what I love to do. I'm so grateful to have this opportunity.
