Shaking it off

Filed Under Quilt shows 

Well I got back from a week in Portland and lordy was I tired. It was a very difficult trip all the way around, and the most discouraging part of it was that the new Quilt! Knit! Stitch! show was very lightly attended. Everyone was disappointed, including the organizers.

When I got to my front door after a 10-hour drive that day, I told my hubby, “If I thought I could get back up, I’d get down there and kiss the floor.”

Okay, shake it off, and focus on the comforts of one’s own home and much more fun things in the future. On the first of September we’ve got a fabulous featured book and giveaway. See you then if not before!

    Sorry that the show wasn’t better attended. That makes for a long day. Get some rest and then jump back in. I enjoy your blog:)

    Sorry the show wasn’t well attended. My mom and I enjoyed it and thought it was more relaxing because it wasn’t too busy when we were there. I wrote about your kindness on my blog…thank you for your wisdom and samples of patient work about applique. And thanks for taking the time to set up a mini-shop in Portland!

    Elaine, thank you for your note. I think I’m just about caught up on my rest, and ready to go! So glad you enjoy the blog.

    Alicia, I remember our pleasant chat, and thank so much for the shout-out on your blog. I do enjoy talking about appliqué, and I hope our discussion proves to be a help to you.

    One of those live and learn moments, I guess. Hope you revive quickly :-) I’m sure the show was lovely, too bad so many missed it. Home is always a wonderful place to be, isn’t it? It’s certainly my fave :-)

    Hi Kay!! So sorry that the last show was a bust!! That can be so discouraging!!! But PIQF is coming: I’ll see you there!! :-) And I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth: I did get your last post, but I can see that I’ve missed many of your latest ones. It’s been happening with some of the other subscriptions that I have too, so I’m slowly figuring out who I’ve been missing! See you soon!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg
