More than four years ago I taught a class at the Grand Quilt Guild. It happened to be at a time in my life that was really difficult, and the students that attended that class were so kind and loving, I still think about that day all these years later. And last night I went to the Grand Guild to give my lecture that I call "Answers to Crazy Questions".
It was wonderful to see these quilting friends and enjoy their friendship, and soak up their creative renewing energy once again. It was such great fun for me and the quilters were able to relate to my experience of being asked the standard crazy questions people ask you when they find out you are a quilter. Also, I was reminded by several people that I have been remiss in putting labels on all my quilts, and I promise I will fix that.
Here I am, surrounded by quilts and the energy of creative quilters (and lots of flags, because the meeting is at the legion!)
Remember this tip from Cheryl Richardson ...
"No is a complete sentence!"
It's all about honouring your own path and creative interests, and staying true to what fills you up.
Quilting friends... you fill me up!
