Iowa and Illinois are the next teaching spots I’ll be headed for…going west just like the pioneers in their covered wagons, quilting with scraps at the end of a long, hard day on the trail…
Whoa!!! Wake up, Kathy! My travel will be on high speed freeways, in a nice heated/cooled car and my quilting will be in a well-lit room with plenty of electricity for sewing machines and irons! There will be no campfires…just a hotel, WITH a pool and hot tub! Granted, my car is loaded as full as any Conestoga wagon, but I blame that on bringing my hubby’s golf clubs along, too. It’s not ALL quilting stuff, really it’s not.
I do love everything about teaching quilt stuff, but I still get very nervous every time. I have to tell myself that I really do know what I’m talking about and that lady sleeping in the fourth row at the lecture is not actually bored, she just had a really hard day!
Hope I remember to get some pictures for you. Very often I get so caught up in the sound of my own voice teaching that I forget to capture the wonderful creations coming from the minds of my students. Looking forward to seeing what they create!
