Well, in those famous words...I am packing my bag and will be ready to go!
Not tonight, but very soon! Quite frankly I feel a bit nervous about it all as well.
I have to wonder...how old am I?
As you are well aware, relocating from our home of 21 years to a city we left as idealistic newly-weds 26 years earlier has been quite a journey...in so many ways. Leaving a FABULOUS group of sewing friends (who I still miss so very much) and trying to find a sense of belonging...it takes time.
Relevance you say?
Well, I have been asked away with a group of ladies for this weekend...woohoo!
I have known Janette for a year, and met Cristie recently...and they have very kindly asked me to fill the gap created when one of the "regulars" was unable to attend. How thoughtful of them to help create an opportunity for me to meet some stitchers. I have been lucky to meet some lovely ladies who share my stitching interest since the move, both at Quilt-essentials and also at Pot Pourri Cottage, I recently went to the Novocastrian Quilters...which I will probably join. Funny how having stitching friends is essential to "settling in". So, I am ready-ing my bag for the weekend...
the circle game is on my hit list.
And my slowly growing cross stitch might head along for after dinner.
Wish me luck...I am looking forward to a great weekend!
