Happy Dizzy-ness!

Once more I find it astounding that time is flying by.
I am starting to sound like my mother, but can really see what she was talking about.
Life is full of lots of happenings...the face of our family is changing in so many lovely ways...children stepping into new phases of their lives, and we are adjusting to our changing roles too. 
Change is good...it makes us grow.
My head has been dizzy in so many ways!
 Last week I had the extremely good fortune to spend a weekend with the most DELIGHTFUL group of ladies...too many names to share here, but some new friendships were made, 
as well as some friends were met in person for the first time and those long distance friendships were well and truly validated.
 It was a diverse but happy group...
 such a clever and inspiring crowd...
it just made you want to create...
and create some more.
Why oh why does work have to intrude on my creative time?
Maybe my clients could form a sewing circle??? 
That could be interesting!
Under the gentle tutelage of the ever so kind MSG, I set to work on a new vision...
it will be a longer term project....but do I need to hurry? See, even I am growing and changing with what I am wanting to create!
For some fabulous photos of the weekend and our fabulous venue, Cottage Quiltworks, head over to the super fun Meredithe's blog...
she was a much better blogger than me and recorded all the action!
Thanks ladies...
let's do it all again!

I'm in need of a weekend spent with inspiring friends. :o) I think a client sewing circle could work -- you could put it to a vote!

Your weekend sounds like just the ticket to boost creativity and inspiration. Plus you got to meet and make new friends.

Im heading off to AQC this weekend - hopefully I'll find my mojo there !

Everyone needs a long term project in their lives; they are the ones that become family heirlooms, the keepers of memories! I look forward to seeing your progress! And it looks like you had a great time!

A change of scenery and surrounded by crafty friends, sounds like a perfect weekend.

Debbie said...

What is wrong with a long term project or 10??? It is only a sign that you are turning into a truly addicted quilter like the rest of us...either that or you don't have a life like some of us!!! Looks like a fabulous weekend - wish I was there too...

It looks like you had a fabulous weekend. Time with quilting friends (old and new) gives me some of my most enjoyable and productive days.
Long term projects are some of my favorites, as long as I keep working on the, but I'm a UFO creator way too often. Looking forward to seeing what yours might be.
