I finished my pillow for PTS4 and will be mailing it to it's new home tomorrow! I'm pretty sure my partner will love it, but my fingers are still crossed for luck.
On a totally unrelated note, I'm going to vent a little about my quilting guild. Let me start by saying this is NOT a modern guild and I knew this going in, but I thought there could still be some things to learn, ideas to share, and maybe a few other secret modern quilters. WRONG! I was planning on leaving the guild at the end of the year simply because I don't fit in. I have no one to relate to or bounce ideas off of. Most of these women are 50-80 years old. So while they have a wealth of knowledge, our aesthetic is completely different. Anywho. I was coerced into taking the position of VP and to be in charge of workshops. I thought this would be an opportunity to make the guild work for me. WRONG! Over the past month, I have been told, not asked, that 8 of the 12 months are booked. Why the hell did you need me then?!?!? Most of these are for charity projects. While I do love that the guild is involved in a lot of charities, why are they using workshop time? I feel like a petulant child, stomping her foot and whining, "But that's MY time!" Beyond that, the two real workshops that have been scheduled without much discussion with me are SO not anything I would ever want to do. This isn't to say I have to like all the workshop projects, but I've been in the guild a year and there hasn't been one I like! Further, we have a retreat in March and, again, there is not one project I want to do so I'm not attending. I have committed myself to this position and I won't quit because I gave my word, but I'm most displeased to say the least. Ok, rant over. Sorry if you were bored senseless!
