Not This Year

I've waffled back and forth and back and forth and finally decided: I will not be attending Sewing Summit this year. I had an amazing time last year, but due to it being held in September instead of October, one good friend can't attend and another will have a newborn. Also, the class list so far isn't grabbing me and the sessions are being assigned by lottery which is less control than I'd like. Finally, I have no idea whether my baby-girl-to-be will be amenable to travel. So there you go. I'm sure when September rolls around I'll regret this decision, but it feels like the right choice for now.

Instead, I think I'm going to splurge for the single supplement and attend the Orillia quilt retreat in November. I also have my eye on the Modern Quilt Guild SewDowns and will consider other opportunities as they arise.

In other news, my sewing machine remains in the shop and I'm suffering withdrawal. I'm also suffering a distinct lack of motivation and energy so the timing is to my advantage I suppose. My third trimester is totally dragging. I'm trying to keep my eyes on the prize, I'm very much wishing it was June already!


  1. After the class lists started to go up, I started to feel less badly about missing it. Now I really don't...SMOOCH!

  2. You could say you were sewinging back and forth on this one, hee hee hee.

  3. Aaww, that's a shame. Would loved to have met you Lisa. I'm going!!!!!

  4. I hope your sewing machine gets fixed up quick. Don't be sad about missing Sewing Summit. I'm sure you will find something even more fun to do =D
