Well, there’s soo many things to say and stories from the past week I don’t know what to say and I’m sure I’ll forget something.
I throughly enjoyed spending last weekend with Anjea and having her come to San Antonio and bring me lots of honey jars and a big ole bottle of Volka from Austin…..ya know how hard it is to pack in your luggage all that glass and pray it didn’t go over 50 lbs?? LOL It was at 42lbs….whew!! Needless to say, it was worth it! Thank you again Anjea! LOVE the new favors 🙂
Then the big kick off of the convention was Sunday night with the revealing of the new machine. It was pretty cool and I meet the youngest participate at the convention, Leah who is 12 and very bright and talented. Somehow amoungst 1600 people we continually ran into each other over the next 3 days! I started to tease her of being my stalker! 🙂 She is from California and won a prize in the Sew Gallery Show. Again, great gal and she is lucky to have a great mom to show her along.
I learned how to use the new Designer Diamond and the Q-Bot piece that goes on a Mega-Quilter to automatically quilt for you (IT’S TOO COOL). Not to mention learning 2 new softwares, that I really enjoy!
There was a big closing dinner on Wednesday with free alcohol and dancing (but if you wanted a soda it was $3.50 for 10 oz bottle…yah, crazy!).
I’m still coming down from the input overload and meeting so many new faces/people. I went into work today to show off the new machine—-that arrived on Thursday—-and looks like folks are ready to purchase it….we have 4 in the shop, but I think we will need more by next week. 🙂
I spent the day sewing….well, cutting I think mostly. I’m kinda in a fog really not focusing on any one project–not good–just need to rest I guess.
Here’s my pictures from my week away. I think it’s bed time.
