I met Paula Reid!
I totally forgot that I hadn't written since we had our state convention! Did we do everything right? No. Did it go well? Yes. There are always lessons to be learned and a case of the "would of, should of, could of's" when we undertake something major, but all in all, I am satisfied with the results. People seemed to have a good time, and it was well attended. The discouraging thing is that there are always those that criticize and complain no matter how well things go, or how well-intentioned you are. Oh well. Anyway, the really cool thing was that I got to take a class with Paula Reid, Alex Anderson's personal quilter, and she was so awesome! We had lunch, I drove her to Starbucks, took her to the shop where she took lots of picture and even bought a couple of kits, and just really enjoyed getting to know her. She is a fun, ball of fire! This next summer, she is going to come to the shop to teach for a couple of days, and I can't wait. One thing is for sure...a fun time will be had by all. Paula will make sure of that!
