I missed Tatting Tuesday for my Quilt Guild
I hate it when I have to choose between things I love to do...tonight I had to miss tatting in order to go to my Quilt Guild meeting. Sometimes I do both but I didn't feel like hurrying tonight. Tatting is in Richardson and my guild meeting is in Mesquite. They are about 20 miles apart. I could have gone to tatting for awhile then to my quilt meeting but I feel so rushed when I do this and don't get quality time at either function. I have not been going to the Quilt meetings but I was shamed into going again. I went to TAQG Rally day (that's Texas Association of Quilt Guilds for all you out of staters) and saw all my buddies from quilting there. I had so many friends walk up to me and tell me they missed me and wanted me to come back that I just had to go...I went and took the quilt to my friend that I finished and she loved it...it had been sitting at her house for 10 years, so she was pleased to get it back to bind and give to her son....Once at the guild meeting, I had a great time and we did 4 mini lessons on different ways to do applique. I've done all of them but I did learn a few tricks I didn't know too. I will do some quick applique and share the little tricks I learned with ya'll maybe this weekend. I sure missed my friends and I'm really glad I went tonight. I'm going to have to figure out how to juggle my time better...Hmmm, I wonder if I can take off a little early from work on Tuesday and then later go to quilting....something to think about. gotta go for now, til next time...
