What a week this has been. Several months ago, I received an email from the president of the Central Coast Quilters, Linda Kucera. She invited me to present a trunk show at their monthly guild meeting and teach a class the next day. First let me say that public speaking has always made me really nervous. But Linda was persuasive and Mark was encouraging, and I said yes.
I am SO glad I did. I put together a trunk show that included a power point presentation first showing a picture of my quilt inspiration, and then Mark held up the actual quilt (he was enormously helpful and supportive). I practiced the presentation a couple of times on my family, took their suggestions to heart and made a few changes.
So when the time came for the trunk show, I was actually relaxed and had a great time. I want to say that the women in that guild was so friendly and of course that helped calm my nerves.
You know how you meet someone and from the first time you form a friendship bond? That was how I felt about meeting Linda. Isn't she adorable in her pincushion outfit?
I hope I get to sew with these women again. It was the best day!
If any other guilds are interested, I'd love to do it again.
You remember a couple of weeks ago when Mark was on TV when reffing a football game? Well, now he can add the newspaper coverage. His name isn't listed, but we all knew it was him right away:
I now have all my UPS deliveries routed to a UPS store nearby. When I walked in last week to pick up a package, the guy at the counter was on the phone and I heard his part of the conversation: "I'm sorry ma'am. We are definitely open. It was only decoration." Which was confusing to me until I looked at their window on the way out:

Have a safe and happy Halloween.
