Sew South Retreat starts tomorrow and I have a lot of work to do to get ready! Yesterday I spent hours layering fabric to make two silk scarves, one for me, one for my secret sister:
Then I pulled fat quarters for the fat quarter swap and simple spiral blocks for my stuff swap:
So today I still need to pull and cut fabrics for the various classes on paper piecing, bag making, and yoga pants. I turns out it's a lot of work to be ready for a retreat, and a bit messy too!
The thing about getting ready like this is you have to keep it all in perspective. I'm a bit stressed, a bit frazzled, and slightly frustrated with myself. I should have / could have done this a lot sooner, but it didn't happen and is now all last minute, exactly what I didn't want to do, but that's life!
As I've learned from the Happiness Project, what makes you happy doesn't always make you FEEL happy at the time. I know I'm going to have a great time this weekend and that's what counts. Here's to pushing beyond your comfort zone!
Let's go quilt,
