It's Official...

... I am currently suffering from a case of quilters envy.  I soooo want to go to the Sewing Summit this fall, but even if I could swing the airfare and registration fee, I will have a month old baby and even if I felt like I could bring her/him, it is one of the busiest times of year for my husband at work and he won't be able to take off time to watch the kids - eek!  All of the cards are stacked against me this year.

  Then I was silly enough to read through all of the teacher profiles - they have a great line up! - but it somehow made me feel very old and un-hip compared to all of the super cool teachers/bloggers/quilters.  Sigh...

Thankfully, I felt much better after working in the yard for a bit.  The cabbage, lettuce, broccoli, brussel sprouts, spinach and peas are planted and my tulips are blooming.  Life is good even if I am a crazy competitive whiner.  :)  So, go to the Sewing Summit, take tons of pictures and write all about it so I can live vicariously through you!

Edited:  Did you see that tickets sold out in 12 hours?!?  Wow!


  1. Tee hee - those were my sentiments exactly. One of these years I'll get there, but sadly it won't be this year.

  2. I am in the same boat!! It would cost over 1000 for me to go, with airfare, hotel, registration. I will just have to admire everyone else :o)

  3. Of course something cool like this would take place in SLC. Utah is so trendy...arg!

  4. Exact same scenario..I could probably swing the flight, etc, but it is the busiest time of the year for my husband...waaaaahhh!!!

  5. I hear you! It would be fun to go, but I'm definitely not in the hip, nor trendy category. I love your blog and the things you write about so no worries--you've still got lotsa fans. Twelve hours?? Yikes!!


  6. Maybe we should have our own little fun blog party "Missing the summit" or "Partying with the Summit" lol. There are so many not able to go (like me) we can have our own fun no?
