Off to the Retreat

Hello All

I am off to our Crazy Quilt Retreat in Breckenridge . If I can get a wifi signal I will try to post some pics. I might even get brave and set up the webcam so you can see some of our CQ friends. Though you won't be seeing me. Taking pics of me is not allowed. LOL

Old Friend

Hello All

Here's an old friend?....... enemy? Both?
I haven't touched old Orca here for about 3 weeks. I got tired of seeing it.
I am taking it to the retreat for the other ladies to see. I am not sure if I will work on it there. It would take over the whole table.
Trying to get a clear photo of this is proving to be a bear. You can click on the pics above to get a bigger and better view

Thank You

Hello All

Thank you so much for your advice and good wishes.
I do feel better, just writing my rant helped a lot.

You are right I should just ignore the nasty person. I know that in my head, but as I said I lead with my heart.
Plus I just can't stand to give in, it makes me feel like they win. I have a hard time letting someone get the better of me

Believe it or not I handled this situation better than I would have 10 years ago

Thank you so much for your support

Onto other things. I think one reason I have been in a funk is my clothes. I know very superficial. I don't mean they are old or I don't have enough. I mean they are BLAAAAAhh. Blue jeans and some sort of knit top. Boring!!!
I like COLOR and unusual . Back 5 years ago when I was skinnier and worked in the fabric store, I wore overalls and not just any overalls. I had some with aliens, mummies, Mickey Mouse, candy and a whole bunch of other things. In fact I had over 30 pairs I had made. But I 've gained 20lbs so they don't fit.
I am planning a whole new wardrobe of fun clothes. Maybe you ladies at the retreat will get a sneak preview

Off to fondle fabric
