giving my first talk


Putting together a display board for my Twelve Days series of ornaments. It's a good thing I'm only up to number 7 or I'd have to make another board. I'm thinking when the series is complete I'll need an actual white Christmas tree especially for them (instead of foam core).


The display (and these bags of samples) are for a talk I'm giving at the Madison Station Quilt Guild meeting next week and I don't mind telling you I'm a little (VERY) nervous about it. Talking. Out loud. About my stuff. In front of actual people. My sister is currently serving as guild president so she'll be there for moral support or perhaps to heckle me from the front row.

  1. Don't worry, you will be talking to fellow crafters who will love everything you show them. I'm envious that I'm in Massachusetts and can't come.

    1. :-) Thanks so much, Lisa! You are such an encouragement! I don't remember much about my talk so I'll have to take your word for it! It was nice to get my feet wet and take away some pointers for next time (if ever!). I wish you and Susan great success with your new business!
