I'm having PERFORMANCE ANXIETY

On Sunday I'm going to the Asilomar Empty Spools Seminar.

I'm going to study with Sally Collins for a whole week.

Sally Collins makes perfect, precise, fabulous quilts with tiny pieces.  I wish I could do that.

We'll be doing drafting and precision sewing.

We're supposed to bring "our" quilts for show and tell... 

We're supposed to "show" to the likes of Sally Collins, Gwen Marston, Judy Niemeyer, Mary Lou Wiedman and more...............

GIVE ME STRENGTH...  suddenly I can not sew a quarter inch seam, and all my quilts look like they came from the fifth grade Girl Scout group............

I'm gonna like everyone else's fabric more than mine.

I want to be the best in the class.............but I know I won't be.......

Giggle.....you may be having anxiety, but you still have your sense of humor about it.

Kathleen: You will be fine! You are so talented in so many areas, others will be in awe of all you do. Just telling them how many caring quilts you make per year will have their heads reeling! Even taking your hexagon quilt unfinished will have them begging for mercy!

Can't wait to hear all about it.
