Well for those of you that joined us for the Virtual Guild meeting in April I hope you enjoyed reconnecting with other members and watching Sherri Lynn Wood's Program. She actually spoke and answered questions for 1 hour and 45 minutes.
Hats off to June Dudley, Carole Fronk, Cindy Monserud and Deb Roth (I hope I did not miss someone) for all their hard work getting this set up and making our first virtual meeting possible. Those of you that were there or have viewed the video from our website will see how their preparation and production of the meeting was flawless.
I understand that Sherri’s two-day workshop was enjoyed by students from around the world. And that actually using the video format gave everyone a front row seat to her techniques all from the safety of their own sewing rooms.
I’ve been making masks off and on this month and trying to really finish up my open ending list of UFO’s I should have finished last year. I’ve heard from several of you that you are getting a sewing block. I have experienced that too. So, I am limiting my news feed every day, practicing good hygiene, masking up when I have to go out, and learning new techniques and skills to keep me focused.
May is here and I am ready to start planting. By the time you read this I should have planted over 50 day lilies and about 30 irises. I have a steep hillside that I plan on filling with irises, so hubby doesn’t have to mow. I’ll let you know if irises really are “deer-proof“ by the end summer.
Please remember to keep in touch with your sewing friends via phone or zoom (it is free App by the way) since it is so easy to use. Let’s make sure we are there for those that may be alone and unsettled at the way the virus has overtaken our lifestyles. Our mental health and wellbeing are just as important as our physical health. If you need someone or something, reach out to me or the Board. Don’t let Cabin Fever get to you.
I hope to see more of you on the Virtual meeting in May!
