As the sunlight is lasting past 10 pm and the days are warming it is like reverse gardening. We put away our sewing things in exchange for the green stuff that makes Alaskan summers wonderful.
The outdoors beckons for us to come away from our machines and projects and play in the dirt and plants. And the flowers of Alaska have a way of enticing us, saying "come and pick me, pick me!"
We have some good classes set this summer to help bring us back into the creative fabric form despite the summer ruminations. Alaskans well know that the return of the night brings us back home to sit with friends and sew to our hearts’ content.
I have accepted a job back home in Arkansas and will be moving soon. I will miss catching up with all you ladies at our meetings, my sewing buddies.
I have learned so much from this group in the last eight years. I was a self-taught quilter when I came, and this group helped me expand my skills and creativity. Which is what you are supposed to do in a guild, increase your learning and make great friends.
Thank you all for being so open and welcoming. I will avidly look at the Facebook pages to keep up with you all.
