...remember to smile

...remember to bring rotary cutter
...remember to smile
...believe in your self


 ...now I've got some piecing to do!

I had a great experience.  Each day that went by got a little easier.  The first day was the hardest.   I was trying to do to much...with a headache.  Yesterday and today I kept it more simple, smiled and it went much better!  

The ladies at Quilt Works Northwest were so nice to work with and always asked me if I needed anything.    

I also met a few ladies person to person that I've met through blogging, a few that already had my ruler and read my blog.  That by far was my FAVORITE part!!  

Thanks again for your encouraging words and support!

Oh..and Jared took Brittany to the Dentist and they took X-rays for root damage and tested her nerve and she is going to be fine!!  Jared thought it would be funny to call me while I was at Sew Expo and tell me that Brittany's tooth is going to fall out!!  Not funny at all!!

So glad you had a good experience at the Sew Expo -- and you really made me homesick for Tacoma. REALLY glad Brit's tooth is OK. Aren't you glad you took your Aunt Martha's advice?

Glad you made it through sew expo....I knew you would do well. Also glad your daughter's tooth is okay.

Oh, Jenny, I just got in the door from Sew Expo. What a fantastic day! Sorry I missed meeting you. The couple times I went by the Quiltworks booth, you weren't there. I did buy all your patterns. Thanks for sending the ruler. I can't wait to try them out!

Shari said...

Great list - glad you had a great time. Hope it was a great success for you.

Believe in yourself should be at the top of your list. I'm glad things went well. Always hard the first time around.

Hi Jenny, I met you yesterday and I bought your tool. I can't wait to follow your tutorials and try it out! Glad you are having a good time at Sew Expo!

Congratulations on your first major showing. You survived, you learnt a LOT, and you got to see the positives and negatives of quilters. I bet in the end there were way more positives along the way, all enhanced and blessed by those who 'knew' you and hunted you out. Next time it will be different again and I'm sure filled with more blessings and encouragement. Well done, onward and upward.
PS: It would be great now if you had a call to 'show' on the Moda Bake shop blog - fingers crossed.

'groom fingernails' that makes me giggle. I can relate. Glad to know your daughter is fine..what a relief..and your experience at Sew Expo was (in spite of the headache) good.

Mama Pea said...

Glad it went so well! Congratulations! Hope you get lots of orders. Glad the tooth is okay!

Kathy said...

Congratulations on your first Sew Expo Jenny!! I enjoyed reading your list and totally got the 'hold bladder' when your nervous. Glad to hear your daughters tooth is going to be okay and that Jared thought twice about his phone call. Not funny is right!

It was such a treat to meet you at Sew Expo! I bought your ruler and Urban Beads pattern--can't wait to get started :)

For the record, you didn't seem nervous at all while you were demonstrating at the booth--I hope it was a success!
