Here I am sitting at the SLC airport, patiently awaiting my flight back home. I can't wait to see my family, and I am excited to squeeze my main squeeze.
The Zermatt was a beautiful place to stay. I took advantage of their workout facilities (you know, you have to try to work off all that "quilting" chocolate), and even used the hot tub and sauna. The national teachers each had something new to teach me. I just said a nice goodbye to Mary Stori a few feet away at the Delta gates.
I got some work accomplished, but not nearly enough to brag about. Instead, we spent our time, looking at the quilt show, shopping at the vendor mall, and visiting with family. This is the first year for my cousin Krista and my sister Brooke to come, and we just had to show them a great time. We learned from each of the national teachers at our luncheons, and I came away with renewed appreciation of the art of quilting, and how it means something different to everyone.
My class was fun. I am amazed that anyone came to it, being the last class of the last day, but there were 6 students in all, and it was so fun to see everyone's choices. One lady even made a traffic light out of her 3 big circles....some seriously inventive stuff.
I am sad to leave the cool weather, colorful fall mountains, and dear family. But, my sweet babies are awaiting my return, and I can't wait to see them.
