« Conference - Part 2 | Main | Yipee!!! »

Home from the Conference

What a week!  It was well worth all the last minute work to get projects finished to take to NH with me!  I met a LOT of people during the course of the week from all over the country - Alaska, Florida, Arkansas, Kansas, Nevada, Missouri, Arizona, New Jersey, New York, Maine, New Hampshire, Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.  There are probably a few states I've forgotten to mention; if so, I apologize to those I've missed!

Needless to say, I had an absolutely FANTASTIC time!  I would recommend everyone to go to one of these conferences at least once in their lifetime.  It was an eye-opening experience to say the least!  There were SO many beautiful creations to be seen, and everyone stopped to talk, touch and feel everyone else's "pets".

The design competion that was sponsored by CGOA was unbelievable.  The creations that came out of this......simply amazing.  This wedding gown was the grand prize winner.  My picture doesn't even begin to give this dress justice! 

(Ok, that's not working!  While I was gone, the formatting on this blog site has been adjusted.  Now I'll have to figure out how to get pictures uploaded and resized to be useful, rather than this humungus "thing" that I've been trying to get down to "normal" viewing size!  And figure out a few other kinds of new "perks" that were added along the way.  EEesh!)

I'll get more posted later.  Now I need to finish unpacking all my new goodies I brought home with me, then get started on the regular duties I've missed out on for the past week!

By the way, I sold five patterns while I was there! ( my heart has finally started to settle back to normal. Finally!)

Have a good day!  :)

Your christening outfit made from #50 was simply amazing. You should put a picture up here on the blog!
