Seminar in San Antonio
This years seminar in San Antonio was HOT…as in 100+ degree days. We had one day when it only got to 99. The Marriott River Center was a great venue. All the classes, banquets, shop, bookstore and exhibit were all on the same floor. No chance to get lost :).
I arrived on Friday the 26th having left my DH in the motorhome in Rapid City, SD. Saturday was a day off. I volunteered for a two hour shift in the bookstore and got ready for my first class on Sunday. The air conditioning in the hotel was working overtime and it sure felt good. Light sweaters were welcome but I would rather be a little cool than too hot.
Sunday I began my three day class with Nancy Cucci. The project is entitled Spring Delights. Nanci is a delightful teacher and her instructions are very clear.
This projects consists of 20 squares all done on congress cloth in wonderful spring colors. Each square has a border. After tying off all my “spaghetti” from class I decided that I would work on all the borders in the evenings. It is easy stitching without much chart reading and I could make progress before I got home.
On Sunday the exhibit opened and I went to see where my Far Horizons was hung. Not seeing it on the walls I got concerned until I saw it laying on a table with a big red 2nd place ribbon. I could hardly believe it. I almost jumped up and down like a schoolgirl. It was entered in the Class Projects by a Professional catagory. I haven’t taken a picture of the ribbon yet but you will see it soon.
There is more to tell…tune in tomorrow
