I’m back from Craft camp.
And what an inspiring weekend that was.
I laughed more than I have for ages. Ate amazing food. Shared stories. Met old friends and new, and was amazed, at how easy it is – when you forget that you are supposed to be nervous, how wonderful people can be.
Wonderful people they were. And hilarious.
I came prepared for a solid weekend of sewing, and realised, mid-stream that this was my opportunity to actually take it slow. I wished I had taken some pattern books to study and pore over – to think slowly about, to be experimental with and to take more risks. I learned more about subtraction cutting (oh my gosh, oh my gosh). I pumped out the projects.
But mostly it was just so great to be in the company of others who get the craft thing, and appreciate it is a journey and a pleasure, and something worth experimenting with in a stylish manner. So great to learn, and discuss and open the mind to new possibilities. Those ladies rock.
