the bestest weekend EVER.
this past weekend i had the pleasure of sewing, chatting, eating and drinking with the loveliest of ladies for two whole days. thank you jo (the superwoman), kirsty (the technical genius), christie (the sewing guru), julia (the comedian) and carly (the all rounder) for a fantastic weekend!
in the weeks leading up to this i was really worried about how i'd feel leaving mae and how much i would miss her while i was away. when the time came, however, i surprised myself by sneaking out while she was napping and leaving her grandfather in charge for a few hours before shane got home. i drove away without a second though, i was THAT keen to get to sewjourn*, and felt such a degree of GLEE the whole drive up it was almost embarrassing. that feeling stayed with me pretty much all weekend - getting up at 8:30am to fog rolling across a country field and making my way out to the studio to find a few cozy ladies already out there, crafting away? that, my friends, is true glee.
true glee is also coming home refreshed and happy to a little munchkin who has acquired a whole new range of sounds and actions from a fun weekend with daddy and seems much bigger than when i left : )
*and speaking of sewjourn - perfection. utter gorgeousness and perfection. the other group of ladies who weekend there were completely right (thank you to them for letting us know it exists!)
