HMQS in Salt Lake City

Oh my gosh, I am getting so excited.  I am going to HMQS this week in Salt Lake City!  I am almost beyond excited.  I am taking classes from, Pam Clarke, Judi Madsen, Sue Patten, Renae Haddadin, Gina Parris- Perkes, DeLoya Jones, and Linda V. Taylor.  Wow, even now I am excited.  I am so looking forward to meeting all these quilters, learning from them, being submerged in a quilting environment, and honestly, I am looking forward to getting away.  

I love my life, my family, and all that goes with it, but we have had some ups and some devastating downs lately, and this trip is coming at just the right time for me.

Tonight I was able to finalize my shuttle reservations from the airport to the hotel and back, so I am feeling confident and ready to travel.  I am not planning on renting a car.  I can walk to and from the hotel to the show and back, but securing the shuttle from the airport and back was something I wanted to feel confident about before leaving home.  Now I am ready, and will be leaving Wednesday.  I am so excited.

Sharing your good news with friends makes it even better, thanks for sharing with me,

Esther

  4. Lucky, lucky you!! I took classes with Pam Clarke and Gina at Road (along with Myrna Ficken, Karen Sievert and Lisa Sipes) and DeLoa in Maine but Sue and Judi are on my wish list. Have fun, fun, fun! If it is anything like my experiences, it will be life altering in so many ways.
