The Sewing Summit : is this what sheer exhaustion is like?

So The Sewing Summit happened. Not only did it happen, it happened well, it went FAST, and it pretty much went off without a hitch - at least on our end. Amy & I both got about 3 hours of sleep on Thursday, Friday & Saturday nights each and so I came home on Sunday afternoon & pretty much CRASHED. I've been watching movies with the boys and taking Mason to Kindergarten & Grahm to the Dr's (he has a little cold) but other then that - not much. :]


(thanks Susan for letting me snag your Instagram pic)

It was the weekend of a lifetime for me - I was running around like crazy most of the time to make sure things happened when they were supposed to & things got moved and situated and little issues resolved - but I tried, TRIED to remember to step back a few times and take in all the laughs, smiles, hugs, tears & conversations that were happening all around me, because of me. It was a very surreal feeling, and I can't explain in words how happy it made me feel. But more about that later on. :]

I'll be back tomorrow with a fun tutorial for a block as part of the Quilt Uberfest that Scott is hosting, and then all next week I'll do some Sewing Summit recap and behind the scenes posts.

  1. So how did you like only 3 hours of sleep? That is my Friday-Sat-Sun sleep schedule this year. It make me a zombie at work on Sunday and Monday. I love seeing all the blog posts for the weekend. I think you and Amy did an awesome job.
