Woo Hoo! Chrissy and I have returned safe and sound from the NANI guild stitchy day with Lori Markovic of La-D-Da fame! It was a wonderful day for these stitchin' sisters, and I am thrilled that we were invited to attend.
We started off nice and early for gas (yipes!) and provisions. Our normal provisions need to be packed into a separate covered wagon that we drag behind the vehicle, because if we're more than fifteen minutes from home I figure we'll need supplies for the wilderness. I'm known to stock up on food, water, and emergency supplies for a short trip to Chicago, and we could probably run a Red Cross disaster relief truck from the back seat if we had to. But I was good and medicated enough that I managed to survive with only a Starbucks and a lovely little breakfast sandwich to get me through. (OK, and a bottle of water and extra socks and a little overnight bag "just in case".)
Oh, what lovely ladies! Each and every one of them was kind and nice and sweet and friendly and I wanted to just sit there and bask in their stitchy-ness all day! I feel like I made new friends and learned a lot, and I even got the chance to meet and talk to a real live designer!
Lori Markovic is just about the coolest chick on the planet, if you ask me. She really is an artist with a great sensibility. She created an exclusive project for the day's event and offered her expertise and encouragement all throughout the session. I love her....she's like bud-da.
I don't have any pics for you, because I am a) sensitive to those of you who might actually be in the witness protection program, b) not sure if it's cool to photo an exclusive project, and c) I forgot my camera. Just take my word for it.....a grand time was had by all!
P.S. Stewey got a "B" on his report card from Nanny. Apparently he was a semi-good boy but had some "attitude issues" that prevented a perfect score for the day. Damn dog.
