Even in comfortable, sensible and not very attractive shoes, I find that standing for two days in a row is just too much for me.
Wednesday, I had the fun of scribing for the judges at the Pacific International Quilt Festival. This year I was assigned to help out in the traditional quilts category. We were kept hopping with 139 quilts to judge and write comments for. Our long day started at 7:30 am didn't end until 5:30 pm and we were all looking forward to sitting for a while!
Here we all are in front of the Best of Show quilt made by Marilyn Badger. From the left is Christine Porter, then me, then Marla the other volunteer scribe and on the right is Sharon Pederson.
Hopefully the winners will appear soon on the show website. Right now, it's looking like they still have the 2008 quilts up. Maybe their feet are still tired too!
Thursday was my day to see the show and then do a white glove shift for my local quilt guild, Peninsula Quilters. We had to zip fairly quickly to get down most of the aisles of vendors in order to at least glance at everything before then. We nearly made it. After two hours of standing and answering more questions about where the bathrooms were and where the food was than quilts, we took our tired feet and saw the last few rows of the show.
Friday was workshop day for me. I took an appliqué and Japanese writing class given by Yoshiko Katagiri. The appliqué went well the writing, not so much. I don't think I have a future in ink lettering. That's OK, I prefer to needles to paintbrushes.
