Preparations for the Knitting on the Wild Side camp that I’m hosting
(beginning on September 15th) on Tancook Island are just now reaching a
crescendo, and at the same time I’m also getting ready to go to Michigan
next weekend to attend Gwen Marston’s quilt camp. This truly is camping
season! (I’ve been a bit deprived of the real thing this summer with my broken wrist.)
I have to admit to feeling a bit of a phoney going to Gwen’s camp, as
I’m not a real quilter. However, I have been so inspired by her
exuberant approach to Liberated quilting that I really want to meet her.
I’ve been busy packing a few quilting essentials and my fabric (it’s so
hard to choose) in preparation. It’s all going to be even more fun
because I’m meeting a good friend there and we’ll be doing camp
together, and my broken wrist has mended so well as to be fairly usable now!
I really have no idea what to expect, but I’m sure it is going to be
mind-expanding and totally exhilarating.
Just thinking: Maybe the knitters coming to Tancook Island are just as
excited and picking out their favourite needles and chocolates right now? I hope so.
