I'm Not Going, Le Sigh!!!

We'll as of this morning it is official.  I am no longer attending the Sewing Summit in October.  I sold my ticket.  To say I am a little sad over this would be a massive understatement.  So if I am so sad, you are probably wondering why I sold my ticket.

Well . . . my cousin just announced that she is getting Married!!  Yippee Skippee for my cousin, I am so excited for her.  However, it falls on the same weekend as the Sewing Summit.  Now if she lived in Salt Lake or even in the surrounding area I would have been able to do both, somehow.  However, she lives in Canada!!!! (Which I happen to really enjoy visiting).  My babysitter (my mom)  for the Summit is headed up to Canada and I am left with the decision of what to do with myself and my family. Weddings are about the only time we get together with this side of the family (And I love spending time with my family)  and the amount of cousins left to get married is winding down.  So, after a long debate with myself I came back to the conclusion that I started with (and that I knew I would come to).  Family comes First.  It's the right decision and I am so looking forward to spending time with my family and celebrating with my cousin!!!

 I will miss getting to meet so many of you amazing ladies!!  I will miss the amazing classes that I was so looking forward. I will miss just hanging out with friends, new and old. I will just have to look forward to Sewing Summit 2013 :)

  1. I knwo I daid it already but I'll be sorry not to see you there; last year you flew right in and out again! Family's got to come first but sometimes it's hard. I think they should get you a pretty bouquet or something!

  2. I am sure you made the right decision nothing beats the good times with family especially those kind of events. Stories can be told for years about things that have happened and if you were not there to be part of those stories you will always regret it. It is disappointing though to miss something you were looking forward to so much.

  6. That's a really tough decision, I'm sure your family will be happy to see you and your friends will be understanding and excited to make new plans to see you. We have all been in your situation one time or another :( I hope you get an extra big piece of cake at the reception!!

  8. Family is important, although your love of quilting is important to you. Maybe you will have to come to Quilt Market with me instead LOL

  10. Those choices are so hard. I feel you made the right one, however. Family does need to come first. It doesn't mean that there isn't disappointment in not being able to attend the summit, though. Have fun in Canada!! :)

  12. Where in Canada? Maybe you can meet up with some quilty people there! I am in Canada and would love to meet you even if for a brief moment amidst all the family time!
    Seriously though, I am sure your cousin, as well as the rest of the family, will be so happy you decided to be there. You will have fun all the same!
