Speech is Over and I'm Burned Out!

Well, the long-anticipated (and feared) speaking engagement has come and gone, and the relief is huge!  It actually went pretty well.  I managed to fill 45 minutes and could have talked more, but my quilt holders were moving too quickly.  They had each quilt folded and put away before I could talk as much as I wanted!  Some of the ladies in the audience asked good questions.  In fact, one lady seemed determined to challenge my knowledge of quilting, but I think my credibility survived.

After the speaking engagement I delivered 16 quilts to the pediatrics department at the hospital and began a break from quilting.  I worked so long getting those 16 ready that I am kind of sick of it.

The hands can't stay idle, though.  I'm knitting again!  I have just completed my first sock.  When I got the heel turn to work, I was so thrilled.

Way to go Sheryl, so proud of you. How wonderful you donated 16 quilts..I would be burned out also!

Glad it went well. Public speaking is not my cup of tea, so I can appreciate your fears.
