The other night I told my wife that I was finally going to use my twisted ruler. I bought the ruler a year ago, with the desire to make a wall hanging or quilt with this pattern as I find it enjoyable. Being scared of the weird shape, it has set in a box all that time without being used. Well I am finally turning over a new leaf and doing things that scare me.
On other notes of things that can sound scary, last Thursday was our January meeting for the SLMQG and they elected their new board of officers for the next year. You say that does not sound scary. My thoughts exactly when I walked into the meeting. When I walked out I was thinking other things.
Here is the Board as it was Elected.
President: Colleen Molen
Vice President: Marci Warren-Elmer
Secretary: Sarah Oviatt
Treasurer: Rachel McPhail
Historian: Brooke Johnsen
Web Content: Richard Healey
Charity Coordinator: Barbie Mills
Yes you read it right I am on the board. I am excited in the sense that I guess that means I have been accepted as a male quilter. I am also nervous because now I need to step up and do a job that makes me nervous. Not that I don't have the skills. I am a programmer first and know my way around some web content. I am nervous that I now have some responsibility and can't let them down.
So I like to have a question in almost all posts I write. My question for today is have you ever served on a Quilt Guild Board and if so what position and tell me about it so I know what to expect. If not a quilt board have you ever served on any board for a group or organization and if so same question.
Any way I need some encouragement and advice. I guess I need to step up the modern game a bit more to fit in better.
Oh and if you don't think I am in enough trouble with just the board stuff check out this video of Julia walking. Julia has improved her talents.
