Yesterday I received a phone call asking me if I would agree to be the quilt show chairman for my guild for next year's show. After a lot of soul searching I really knew in my heart that I had to say no. I am already the 2014 program chairman, which is no big deal as the majority of that "work" is already completed, but I also want to have the time to finally make some of the more labor intensive quilts I keep putting off starting. While this does not entail full time hours, it is still more of a commitment than I want to make at this time. When I called the person a few minutes ago to let her know what my decision is I could tell she was not happy with me. I have to keep reminding myself that it is really okay to say no once in a while!!
