I Am Being Paid to Talk? (To youuuuuuuuuuuuu!?!)

GUYS! I keep forgetting to tell you, but I am the official speaker at this month's meeting of the KC Modern Quilt Guild, which is, DUDE, this Thursday! (The hamster will be there, too, I guess?)
 I'd like to say it will be Interesting and Informative and Whatnot, and HOPEFULLY it will be be all of those things, but I make no guarantees-- but it will be SOMETHING, and there will be PICTURES, and I will probably embarrass myself in some way, but whatever. (And my MOM and 3RD GRADE TEACHER will be there so there will definitely be no cursing.)
I'm kinda going to meander all over the place, topic wise, but I will be focusing on what the fabric design process consists of, how I conned my way into the fabric design, my design inspiration, and the tiny crumbs of insight I've picked up along the way. I'm really excited.
(I know the previous sentence might have seemed sarcastic, because it had no exclamation point, but it was not. It just seemed redundant! To have an exclamation point! On such an exclamatory sentence! I AM EXCITED!)
 So! You should come, if you want! If you've never been to a guild meeting, that's awesome, it is totally not scary. (My default is to be scared of any sort of public assembly I have not previously experienced.) Do not be afraid! And it is free! (Unless you have attended as a guest before, and then I think it costs some money? But first times is free!)

And did I mention that Marmalade Fabrics is sponsoring this meeting? Meaning, there will be FABRIC for sale? It's a fact. Look it up. (There's nowhere to look it up, so just trust me.)

Ooh Tia invited me, and I said yes, because I can actually go this time. She did not mention that YOU,whom I sort of think is a rock star, would be speaking! Would it be weird if I brought my bag I brought from your shop? I apologize in advance if I make a fool out of myself in front of you, because I get all awkward in social situations around cool people. Middle school flashbacks, I guess. You will be a great speaker!
