And as for why I wasn't quilting this weekend - I spent the weekend at a dance competition. I started taking ballroom dance lessons three years ago. I had been to a social dance, and every partner I danced with accused me of leading. One went so far as to say "Ok, you lead, I'll follow". I was quite embarrassed, and decided it was time to take some lessons. I told them that I had a simple desire - to learn how to follow. A few lessons in, and I was completely hooked. I'm well past the point where people accuse me of leading :) but I discovered that I love dancing, and I've continued lessons ever since. This year I drummed up the courage to attend the annual competition in Niagara Falls. It was a fabulous weekend that involved a lot of dancing and very little sleeping :)
This is a picture of me and my instructor, from the practice party at the studio last week. I'm waiting to see what pictures came back from the competition.
