I met my work goals and now  have the ability to work on my "fun" stuff, guilt-free.  I finished binding two of the three quilts, including making the labels.  One more to go.  I am also almost finished with quilting Diane's quilt, so I will hopefully send it off next week.

I also decided to do something I hadn't done before, take a on-line "class".  I have been purchasing fabric from Craftsy for a while, but never explored more than that.  At the last Guild meeting, there were several members who recommended their classes.  I have really wanted to "notch-up" my quilting.  I am pretty good with panto's and boards, and am the "meandering queen", but I have been afraid of branching out into more custom quilting.  When I tried it with the help of books, it looked---well bad!  When Craftsty had a sale recently, I decided to take a chance, and boy am I glad.  To date, I have only been quilting on paper, but I am at a point where I am now ready to try my hand on fabric.  Wish me luck!

It is beautiful outside!  Fall is clearly here---and although it is really beautiful here, I am a little sad.  I love the summer, and don't really feel the same about winter.    It is funny--- major decisions in my life come during fall.  The decision to move to Chicago, to Florida and to Tennessee all came in the fall.  At this point, other than getting our bath redone, there isn't any major decisions involving moving looming ahead, so I am safe there.

Well, I just wanted to check in and recommend the classes at Craftsy!  Hopefully I will have something to show soon.  I also want to add, they have great customer service as well!

Have a great day!!!!!

  1. You've talked me into taking a class! Funny but someone else was talking about Craftsy's classes this weekend at Quiltfest. Sooo I definitely have to tackle one. I've been doing alot of thinking myself in that I don't belong to any local guild-they all meet during the day and I work. Bummer. So I have to find a new avenue to learn more and branch out with my quilting. I feel like I've been getting a bit stale!
    Have fun with the class!! Hugs...
