This has been a busy week in the Redford family…

Not one but TWO babies!!

On Tuesday Emily Isabelle arrived…Julia and I paid a short visit to check her out on Wednesday.

John and Joanne were looking good. I’m planning on taking another peek soon.

THEN on Thursday, Christopher John entered the world, a little bit early but doing very well. Pictures to follow after inspection by grandma and grandpa… Congratulations to James and Sarah.

So now I’ve got your attention,

Do you remember a long time ago… last August I made a trip to Golden, Colorado to tape a class with the Quilting Company? You can read about it here.

Well, the class has finally gone live and you can take part.

Walking Foot Quilting – Beyond the Ditch is more than three hours of interactive walking foot fun. Here’s the description on the Quilting Company web site.

“Looking for tips to quilt on your home sewing machine? Or is the stack of quilt tops piling up and you need to start clearing some space? Catherine Redford takes the mystery (and the fear!) out of successful preparation and gives you many ideas for finishing quilts. Let our home quilting expert show you the way, start her course now.”

You get the video content, four patterns, class notes, and the opportunity to ask questions for the teacher (that’s me!) to answer.

Wallhanging/table topper pattern…

You can find out more by clicking on the button at the side of my blog. (look to the right, under the Facebook link!) It’s $49.99 for the course but I do have a coupon for you…  FOOT10. You enter it at checkout. The coupon code ($10 off) is valid until April 9th.


(I also got a new sewing machine this week… can you believe I’ve been bit busy and it’s still  in the box? Yes, there will be pictures soon)
