Remember that mess in the basement?
Sarah came over and first we worked in this space…
Note lack of pile on the cutting table and the clear desk in the front of the picture.
Then I got to feeling guilty about making Sarah help, put on my big girl panties and lo and behold…
One machine all ready to go…
Two machines all ready…
I played with the panoramic sweep function on my camera to make the most of the occasion….
So what to do next?
With everything tidy I could search out all my quilts to take to Heritage Quilters in Lockport and Celeste and I set forth. We took Riverwalk‘s Raffle Quilt for an airing. It looked great all set up and Celeste sold a good number of tickets.
No pictures of the speaker because she was so enthralling that the photographer forgot to take any… So believe me, I dressed up and put make up on for the occasion.
With everything sorted there were no more excuses and I set to work on some samples for the next few month’s classes at Pieceful Heart Fabrics.
I am offering a Yo-yo tea towel class for the Quilter and Child class this quarter. Take a plain tea towel, add some nice ribbons and make a dozen yo-yos with the Clover yo-yo maker… Attach the yo-yos with buttons sewn all the way through and voila!
I am also adding a more modern look embroidery class using a sarahjane designs pattern called 3 Little Birds. It comes with an iron-on transfer and I completed it with Finca perle cottons.
I still have to finish a wool applique piece. I have stitched all the pieces down and now it’s ready for some embellishment.
Too much fun, all the time in this house. I will update my schedule in the next few days and you will see just how much fun I am anticipating.
