We’ve made it through half of daughter’s estimated recovery period and I kicked off the second half in company with a small group of lovely quilters. Working our way through the Quilta Figurer class, we spent two days together this weekend. The students were eager to learn which is key in such a labor intensive class, going through different techniques and patterns.
I did my first class ever in English as one of the students was Canadian, and it worked rather well I’d say, there were no stitching through fingers or other hiccups due to communication problems.
They made lots of great samples and all started their quilted shapes projects during class.
I am looking forward to see the finished projects; they all turn out so differently. At the end of the second day my fingers were itching to get stitching, so I’m looking forward to life getting back to normal. Right now my batteries are pretty much empty at the end of the day, but it’s ok, life is quite good after all. Today grandbaby was 7 months and got his first tooth and grandson did his first preschool homework. Important milestones indeed.
After weeks of taking care of young people I really did enjoy a couple of days in the company of grownups outside my family, and even better – quilters.
Thank you for a fun weekend and for being such great students ladies!
