Another super day! Hey -- we have to look at each and every day with open eyes. We can choose to be sad or upset with events going on or choose to be happy. I CHOOSE to be happy!
I have a new class this afternoon on Color Theory! YES --- I'm so excited about the class, and I've spent a bit of time ripping the house apart looking for certain items. Most of it was in one spot, so that was good. But I cannot find one particular quilt.
|Searching for a quilt|
I swear it's in the "to be quilted" pile. But where? I've looked through my notebook TWICE, and I can't find it. What the heck did I call it? And I don't think I've quilted it. Now I'm physically going through the tubs to find the quilt. I have until 1 PM!!!
I offered this class to one of my groups, so that's why you don't know about it. But I'll be offering it again. It's a two-hour class, and the price is right. So watch for more details on that.
I actually think something like this will work perfectly on Zoom. Everyone gets a front-row seat to all the samples. Nothing gets lost, and well - I love it.
OH -- for those of you who follow my blog via e-mail, you know that Feedburner will go away at the end of this month, so you will no longer get an e-mail with the latest post. I have ONE option as a replacement, and I received an e-mail from them yesterday, although someone had mentioned it before. I think I'm able to install this on my blog to allow e-mails. I have two other options to give you as well. I'll be providing more details on that shortly.
There is great anticipation in the air. Is it possible that we'll be able to open up and have that beer on the patio sooner than we planned? Yesterday, when I walked past the local patio that we frequent, the umbrellas were out. OH MY -- I can taste that beer!!!!

And here's my nature picture of the day. More Rice Krispies on the trees, but in a different formation from those we saw yesterday.

So I am a sucker for books, and people know that! When someone offered me this book a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't say no. This was published by That Patchwork Place (now Martingale). Check out the number - B72. That's a very early book. It was published in 1983!!!! What I love about these OLD books is that they have super information in them. Maybe not the pretty pictures we get in the books today, but the techniques are the SAME. And sometimes, the old techniques are better than the new ones.

When you hear some of the stories of the physical ordeals, you just wonder why? But then people probably ask the same of the quilters. Why do we put ourselves into stressful situations with deadlines? We do it because we love it. That's the same for the ultra runners. I'll stick with my 7 miles a day!
And that's it for today. I sure hope to start having real sewing stuff of mine to show soon. I have two more weeks of the intense number of presentations. Then it drops off considerably. I'm looking forward to that for the break.
On that note, have a super day!!!!
