The final assessment is over. Finally! Shaking off the mud commencing now woo hoo.
So from now on things should start being more positive...ie what Liam can do rather than what he cannot. It was a bit like being caught in the middle of a mud fight. You know its going to be dirty and its unavoidable, but you are not prepared for the weight of the mud clinging to you. The best thing though is that my little treasure is mud-proof and came through the whole process as clean as when it started. Good thing he has autism, otherwise he might have been embarrassed to be seen out with his muddy mother LOL
I have also done a couple of workshops. A day of beginners quilting with Veronique Diligent at Sandlyn House. We were all quite proud of ourselves by the end of the class and Veronique is a lovely person and patient teacher. The other ladies in the class were also lovely and I found someone who can out chatterbox me!!!! (Vikki, Deb & Nora its TRUE, you will believe me if you ever meet the delightfully chatty Janet Rowe).
Unfortunately I took theses photos at home, in class photos would have been much more interesting. But Look I actually quilted...Ta Dah...so maybe its not totally beyond me.
The next class I signed up for was Missy Moo's bag of the month club using these gorgeous fabrics. As there is a fair bit of appliquing to do s not much else to show, but its really great doing this as I have only made the one bag (a few years ago) before and lack confidence with 3D work.
I also spent a bit of time chatting to Vikki who was visiting (buying buttons methinks having read her blog :))
Well classes are not just about the sewing are they...socialising , chatting and getting to know people are also very important.
And just to let you know I haven' been entirely idle during my fortnightly Tuesday craft classes (also at Missy Moo with the wonderful Nora and a group of lovely ladies). I've sewn all these pinwheels and almost sorted out my filler strips.
Also there has been chatting, laughing and chasing Nora around with a camera, the others were stuck around the table so couldn't escape so easily tee hee hee (Kerry's fault really LOL). Unfortunately blogger is refusing to play anymore so cannot show you any of this (signs of relief all round LOL)
Love and hugs to all,
Crash the Retreat!!
