happy valentines day
I didn't get a chance to do anything quilty this weekend. We did take a load of things to the new house. Air conditioners, Christmas decorations, wrapping paper and a few other things we knew we weren't going to need until after the move. We also did a bit more clearing out giving away a few things we are sure we are never going to use again. I made an artist friend very happy giving her my husband's old drafting table to use for her painting. He does all his drafting on the computer now and she was trying to decide how she could paint on a slight incline rather than either a flat table or the uprightness of an easel. I tell ya sometimes things just fall into place.
My beginner quilt class started last night. We are making a 4 block sampler wall hanging/table runner. I just love teaching the beginners. They are so eager to learn and so happy with their accomplishments. They always leave the first night with a twinkle in their eye and a stack of fabric to wash and straighten. I have one student who is driving 3 hours each way to my class. There aren't many quilt shops in Northern Maine and she really wants to quilt. She hasn't even started yet and she has already started stashing :o) She came to class with a large tote bag full of fabric. It really makes you wonder which comes first the love of fabric or the love of quilting.
