I have signed up to teach a hand applique class at my friend Jan's QS. I finished up this table runner using 3 different methods for hand applique that I am going to teach. It's from Journey's by Whimsicals. This will be sent off to Jan tomorrow to get quilted. She has a nice long arm in the shop and does a beautiful job.
I also spent some time painting. Our house is old and came with the customary closet space associated with a house of this age. Our bedroom has a closet the size of a front hall coat closet. DH has been building a walk-in off our bedroom into the barn. He had it ready for paint this weekend and we got that done. He is taking this week off and put cedar lining up today. It smells great. I'm going to be so happy to be able to take care of things we still have in boxes.
Thanks for all of your comments on DD. I, of course, think she is the best dancer ever. She didn't end up winning anything at the competition, but it was still a good experience. I still don't have a copy of the newspaper picture, but she is supposed to be making a copy for me and sending it when she gets a chance.
