Catching up



I taught the Circle and Spin class in Dunlap yesterday. What a nice group of ladies...after about 10 min. I felt like I had known them forever. They are part of a quilt guild that encompasses several area towns. They did very well, as you can see from the following photos.

I did something I have never done before, and hopefully won't do again. I took my camera, but had left my memory card in my computer!
 
So I went to take pictures and  no memory card! Luckily Paula had her camera and let me use it. 
 
As they worked they talked about upcoming projects and workshops they are going to have. It all sounded like great fun!


 
Several of them had shopped for fabrics, then done some trading, and they were amazed that even though they had some of the same fabrics, their blocks all looked different.
 

 
 
I will post these pictures to my flickr account too. Just click on the link on the side of the page.




 
Somehow I didn't manage to get everyone in a pic, but you can see they are hard at work. We had the class in the local parish center.

See I think you could do this kind of stuff more . . . break out of the mold of your normal classroom and reach out to some new students.

I sure wish I could take a class from you, I just love what everyone is doing...now you will laugh at me, when you said circle and spin class, I was thinking of bycycling.....I thought wow, she taught a spin class.....she is amazing...but you still are amazing with the thread and material....

Thanks Jean, I had so much fun in class. I hope to get it finished soon. When I got home I found another pile of fabric I was going to cut, but didn't. So now I might just trade out a few of the ones that aren't cut yet and add ever more colors. Thanks!
