A very late Friday Post.
I had a jam packed weekend! I was in class at my Local Quilt Shop, Bits and Pieces in Pelham, NH with the amazing Debby Brown on Saturday and Sunday. I would have been Friday also, but I was taking my husband down to Massachusetts to meet up with his uncle. They went to a music festival in Gettysburg, PA for the weekend.
So, I got to attend Long Arm Club, a Ruler Class, a Quilt Pro demonstration, the Thread, Needles and Tension class, and a class called "You can do that on a long arm?". All of them were great! Not to mention, there was CAKE and door prizes! I won SO MUCH STUFF and I'm super psyched about it. I won the ultimate door prize for the weekend, a copy of Quilt Pro for Mac! I have only gotten to play with it a little bit as I totally crashed when I got home and took care of the dogs both nights.
Yesterday I spent the day getting everything reorganized after getting so much new stuff (I admit, I bought a lot of stuff, too.) Then I had to wait for my PeaPod delivery, then run down and pick up my husband. So it's been super busy, and you can see why I wasn't able to post on Friday.
I had two quilts that I had finished to take to Show and Tell at Long Arm Club on Saturday morning, after I stayed up super late tacking down the binding on Friday night. My quilt hanging system is all ready to be installed, so I should be having more quilt photos coming soon.
Yesterday, I also cut off some fabric to just PLAY on my long arm. I have been so consumed with FINISHING FINISHING FINISHING that I haven't taken the time to just play around a little. So I have been just playing away last night and this morning, and it feels really really good! I know that I need to get into the habit of drawing more to build up that muscle memory, so that will have to be one of the habits in my habit tracker coming up.
So, there was no fabric in or out last week, but there will be both this week. I'm going out of town this weekend for a short weekend trip with my hubby, so I'm not sure I will be able to post on Friday, I will possibly post on Thursday or after we get back. So, until then...
Piece! And Long Arm!
