No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth...not quite. None of my goals have been accomplished, I am working to much, its getting to cold and I am getting grouchy! But I am still here and I haven't touched my sewing machine since before I left for vacation. Part of the problem is I can't find it...there is to much crap piled on it.
However, I have been preparing quilting lessons for handpiecing that will be offered at the library where I work. We are doing a Read/Quilt along. We will be reading the The Quilter's Apprentice by Jennifer Chiaverini, and will be learning how to handpiece the same sampler quilt that the central character is making in the novel; the blocks are integeral to the story.
Every week, there will be photographic instructions, as well as a brief synopsis of that part of the book that we have read posted to the library's blog. So if you want to join us, leave a comment and I can point you in the right direction.
Other than that, thats be my life in a nutshell...
Have a wonderful Holiday Season, I even forgot about Chanukah this year!
