Let’s Bee Social #108
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social! Glad you could make it!
It’s so much fun to share what’s going on and to see what you are up to each week.
I have been working on my Ugly Christmas Sweaters blocks and finally have them all sashed up. She’s a finished top! Unfortunately, Monday was another “Snow Day” in our area. The kids had three days off school last week because of the weather. And now this week seems to be shaping up to be the same. So I put off quilting for now. But I did make the backing, prep the binding and make sure I have a piece of batting all ready to go!
Meanwhile, I started working on turning the 21st block that I made into a mini quilt. This was perfect timing! The Michael Miller Fabrics blog is called “making it fun”. And they recently announced a mini quilt challenge. You can read about that here. Here my Wonky Star sweater block is all ready for quilting. More organic wavy lines? Not this time…..
Got any guesses?
What else is new around here?
This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of teaching a workshop for the Elephant Parade pattern. This quilt class took place at E & E’s Cloth and Creations in Newton, Ontario where I taught my first class last year.
I must admit I was really nervous the first time, when I taught the Fox & Friends class last year. But this time it was different. I was much more relaxed and had a wonderful day! There was a much more “party like” atmosphere at this meeting and we had quite a few laughs.
There were five ladies in the class. Melanie was one of them. She had taken the Fox & Friends class and was back for more! It was my first time meeting with Audrey, Nora, Brenda and Judy. But it won’t be my last meeting with Audrey and Nora. Audrey is signed up for the Giraffe Family class and Nora is taking the Love Birds quilted pillow class with the Listowel Creative Needle Club.
If you are in the Perth County, Waterloo County or even the Huron County area (where I live) and are interested in taking a quilt class with me, check out my Events Page and see about signing up for one of the other classes I will be teaching in Newton this spring. Send me an email if you would like more information. I’d love to hear from you!
