Sorry I didn't get this in last night. I came home, fed the animals and crashed. I was sooo exhausted. Mostly because I didn't get a lot of sleep the night before my workshops.
I kept waking up about every 2 hours and then finally got up a 4:45am to get ready. I left the house at 7:00am to be sure I would get there by 8:30am and be sitting in my class ready to go. Well I got there okay, found a parking spot ($6 for event parking) and arrived 20 minutes early, (plenty of time to find a good seat and get situated)only to find that my first work shop was cancelled. :(
After getting the refund paper work completed I now had 4 hours to kill before my next workshop, so off I went to look at everything.
WOW! So much to see, vendors, quilts, people (I met some of the gals that are in my online quilt group) and more. I checked out several long arm dealers, picked up a new 18 inch ruler and a book. I looked at the quilt collections and it was time to get something to eat and go to my next workshop. I didn't even have time to go look at all the quilts that were on the main display floor. I was so tired by then I wasn't sure I would make it through my workshop, but I did and I am so glad I took it. I learned so much in such a short time and the teacher was fun and very informative, not to mention patient with us newbies.
Now I need to find out about quilting on my little Janome so I am going to their display today to see about a quilting foot for free motion.
Here are some of my practice quilt sandwiches. It was such a fun class.
I practiced writing my name.
This is me practicing stippeling. Can you see the instructors stippeling in there? It is the really nice and smooth one.
Such a serious sewer. Just trying to get my hands and foot to coordinate.
Yes that is a new Janome we practiced sewing on. Boy was it nice. That is about it, if you have any questions go ahead and post a comment and I promise to get you a prompt answer.
Today my first workshop is at 1:00pm and then another at 5:30pm. Can't wait to tell you all about it.
It's raining out now and looks like the weather won't be so great. I am sure it will be fun at the show and maybe I will see you there.
Hope you have a great day.
