May is going by fast...........

This has been a busy month. The past three days found me participating in a Bernina 830 machine mastery class. Those of you who have not experienced this machine need to go by their local Bernina shop and give this machine a try. The things this machine can do is endless! The educators are still discovering new things it is capable of doing.

(This post may not make sense when I finish. I've been to the eye doctor this am. They dilated my eyes, and I am having trouble focusing! I am looking through a fog.)

This month I taught a Reversible III class at the LQS. Here are two of the finished blocks. The first is the block using very traditional fabric, and the second is done with batiks. Two very different looks.

Also the class schedule for the LQS is finished for the next newsletter. I need to get the class sign-up book completed and then ALL will be finsihed for another 3 months! I'm always glad when I have this behind me. Coming up with new classes can be a little crazy.

I have been busy working on a quilt for my daughter, (pictures to be posted after it is quilted (hopefully next week). Also one of the local quilt guild I belong to, had a lady come an show the "Square in a square" technique. Of course I had to try this method out, and those pictures will soon be posted also. I really need to learn to stay focused on ONE project, start to finsih, before starting a new one. There are TO MANY UFO's lying around my sewing space.
I and DD are planning a short trip to Asheville for a girls only weekend. Neither of us have been to the Biltmore House in a long time. Can't wait to see the new rooms that have been opened to the public since the last time we were there. Also the Biltmore Village shops are on our list to visit.
May all in bloggerland have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Summer is offically here!

Quilt Memories said...

Have fun, I was born in Asheville and a couple of my Great Uncles were game wardens on the Biltmore Estates, and lived in a couple of the small houses there. We used to visit them a lot when I was young. I remember as a child playing in front of that "BIG" house. Never went inside until about 15 years ago and DH and some friends and I went for a tour, it was spectacular. I do want to go back again sometime soon. Also,there is a cemetary on the grounds and some of my ancestors are burried there. We did visit that about 5 years ago and road around some.That is a very interesting place.
Have fun, see you soon. Bobbin
