I’m feeling really irritated today. I did something really dumb. It is almost painful just to type this sentence. I had my cat in my lap, sitting at my computer answering emails. There was a loud noise, the cat jumped and spilled my tea all over my laptop. So….. it still works, which is truly a blessing, but the letter before ‘c’ and the letter after ‘m’ is not working.
So even as I type this they are not working and I’m just hoping the spell check picks it up so I can go back and correct it.
I’m looking at my screen now and it is full of red lines. I may have to use my phone just so you can read this post.
Sigh. Tiny, daily catastrophes that seem to consume me. Try typing out a paragraph and not using those letters. Apparently, according to all the red lines on my screen, they are the most important letters in the English language.
I will ot correct this setece just so you ca see what I’m dealig with here. See? Crazy Town.
Switching to my phone.
I finished my Swoon quilt, and here are some pics for you.
Pattern: Swoon (available here)
Fabrics: Magic by Sarah Jane
Sewing is one of those things that you can never know all of it. I have been sewing steadily for 8 years now and there is many many techniques I don’t know.
I’ve been making quilts mostly. Sewing clothing, plush toys, etc. is a whole other world. I’ve played with garment sewing a little, but my skills are way under par.
But even with quilts there is still room to learn. I’m always looking for ways to improve my techniques or even just a better way of doing something. For this reason, I take classes.
There are MANY places to take classes, but I have been using Craftsy.
There is no monthly fee, and you pay for only the classes that you want to take. Classes range anywhere from $10-50. And they have sales often enough where you can get discounts on some classes. They also offer quite a bit of free classes.
Here are the classes I have taken to date (you can click the picture to be taken directly to the class):
There are many more that I would like to take. Have you taken any classes that you would recommend? Or do you know of another place you can take a quilting class?1
