I thought it was supposed to be sunny today!
No matter, I was off to the city
for a class in fabric crochet.
It was a four hour class and we had to do ALOT of prep work
before hand to make sure we were ready to really learn something.
I am making a basket. This is as far as I got, I thought I had enough
fabric prepared to make the whole thing! hahaha.
The prep work was cutting yards and yards of fabric into
2" strips and then ironing 1/2' edges inward.
Yes, the prep work wasn't fun!
This class was at the City Quilter and Judy was our teacher.
I love to take classes and be with other quilters,
it's so fun to sew in a group. It's exhilarating to learn something new!
This group was focused!
We needed to concentrate on the counting and adding . . .
But there was some fun involved too!
This is Judy's basket and her class sample,
about an hour into the class I asked her how much she wanted for it.
That was met with lots of laughter, but no price.
So on I crocheted . .
I ran out of my prepared fabric as I finished the bottom,
but I have to say I am going to iron the million more strips
I have cut and keep going.
This is a fun basket and I want one!!
While I was happily crocheting away,
who happened to peak in but the
She was out and about shopping with friends.
I think they did some damaged, but I didn't see a thing I promise!
I was a good girl, just two yards of dots for binding.
On another note . . .
The Daily News yesterday was very funny.
Poking fun at the end of the world
We are all still here and things seem to be okay.
Keep sewing ladies!
