So, I took so long between posts that I am about to burst with things to write about. I am amazed at how therapeutic blogging is. It's been several days since I posted and I am feeling all pent up with things to say! I also have been really busy working on projects....the first one I want to tell you about is a quilt I just finished for a very dear friend. She moved away recently and I miss her dearly! This is the kind of friend who know all your deepest, darkest secrets (and loves you anyway). So, to tell her how very much I love her...I did the only thing I know how to do - I made her a quilt. It's not a total surprise, I wanted her to love it so I asked for her input on fabric selection. I think she has been anxiously waiting for a posting about her quilt, so.....S, this is for you!
I taught a beginning quilt class at Bernina of Dallas on Saturday and I have another class tomorrow night. I will be teaching School House Tunic from Sew Liberated. I have made this tunic twice now and I just love it. It's really easy to make and looks so cute. The possibilities are just endless for personalization. It looks great with leggings or over jeans. But above all, I just really love teaching. It doesn't matter what I'm teaching, it's the act of sharing knowledge and watching the excitement as the project comes together, that I love. I'm so happy to have found such a great shop that lets me do something I love so much. The gals at the Bernina store are so helpful and have a wealth of knowledge between them. And we all know how much I love my new machine! I am truly grateful to own such an amazing tool. I have been thinking lately that she really needs a name.....I'm thinking maybe we need to have a name Michelle's Bernina contest. With a prize for the winner? Hmm.....I'll come up with the specifics and post the rules in the next couple of days and we'll see if she can't end up with a name finally.
