Busy, busy, busy . . . . .

Not much sewing going on around here.  I picked up Buttercup (my Aurora 440QE)  from the Bernina doctor (she went in for her annual checkup) last Thursday and haven't even taken her out of her bag yet!!


I was one of the lucky ones that won a GoCutter from Accuquilt and Paulette.  Thanks, guys!!!!  It came to my door this past Monday and I haven't even opened it up!  I did take it out of the box to make sure all the parts were there but I haven't had time to play with her yet!  I need to dedicate some time but when?!!


So what have I been up to?  This . . . . . I turned this pile . . . . .


into this . . . . .


My first patterns !!  I will be teaching at our state quilt guild retreat next weekend.  When the classes are over, I will put them up for sale on my blog and/or website.

I have also been making the kits for the classes . . . . .


And I can't make the kits with my wool if I don't do this . . . . .

With this . . . . .

To get this . . . . .



I also filled in for our church secretary this week who had to go to Ohio for family business.  So anyone at our church on Sunday . . . . . if the bulletins are wrong . . . . .I'm just saying . . . . .

And Dear Hubby wants to go apple orchard hopping tomorrow in the mountains.  It's the only Saturday that is only closely available this fall.  I'm going to have to take some work with me in the car.  Or at least a good pen and paper to make a long list of what I have to do by Thursday.  Retreat starts on Friday morning and I can't wait.

And everybody start enjoying the fall coolness that is supposed to be here sometime Monday morning!!  Time to pull out a sweater!!!

Blessings, Cathi

I love a prepared teacher and I'm sure your class will be a huge hit!! It looks like a class I'd like to take:)

Congrats on the Go! I know I love mine, and am sure you will too.

Your patterns look great, and so does the wool. Do you sell the kits at all or all they just for use in your workshops?
