Stitching Queen...

Oh, gosh! That was fun. I had five students for the hand applique' class yesterday and everyone was anxious and ready to learn. Two of them had done machine applique' before, but never hand applique'. One of them joked that her husband said, "You mean, we spent all that money on your big sewing machine, and now you're taking a class to do handwork?" We all giggled at the irony.

Our class began at 10 am and with a half hour off for lunch, we worked right through until 2 pm. The time just flew by for me...and my students did really well.
They took home assignments and we'll get together in two weeks for our second session. I'm really looking forward to it.

In addition to repeating this class in the new year, I'm also going to be teaching "Hand Embroidery" and an ongoing "Paper Piecing The Farmer's Wife". I think I'd better wrap up our blog QAL first!


Now, for the important stuff. This is my BIRTHDAY weekend. You know what that means, right? Wearin' the crown, struttin' around like the Queen of our Castle (Oh, wait. I AM!), and enjoying every single second with Handsome. Monday is the Official Observation Day. I wonder if the Post Office will take a holiday? hee hee
Monday is also Memory Lane Monday, which I'm really happy about. Only two left. Monday and then December 31st. I promise they'll be interesting nostalgic jaunts. I'm going to share stories of my favorite people. See you then!

I'm off to celebrate with my girlfriends in our Saturday morning coffee group. I think I'll pick up cupcakes to share with them. After all...A Birthday Queen always celebrates with CAKE! Ta ta for now...
