Joy and I have been steadily working on our beginning quilting class. This block is of the spinning star pattern that I completed. It has been a very good class. Our instructor is so knowledgeable, yet very patient with beginner's like me who ask too many questions and need too much help! Joy and I have enjoyed doing this together. It is a sweet time to see one of your children old enough to enjoy these types of activities with you.
This next block is called the churn dash. Don't look too closely! It is certainly not perfect. We are currently working on our other two blocks to take into class on Tuesday night where she will teach us how to join them with the sashing. Then we will be looking at possibly doing a second class for borders and binding. I don't know if we will be able to do that one or not, but we are certainly going to try. My dh is doing well in the desert. We still miss him achingly. We have passed the four month mark and are now counting our way down to the half-way mark. I can't wait to get to that point. It will be so nice to have gone farther than we have to go!
Today we are working on troubled areas around the house. We are weeding out some books and taking them to a used bookstore to get credit for them. Then I will hopefully continue packing up more clothes the children have grown out of to take to a local consignment shop. I hope you all have a blessed weekend too!
