The two owners are fantastic and treat me like family giving me tasks to do that sometime I think are beyond my ability. Juanita & Belinda have more faith in me than I have in myself. Right now Juanita has me making covers for her trip to England. Belinda wants me to learn how to quilt on the HandiQuilter and on my BabyLock. I tried to explain that I have taken classes from people like Sue Nickles etc and failed. However, I am finding out that I know more about piecing, quilting, and even color placement than I thought I knew. (Maybe I was absorbing information in all those technique classes from National Quilt Gurus like Elenor Burns, Bonnie Hunter, Charlotta Angotti, etc...those UFOs served a higher purpose!)LOL
The classes I am teaching at J&B are going well with more and more students signing up for Crush (ugh!)and for Carpenter's Star. Now I have to get the class samples quilted, write my handouts, and make the duffle bag for the next class. This time for Crush I choose bright bright colors that were actually stacked together on the shelves. Don't tell the students it is that easy! They spend hours hunting for just the right color combinations. Thank you Bonnie Hunter for releasing me from that waste of time. Yep, I have finally accepted my inner Scrap Piecer.

So that fabric will go into my stash for a quilt for our spare bedroom b/c DH loves it! So I will be making a piece for the couple that can be used as a table runner for the rehearsal supper and then as a bed topper later using Eggplant purple and Blood Red. Wish me luck!
Well, it is time to get ready to leave so
Lator, Gators! Remember when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
