Wow, I haven't posted in a little while... I've been having lots of fun being back in the States. We had our marriage celebration party on 7-7-07 and dh flew back home a little over a week ago. In the meantime, I have been busy visiting and enjoying summer. I went to my very first quilt workshop last weekend in Greyling with Pam Holland! Imagine coming over here to attend a workshop with a Australian quilt teacher! It was such a great experience, we had three days to design our own quilt. I will post some photos later. I learned so much and am so glad that I did this course even though I have been intimidated to attend an actual workshop.
Yesterday, I managed to get over another hurdle in my sewing career by making my first bag! Well, actually it is my first sewing pattern ever! This was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed working through each step of the project. It turns out to be quite a nice little bag. I've already given this one to my mom, but I plan on making a few more for practice. I found some Amy Butler Charm for half price at a local quilt shop. For me that is like having gold lying around and then selling it for half price!
