Ah! I taught the Schnibbles class today at Bearpaws & Hollyhocks. It's been awhile!
I was trying to think of the last time I taught a class, and it might just have been the previous Schnibbles class in the Spring. Surgery and other matters have interfered, I guess. But now I'll be teaching regularly again, and I enjoy it.
I didn't take many photos in class today--just one of the food spread--because you know I like to feed my students in both body and mind. That sounds deceptively noble, because of course, my real reason is just that I like a good sewing party.
We were a somewhat small group today with just seven of us, so we could spread out with plenty of room to cut and sew. And because I didn't have quite as many students as I do for some classes, I actually had a little time to do some sewing too. You know what? I realized it had been awhile since I had done any sewing for myself--where I was just working on something fun that wasn't for a class or just finishing something up to get it done and out of the way.
When I got home and put my sewing things back in the Sweat Shop, I looked at my design wall, and this is what I saw:
YIKES! When did THAT happen? How can there be nothing on it?
So tonight I finished piecing the first four of sixteen blocks for the Paganini Schnibbles. The design wall isn't quite as empty now. And tomorrow? I gotta sew.
