Had a wonderful Quilt Class

Yesterday I was able to go to a class sponsored by the Northeast Iowa Quilt Guild taught by Rosalie Baker and it was a wonderful class Picture of one of Rosalie Baker's quilt  it was a wonderful class and a lot of interesting info was shared. She is a teacher that explains how she create's such quilt and is very encouraging that you to can do things like this all you need to do is try.

She shared some wonderful techniques. So if you ever find a chance to take a class or go to a lecture by Rosalie Baker it definately worth while.

Pod cast and good books

I was looking at Annie Smith’s Pod cast and web site and found a book there that I had forgotten about. A Thread of Truth  by Marie Bostwick I received a free copy of this book for out quilt guild library last summer and set it aside for a while. Then ran across it and picked it up to read. I greatly enjoyed the story and it is book to in a set. The first one is A Single Thread and she has a new one released  A Thread so Thin. I am going to have to start looking for these titles or check at the library and see if they can get them.

So hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter

Saturday and Easter

I have had a busy day loading programs on to my new lap top. The bummer part of all this is I have to get all the data files off the old lap top that died and will take a bit.

Have to extract the hard drive out of it and I hope/think that it will be fine then move all the files off the hard drive to either a CD or a flash drive and then import it all into this system.

I am not as sure that I like Window’s 7 it is definitely different compared to XP.

I have trimmed the last 8 quilt blocks of Summer Breeze quilt and hope to get them sewn together tonight. Had sort of thought it would be good to clean up my sewing room things seem to be piling up here. How does that happen? It seems like an area goes from picked up to messy in no time at all.

New Kitchen

Well last weekend we started the empting of the kitchen. Boxing up stuff and moving some things to the camper that is going to be the summer...
