I have a busy month ahead of me. I am teaching Beginning Quilting at our local quilt store. Five students and at least two that are extremely new to sewing. So lots of hand holding ahead of me. The four Mondays of this month from 9:30 to 3:00. Lots ahead of me.Progress on my Alex Anderson Baskets class is coming along slowly. I still have 3 more of the basket blocks to sew together and get on the design wall and lots more of the blocks that go between them. This quilt top is much slower going together than I thought. These connect blocks are a bugger to make, they just take a good deal of time and pinning to get those seams all lined up and nested properly. I got feed up with baskets and decided to take a brief break and sew 3 Christmas runners. My husband and I have coffee every Tuesday morning at a local Starbucks with 3 other couples. One couple invites us to their home every December for coffee instead. They fill their home full of Christmas trees and decorations. Dozens of trees fully decorated, it is quite the site to see. So this year I decided to gift the 3 ladies with a small Christmas runner. This first one is done and the other 2 cut out and ready to go.And the last month of my Garden Party Down Under blocks all ready to start. These look to be the easiest of all the last 10 months behind me.Our neighbors next door gifted Zoey our little Yorkshire Terrier with a new bed. The boys next door, a Poodle and a Basset Hound, didn't like this comfy bed, so they gave it to Zoey. She loves this bed, it has become the perfect spot to lay in while sunbathing in front of the glass doors in our bedroom. This is truly the lap of luxury.
