Something done and learned something new
Sue Pawlowski from the Chicago suburbs. She was a hoot! She spoke about "A Quilter's Lifecycle". If you look at the picture above, try to guess what it is. It is her 'thread ball' that she has made over the years. She passed it around in this tub, and told us all to take a little bit of it to remind us to start a thread ball of our own. She even won a ribbon for this thread ball. Can you believe it??? She makes wonderful quilts. She also sells patterns. Check out her site (above).
Lastly, they always say that busy people get more things done. This week I think it is true. I started 2 new part time jobs 3 weeks ago. One is volunteer for my church (office work), and the other is just up the street, also doing office work. I started both jobs on the same day. Two new jobs, one day, two different computer systems. Can you say CRAZY!!! Well, this week, I've worked both jobs, attended two quilt guilds, Quilts of Valor sew-in on Tuesday and my regular Thursday sew-in. I finished one set of Santa blocks and learned to make yo-yo's. Not bad. Did you do anything this week?
