I spent most of yesterday printing my patterns for the class members. This took way longer than I anticipated and it was a little crazy before dinner last night. (I was trying to keep the patterns cheap for class members so I printed them at home on my printer vs at Staples, cheaper but time consuming :) It probably didn't help that I had to spend the first few hours of the morning writing the end of the pattern. Ya, writing the actual pattern is not so much fun, so I tend to procrastinate that part. What ya gonna do :) I have to admit though, it looks cool to see a huge pile of them :) (I will be uploading these patterns in the next few days, stay tuned ;)
Last night before going to bed I made a big pile on my sewing room floor of everything I could possibly think of that I would need for my class. I have my quilts set to display at the front of the class.
I have my samples all put together and ready to teach with. Shout out - Thanks again Mom for helping me with these. She is making a Braided Irish Chain so I wouldn't end up with a bunch of widow blocks, and is letting me use her fabric and pieces for the samples. Isn't she the greatest!!
And then I just started to add to the pile. I threw in anything that I thought would aid in the class, mostly in case someone forgot something. Irons and boards, since that always seems to be the hold up when people are sewing in large numbers. My cutting mat, rulers, and rotary cutter. And then a bag full of extra seam rippers, scissors, thread, pins, and extension cords.
