Oh gosh! now I’m even 2 days behind….but I guess that leaves more to look forward to, right?!
First off, before the class pictures, I have to thank the San Diego Contingency, for having this BEAUTIFUL cake waiting for me when I entered my classroom on Friday! Yes world, I somehow woke up and found myself 49!!! Now lots of you might think I’m still a baby, but since my kids think 50 is “officially” old --- I’m kind of in panic mode here. How in the world did I get to 49 so QUICKLY!? I know I must have skipped a few years somewhere, and I’d like to go back and pick them up!
No, I’m really happy where I am. Life is good---quilters are FABULOUS and I am loving every day what I am doing!
I’m even loving sitting in the airport in Houston writing this post, enjoying my layover. It was a bit of an exciting flight, one of the passengers passed out about 15 minutes after leaving Ontario, California….and the crew was right there, well trained and taking care of the situation. It really makes you appreciate what skills lay beneath the surface. The passenger was fine, and we were met at the gate in Houston by the EMTs who took the passenger off the plane to have them evaluated. Traveling as much as I do, it’s nice to know that the training goes far beyond “would you like a beverage??”
Saturday’s class was Texas Braid! And we had such a great group, full to capacity at 26 students. I was tickled to find out that over 1/2 the class had waited up until just past midnight on the day that the classes were released just so they could get the classes they wanted, and most were sold out by the next morning! We are a bound and determined bunch!
The quilts were all beautiful, and you should have seen the assortment of fabrics!
I loved looking at how people had arranged their rectangles for easy access like this:
Doesn’t it just make you wanna sit right down and SEW?!?
So here are the rest of the photos I took in class that day!
What a great day it was! Thanks everyone for making Road such a wonderful place to teach!
My flight to Lafayette boards in 1/2 hour so I’m going to upload this quick and catch you later from Cajun Country!
