This group is good for what ails me!
You know, when you are hopped up on meds – decongestants, antibiotics, and all manner of loopy making concoctions, perfection is the one thing we don’t need to deal with!
How perfect that these two days at Country Crossroads Quilt Shop would be all about improvisational piecing and working with crumbs, scraps and strips?
And a whole lot of sharing going on!
Shop owners Lynn and Bob have been in Orange Park for eons. If you are in the area, you MUST make a visit – you will find yourself right at home and feel like family.
The class room fit a comfortable 16 of us plus some helper angels and we had a great day.
And I thank my students for being patient with my lack of voice!
After all, crumb piecing is best learned by watching, not by listening anyhow….and I had a great group of waters, who were ready to become do-ers!

The left side, not to be out done, holding them high!
Busy as little bees, they all are!
Basic crumb units, maverick stars, wonky hearts, and an intro to pieced letters are the gateway to many many fun projects to come.
Happy Crabbies in Florida!
Check out all of the fun happening in here!
My thanks to shop owner Lynn for booking this 4 years ago!
I hope it won’t be another 4 years until we can do it again.

Steroids 15 hours later: I forgot how steroids can keep you awake at night. And they do funny things to your tummy…..like – how did I get so bloated so quickly???!? I feel like I need to be wearing a moomoo.
I don’t care –the ear pressure is much less, and I can actually tell a difference over night. Let’s hope that this continues.
It’s another Crumbs, Crumbs, Crumbs workshop today –it will be easy and fun. Even my voice feels like it is on the verge of coming back and that is a good thing.
Tomorrow is completely a rest day as we travel down to Camp Weed in Live Oak, Florida where I will be teaching at a retreat for the Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild. I just know it will be a good and easy time, no stress, loads of rest, and this ear will have a chance to heal before I have to fly home the night of the 11th.
It’s all good. I can’t fly home with it this bulging, so it is a good thing that I just take it as easy as I can, rest when I can, and allow the meds to do their thing so I can fly home when I am scheduled to.
Thanks for all the well wishes, keep that positive quilt energy coming my way!
