It looks like being a very positive and productive year, lots of quilters are talking about “focus”, “just get it done” and other such uplifting things. Here at C&B Enterprises we have LOTS of plans for 2011 and, between us, we’ve made a pretty good start. Chris has managed to re-enter her sewing room (you will remember that she was having difficulties with the amount of stuff in it not matching the amount of space in it) and has whipped up yet another quilt top. She is quilting this even as we write (which explains a lot) so pictures were unavailable at the time of going to press. In the sorting out phase Chris made various heaps of tops to quilt, projects to finish – you know the sort of thing
above are just the quilt tops, there’s a second heap of projects/blocks/bits waiting for some attention
and has made a non-resolution that she should finish up a few of them before the year is out. Despite some fairly persistent nagging she has resolutely refused to provide an actual count of just how many tops and projects there are, which was probably quite a smart move.
Barbara’s January list is made – our first Saturday class is “Your starter for Nine” and the sample and worksheet for this is top of her list – here’s the starting block and some of the work in progress
Our evening classes also start this month so there’s plenty of preparation to be done for these as well. Barbara has been busy wielding the spray starch and rotary cutter during her retreats from the seasonal festivities. Without giving too much away, this may provide a clue as to the topic for the first class
We’re off to have our first
coffee business meeting of the New Year tomorrow – happy quilting to all!
