I Single-Handedly Launched a Class!

I'm absolutely in love with this quilt and this class:  "How Do I Quilt This? -- Big Cheese Cutie Quilt"

I filmed this class a few weeks ago and was tickled to share my tips for meandering, my favorite scroll feather, and the basics of machine quilting using rulers.  I love the finished quilt and may have to keep it forever.

So why was there a lag between filming the class and sharing it with you?  Well, I took a break.

No, really;  I took a 10-day break from life.  I took time off because I fell out of bed and broke my collarbone.*

I'm living life one-handed for a while so everything I do is single-handed.  For instance, "I single-handedly put on shoes this morning!"

Happily, I'm not in much pain (if I don't move) and I'm seeing improvement.  I'm hopeful that by the end of the year this will be a memory -- a randomly bizarre and frustrating memory.

Enough of the collarbone!  Back to the class.

Check out the class.  I single-handedly finished editing it last night and really love the content and love that I can bring the class to you for $5.

* I try to convince folks that I broke my collarbone by heroically rescuing a small child from oncoming traffic, but am given that "Really?" look.  No really, I rolled out of bed and woke up on the floor with a broken collar bone.  I'm an extreme sleeper, apparently.

That is a gorgeous quilt! Ouch! I am glad your broken collarbone isn't painful and hope it is healing quickly.

In June, I thought I could fly. In reality, I had to jump from a sitting position on a truck's tail gate. It was higher than I thought. Felt and heard a snap. Cracked the tibia behind the kneecap. 8 weeks of no weight on that leg. I have 2 more weeks to go. I am so so tired of crutches. Get well soon!

I will try to take the class soon. It is beautiful. So sorry to hear about your collarbone. Are people teasing you that you need a guard rail on your bed?

Ouch! A friend of mine did horse eventing - she broke her collar bone multiple times - until the doctors said NO MORE! Soooo when are you getting a bubble wrap bedside rug? ;)
