Had A Lovely Time Teaching In Delafield Wisconsin!

Good Morning Everyone!  I had an absolutely wonderful time yesterday with my Crazy Quilt class up in Delafield, Wisconsin!  Everyone was wonderful and I must say, I so much enjoyed sharing my Waste Canvas techniques and CQ tips!  I truly hope that my students enjoyed the class as much as I did!

I confess, I wasn't sure I would enjoy teaching.  Among other disorders, I have Social Anxiety Disorder and I can see now where it's gotten in my way all my life.  I've always avoided situations of being in the "limelight" so to speak.  Everyone was so nice and wonderful and it was such a great experience for teaching the first time that I'm sure I would enjoy doing it again! 


If anyone has a group of Crazy Quilters or stitchers who would like to learn my techniques, please email me!  I live in the Northern Illinois - Southern Wisconsin area.  I don't travel much but I would certainly be willing (twist my arm) to teach up in Galena Illinois as well.  Just let me know and we'll put a class together.
 I'd like to take a moment to say thank you to my sweet cousin Kim who not only drove (I don't drive too far myself) but also helped me so much to stay on track.  Thank you Sweetie!!!

If you were one of my students yesterday, here is the recipe for the cookies I brought!

In other news, I added a few new things to our Boutique!  Mom did 2 of her Traditional Crazy Quilt Door Pillows:

I also added a few more Greeting Cards to the shop:

Well, that's my news for today everyone!  I need to relax and do some stitching today but I may try to add a few cards to the shop later.  We're taking mom to a couple of Flea Markets tomorrow.  If I find some great junk, I'll share photos!!!

I didn't know there was such a thing as SAD until you mentioned it in your post. To think that what I have suffered with all these years actually has a name is mind boggling. I totally applaud you for teaching your class...well done:)

Dear Pam, I am so proud of you! I know how hard it was for you to actually get out and teach, and it’s wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed it! You were in my thoughts. Big hugs, Cathy (BTW, all your and Mom’s goodies are gorgeous!)

We loved having your Pam...and I just saw that JoAnne fabrics has 8.5 waste canvas on sale for 30% off a 5 yard piece. I just may have to go for it!

Sounds like you had a great time teaching (I knew you would). I've taught a couple of times and must admit I was scared out of my mind each time, but then was happily surprised that it went well and I ended up having fun.

Great class...I really enjoyed:) Remember I have a connection in Galena we could make that work yet. I may just run into you in Elkhorn that is one of my stopping grounds. Have an awesome day!
