Happy New Year!
Well, I am finally back up and running! Even I had to go back and look at my last post date! That October storm knocked us into November and then December before we had everything fixed. It feels so good to be back with all of my blogging friends--thank you so much for sticking by me and thank you so much for all of your comments I was just able to publish!
Quick Storm Information:
This is what we ended up with:
You can tell by the snow on our deck, grill and shed that it was one large snowstorm! Then we had no power for seven days. Follow that with no cable and when we finally got cable back only to have the modem go down! We ended up getting a new modem, which had to be sent back, and finally were up and working around Christmas. I was keeping up to date from my iPad, but couldn't post any pictures. Then the holidays were busy, top that with my daughter having all four widom teeth removed on December 22 and you can tell just how busy we have been. We did have storm damage to clean also--trees, mailbox etc. All that is behind us now! As a matter of fact, we haven't had any snow since that storm and it looks like a clear week this week too! That will be fine with me--mid January and no snow and not ba temperatures either!
On the Quilting front: I want to devote an entire post to The Ghastlies, and Quiltie swapping so they will each have their own day this week.
Today, I am going to post the pictures of my most recent class. I am doing this now because my teacher and two other bloggers have posted today, so I am going to keep with that theme!
My New Year's resolution was to learn something new each month all year long. I have always wanted to do a Judy Niemeyer pattern and actually have bought a couple. Then I looked at the directions, folded it back up and put it away. That is until Jackie of Canton Village Quilt Works decided to teach a class and I knew I had to sign up! Jackie is becoming a certified Niemeyer teacher and has visited with Judy Niemeyer as her blog will tell you. Well, I was right--great class, excellent teacher! She broke down the directions, we all were able to make great strides, understand completely and come home and continue on our own successfully! Go to Jackie's blog to see all of the students' progress, here is mine:
It is great to be back, take care until tomorrow with warm quilt wishes...
