So last week I was shopping in the App Store where I found this one called Craftsy. It is free and I'm all about "free." (Mostly free...there are things for purchase.) The premise is that one can take classes so I signed right up for "Craftsy Block of the Month" with Amy. She also blogs at Stitchery Dickory Dock. Isn't that a cute blog name? Anyway, imagine my surprise to visit there today to find that Mr. Stichery Dickory Dock was working on a quilt! Kinda fun.
What I have really appreciated about Amy is that her methods are simpler than some others. She showed me how to join binding in an easy way. I mean, I was getting ready to spend $10 on a binding tool and now I don't have to. Yay!
November was an ambitious month!
The finished project was a sampler of sorts...many different blocks and many techniques taught. It really was a lot of fun!
Of course, much of the joy of all this is so I don't have to actually make a quilt. Don't gasp. I have discovered that, simply by watching, I don't have to do a thing. I warned you that I was in slug mode.
It works for other things, too: I pin, therefore, I am.
Hopefully, I'll return to the land of doing soon. You know, beyond making meals, doing laundry, etc. I used to think that because my home was neat and tidy that I had "done" something. Now I realize that there's a big divide between really doing something and thinking that one has.
Oh! Wait! I did make my own quilt block in Photoscape.
Nah, that doesn't count.
I watched the snowball fight.

Am I going to have to learn how to make mittens?
