Stitch and Rip...

Oh I won't be, I have a busy day planned out ahead of me, but I seriously would love to kick back and do it.
My quilting class last night was so fun, we really spent some quality time on each quilt, chatting and working together. V's two quilts are finally finished and next week I will help her start to tie each one. I love that they all picked a different way to finish them. It is wonderful to watch all the different personal choices in layout, sewing and quilting create such different quilts.

I did a bit of ironing on my blocks, but the needle never touched the fabric. It was tough not to, but when I am leading the class I rarely stay still for a few minutes.
I have found I dearly look forward to quilting with the group on Tuesday's. I hope each will continue to come. When I started the quilting group, it was to raise revenue, my "goal" was to increase the revenue column on my end of months doing something I love. It was a combination of need meeting want and a hope.
Now... I can tell you if our group stops coming I am going to miss it dreadfully! I enjoy chatting with them, sharing stories of quilts in our families past and present. I learn so much each week. I feel like part of a community, I hope we can grow it. Isn't it considered magic when you can combine work and passions? I was exhausted by the afternoon yesterday, by class time I was excited and full of energy.
I wonder if today will have magic? For now I need to get ready, this storm means we will have to leave a bit earlier for work.
