Pattern making

Last week, we had Clarita show us how o read a pattern and how to make it! It was very interested and as you can see from our faces, we were very concentrated! We didn't finish it so we will be continuing this coming Sunday.

But that wasn't all! Little John, Teri's son, was working in his quilt! Yes! Unbelievably this little boy is hand quilting a beautiful quilt that he has been working on since he was 7. You see! Not only a child but also a male can do this!

There was also a little bit of tatting. You can see the little pieces flowing out of my hands, still as addictive as 2 weeks ago. Today I got black thread to make my imagination go crazy with all this tatting :) Thanks Clarita for sharing such precious knowledge!

Tatting...what a difficult and challenging this to learn! but once ge got it! it is so simple! Just one type of knot and two steps to it. You just have to have all your fingers working with you synchronized and once in a while you need to take a deep breath.

It was so much fun, and I am addicted to it! I do it every single minute that I am waiting on something since it's so little and I can carry it in my purse!

Clarita was a great teacher! And she left pattern reading and making for next week, which is good because it is too much information all at once and I would really like to learn both.
Thank you so much! We will proudly pass this tradition along to more people who might enjoy it!
Thank you so much Clarita!!

All of us

Zippered pouch workshop!

After a long time holding my promises up in the air, finally I got to teach my "students" how to make something with a zipper. Yes! We finally had a zippered pouch workshop and I was overwhelmed by the large number of hard working and crafty students!
It was so much fun and the bet thing was that we finished our projects! Our pouches were finished by the end of the afternoon and everyone went home with their little trophy...YES!
The best thing is the students, the companionship, the friendship and the surprise visits!
Thank you all for coming and I hope you can make many more in the future!!!

Here are some shots of our busy afternoon. Enjoy!
