One day I'm going to be Brave and 

tackle my 2 fabric closets..  this task isn't for the faint at heart..  I think if it was all refolded and stacked properly it would be easier to work with and cause me less stress EVERY time I look in it.

Gosh GG, wish I lived close to you, I would love to help you with that project .

one day I'm going to be Brave and..

Contact the homeschool group in town and start going to their park days. I'm pretty shy and it's so hard for me to reach out to people.

Is N Cal too far ?  ;)  Wish you lived closer too!

Keep a smile in your heart :) Dorian

Oh GG I think we should pick a day and time, put our phones on speaker and work together on our closets!

Sheriff I would LOVE to read your blog!

Dorian, I had that struggle when homeschooling too.  I don't homeschool and I am still shy, but getting better about pushing myself past my comfort zone.  Maybe just figure out one of the park days you want to go to... show up with your kids and see what happens :)

I have two.  One day I'm going to be brave and work on Dear Jane project in my closet.

One day I also want to start Pythagoras' Lute. It's PP, I have the pattern, just have to figure out how the pieces go together so I can label properly on the paper.

Thanks Chelle. You can do it!! The PP that is, and the Dear Jane too. With PP, if the instructions are very clear and easy to read, then it's a breeze, just take it one step at a time. And pretty soon it will become less confusing. Good luck!

Keep a smile in your heart :) Dorian

I love doing PP, its just this particular pattern flusters me just looking at the pieces.  Oh a Judy N. quilt would be amazing!  May add that to my list lol

Sheila, I think mine is the same.  I started one 3-4 years ago, and it's waiting for me.  i have another of her patterns and the fabrics I need, but never started it.  I do so want to get them going.  The whole idea of them intimidates me, but at the same time, I really want to do at least one of her designs.

Marg, If I may offer a suggestion of starting with something SMALL.  Just to make sure it's something you enjoy and feel satisfied with your work. :)

hugs, gg

Please don't wait!! Jump in, follow the instructions step-by-step and you'll find out how fun Judy's patterns are! I've done ~5 so far and have enjoyed the process immensely.

To add to this, you could do a hexie ornament (I see some free instructions when I googled it).  It would be a small project that you can display and give you a chance to see if you want to do something bigger.

Sharon, We are lucky enough to have 2 certified teachers at our LQS.  I can never line up a class along with the right days that I am working.  She has those snowflake placemats, and I think that is what I want to start with.   Eventually.   Everyones are soo beautiful!

Sheila, I wish we had a certified instructor here.  I took a class with one who came to a quilt shop (since gone out of business) and did enjoy it.  I'll have to check out the snowflake placemats.  Haven't seen them.

Go for it Veronica!! Your quilts are so nice. I know the thought of being judged is scary, but if you tell yourself the judging doesn't matter, you are doing it for fun... well, than that just might work .
