Learning New Things

Since my first visit to her blog,
I was enamoured.
In love with,
 taken with,
charmed by,
fascinated by,
 entranced by ,
fond of, 
enchanted by,
 captivated by,
 enthralled by,
 smitten with,
 besotted with
Karen Ruane's
beautiful whitecloth work.

When I read she would be offering a class,
I was delighted!
When I was making out my list for Santa,
all I asked for was Karen's class.
The class has begun and
I am learning new things!

I first learned to create
 the Rouleau Loops
and Prairie Points.
(Very dark here today, so my
white cloth is photographing
You can see the Prairie Points here:
The Rouleau Loops  here:
Karen has taken so much time and effort
to make the class easy to follow and
I had forgotten some of the tips and
techniques she had shared with
us, on one of the videos.
If, I had been in a classroom situation,
I would have had to rely on memory
or notes to complete the task.
Not with this class, at 11:30
last night I was rewatching the
video to refresh my memory.

You know,
 I love crazy quilting,
the skills I learn
in this class will work for
crazy quilting as well.

Love to all,

These look great Deb. I agree, please keep us updated. I may make a 'small list' for Santa next Christmas. I can't wait to see how you use your new found skills in CQ.

I am REALLY excited to see you are taking this class Deb. I wanted to but have already signed up for several and felt it would be too much at this time. So for now, I'll look forward to seeing your progress. Post LOTS of photos!
