Precisely what I thought would happen. I am semi-addicted to cutting geometric fabric shapes and sewing them together. I call it pseudo-quilting because a) most online sources are pretty damn vague with no pictures, so I'm sure there's something I'm doing wrong with the piecing and b) I'm not doing any batting and bottom piecing, just pretty little top pieces that are not quilts but small projects.

Like this wall-hanging that will have to be sideways because blogger does not rotate pictures:

And this decidedly not-a-square that is my first piece ever.

And my kitchen counter currently looks like this:

Eventually I intend to make a real quilt, but for now I'd rather practice on small stuff than have a half-assed giant project.

On another note, as I was looking for a random online class to take this summer so I can finish school in a year and a half if need be (in case Alex gets stationed somewhere good that I want to move to. Like Hawaii. Or Italy. Or anywhere not on the continental United States).

Anywho, I found a theatre class called "Sex, Drugs, and the Rock and Roll Musical." And it's taught by a man named James Brown. You can bet I signed up for it right then and there.

  1. I can't sew or knit to save my life. My grandma has tried teaching me since I was little. I'm a lost cause. So I've got much admiration and respect for those who can!

    Sweet class. Can't wait to hear about it!
