Sometimes I think about the impact of computers on our lives. Wow. Twenty-something years ago when working in corporate America, in a 75 story building, in the heart of a major city, our floor of maybe 50-60 people received "ONE" PC to share!!!
And one night I was in that building way past midnight ripping my hair out trying to load in data [to a flawed program] for a meeting the next day. For a client. Because my boss said so. We were going to wow them with our advanced technological abilities....NOT. Do you know how creepy it is to be in a skyscraper, in the middle of the night, in a huge city? Really creepy...especially for this scaredy cat!
If you had told me way back then that someday I would ENJOY being on the computer and even taking online classes...
Fast forward to today: now I'd believe you. While my first attempts are fairly simple compared to how elaborate you can go, I am thoroughly loving stitching away in the evening hours on these two little pieces.
Specifics: Jude Hill's Cloth to Cloth: The Basics of Quilt Weaving online class.
First read about it here.
Of course, back then I never thought I'd spend time wiring vintage buttons together either. But I do that too...
or when things aren't going right at all,
Christy Tomlinson's She-Art class...the second round which will launch on April 11th. Thank you Cherie for sharing about this class so beautifully in your own creations! Check out her recent posts and be wowed!
And very soon I will be sharing with you the YUMMY package that came my way from Cherie. Oh my. Lucky little me!
Last but not least, another class that is in the works is another journaling class by Mary Ann Moss. I am so taking that class! Meanwhile I am in love with her posts from Paris...it is a city that I so long to return to for a visit. One of my most favorite trips ever...
So wherever life finds you today...and esp. if you're in the heat of one of life's battle...just remember, tomorrow is full of NEW possibilities.
