What a week.....

It was quite a week.....busy, and full of ups and downs. I did a LOT of babysitting, taught one of my marathon twelve hour classes and came down with a NASTY bout of the flu.

Take my advice....get that flu shot. And I will share a few pictures of the better part of my week!!!!

Above is a picture of Laurie, who we affectionately nicknamed "Fast Laurie". She gets more projects completed than is humanly possible...and she is always a huge inspiration for me.

Nancy is one of my brand new students and bravely signed up for our all day fun. She is doing great....but you can see that by her beautiful table-runner.

Kathy is my dear friend and I didn't realize she had never come to an all day class. I think we have her convinced she needs to do this again!!!

Tiffany has a darling company she created with her daughter. It is called "Breakfast for Dinner". I love that!!! I love the cute hats she makes too. I wish her LOTS of success!!!

I did a little demo for the girls on a simple and fun apron....will make great gifts for Christmas. Tiffany made a couple and they were just adorable.

Lisa always creates wonderful art quilts based on blocks she has her family and closest friends make when they go to camp. What a great memory....what a great quilt.

Rose continued working on her quilt...and it is finished!!! Quite an accomplishment with LOTS of points to match ( oh my).

Sharon makes the cutest and sweetest baby quilts. She even shared her minkie scraps with me....thinking they will become cute and soft baby blocks!!!

Chris is working on the most fun project....taking apart her son's baby quilt and recreating the salvageable blocks into a new project. How cute!!!!

.....and speaking of babies ( and CUTE) here is our "growing much to fast" Clare in her pumpkin hat that my Mom made.
Keeping fingers crossed that the week ahead will be a better one.....with no more flu germs to take me down. Trust me on this one....get that shot!!!!

So sorry you had the flu, Anne.
Loved seeing all your students projects. Really inspired me to. I really want to take a class too. Looks like so much fun...twelve hours of uninterupted sewing...heaven.
Speaking of heaven...Clare is so cute in her pumpkin hat. An angel for sure. Yes, they grow up way to fast.
Feel better, my friend.

Love the pumpkin hat! Too cute. I have been sick too, starting with the flu and morphing into a nasty cold. Hope this is it for the winter...

I hope you feel better--There is a lot of the "crude" in Northern Wisconsin also. Flu shots are at school next Tuesday. What a great group of gals to work with and spend time sewing and relaxing.
