Sunday morning I got up early and drove the 2 1/2 hours to Traverse City to attend Bonnie Hunter's Smith Mountain Morning Workshop. If you ever have a chance to attend one of her workshops please do! I have been sewing and quilting for about 20 years now, and I still learned so much from her. She is a down to earth kind of gal, and makes everyone feel comfortable and unafraid to ask even the "stupid" questions.
There were 15 - 20 minute teaching sessions and then we were sent back to our machine to work on that segment of the block. She did a fabulous job coming around the room checking to see if we had questions or problems, but didn't hover over us all the time. I appreciated that greatly. Nothing makes me more nervous than someone peering over my shoulder to see how I'm doing.
Silly as it was, I was a little shy about asking for a photo with Bonnie! These are the girls I attended the workshop along with Bonnie. Left to right: Jean, Betty, Bonnie Hunter, myself, and Cathy
I finished these blocks during the workshop and feel confident in using the rulers and techniques Bonnie taught us. I am anxious for Saturday to arrive so that I can sew all day long!
And just because I'm so proud of my 6'3" and 6'5" boys, I'll leave off this post with two pics from their District win. I love the quote, "Most people wait all their lives to meet their favorite players. I'm raising mine." I am also proud of the choices they are making off the court.
