Busy week

It has been a very busy week for me, or rather a week and a half now since it is already Thursday!

I started school last Monday a week ago at Hinds Community College. I am taking a drawing class and a design class, and they are both great classes. Megan is taking them with me, and we are having a blast together. We have been working on contour drawings in the drawing class for the past week, and I already have noticed a difference. Where before I saw simply a curved line, now I can see all the different directions the line or surface actually has.

I am taking a beginning quilting class at our new quilt shop, and it started last Thursday. It was a lot of fun also. We cut out our strips and started sewing them together on the first class. The second class is tonight, and we are supposed to learn how to put it together with the batting and the bottom, how to quilt it or tye it down, and how to bind it. Those are the things I really want to learn, so I need to finish piecing it together today so I can work on those things tonight.

And the best part of the week was on Saturday, when we got snow!! This was the first time we had any snow in about 7 or 8 years! Although it didn't stick, it was very exciting while it lasted. :o) I know, I know, I am a silly southerner.

Here is the pack out in the snow:

Snow on the husband

Snow on Honey Bear

Snow on Lacey

Snow on Flea

Notice, no snow on Evil Kitty Baby. He just thinks we are all silly to be out where that stuff can get on you. You just gotta love cats! :o)

Oh, how I wish I could go to a class like those you described! Nothing like that around here, sadly.=( Still, I should get some of that with my City & Guilds courses, when I get started on them.
