A quick post

Here is a update. Last Thursday we had another quilt class.

Marja's feathered star quilt top is finished. At least that is what we thought. Her sister noticed a mistakes. Can you see it?

She has decided to undo a small part of the center block. This is such a difficult pattern! 'This is why I've decided not to make 9 blocks but 6. This is how it will hopefully turn out. I like this design / pattern.

Using these blocks. The fourth is nearly done.

Concentration!! Some of the quilters are busy with their Christmas project.

The rest of the group, doing their thing.

More show and tell: the black & white feathered star quilt top. Mirjam has nearly finished the top. If I remember correctly another border will be added. Then it can be finally sandwiched.

Frequency will be less next couple of weeks!!

Most have noticed that I haven't been blogging much. Why? Because I haven't been quilting much. Why? Because I'm doing an NLP training. I must say this training is giving me some new insights. I'm loving it. Some are maybe thinking now, what is NLP? Well go and Google and find out. I dare you!

NLP is giving me a whole new perspective. It is a toolkit for personal and organizational change. This course is also helping me focus on what I find important. I've decided to use my time for other things the next couple of weeks.

I want to read certain books, but I'm letting myself be distracted by things like blogging, playing FarmVille, noise, housekeeping and many other things.

Yes, I've decided not to blog as frequently the next couple of weeks. If you miss me, you will know I'll be sitting in this chair. IMG_4050I've created my own little quiet space. I'll be reading those books I've wanted to read for some time. I'll try to keep up with all your blogs and will post something when I make a little more progress on my quilting. But don't expect too much from me. I'll be quiet till after Christmas break.

Sad

Just found out that Mark Lipinski is no longer connected with Quilter's Home magazine. Read more here. I loved this magazine. Couldn't wait to receive the next issue. I loved his style.

Another good thing has come to an end.  I'll have to read his blog from now on.
