Today should be a Farm Girl Friday day but, I haven't got any new farm girl blocks to show you! I have been busy working on other projects this week, so I am hoping that I will get caught up with the week nine Farm Girl Vintage blocks over the next week. I have been telling myself that I am ahead of the SAL anyway as the week nine blocks haven't appeared on Lori's blog yet and that means I have all of this coming week to make them!
So, what have I been working on this week instead? Well, I have signed up for two more Crazy Quilt Classes with Kathy Shaw. The classes are sections of the Intermediate Crazy Quilt Class. I have already completed section 101 which covers the design and construction of crazy quilt blocks. The two sections I am now participating in are 103 Embellishing with Threads and 107 Miniature Silk Ribbon Embroidery Flowers.
There is going to be a lot of stitching involved and I can't wait to get started!! So far this week I have just been preparing the base blocks for both sections and it has been fun!
I have also signed up for a new Craftsy class to try and improve my free motion quilting (FMQ) further. If you have been following my blog for some time, you will know that I took an online class with Craftsy last year to work on my FMQ. I made quite good progress but I would like to take it to the next level if that is possible. The new class is with Christina Cameli and is called Free Motion Quilting Essentials.
This week I have completed lesson one and I am pleased with my progress to date! I will be keeping track of my progress in an online diary page which you can find on the right hand sidebar of this blog. There are some photographs in there from last year's class, so I will be able to compare and see how I am getting on! Promise not to look too closely!
Hope you all have a fun weekend with lots of stitching!!
