I had so much I wanted to get done, a class to prepare for..... and bang- first I got sick with a cold. I lost a couple days of work.
Then our grandson got sick with the croup with bad cough, wheezing and the works.
All the while I was busy preparing for teaching the computer system "Side Saddle" that I use with my Nolting longarm set up.
And then.... the snows hit! First here at home....and I missed more work.
Then for our trip to Richfield, OH where I was to teach, the roads were not the best.
Then while we were in Ohio teaching - more snow.
Then the snow and ice were on the roads for our trip home! We did arrived safely and it felt so good to be home.
Teaching was a success and I really enjoyed meeting everyone and helping them learn how to use their Side Saddle systems to make beautiful quilts.
THEN -- MORE SNOW! And I missed more work.
So... now the snow has stopped. I managed to longarm 3 quilts are am now working on the bindings.
The joys of quilting.... see the end in sight.
......just in time to start a new quilt of course!
So now, with the temperatures warming up next week and rain instead of snow, I look forward to Spring.
I already have a few things on my calendar that y'all may be interested in:

For now.... time to hand sew the binding on a quilt and a hanging sleeve on another quilt...
Til next time.....
