Another Saturday, trying to wrap my head around the fact that tomorrow is Sunday and people will expect to hear something resembling Gospel from me. Groceries have been bought and put away, laundry boxes are humming, and it's only mid-morning. Panic can wait until after lunch.

Still haven't unpacked the haul I brought back from my pilgrimage to Mary Jo's. At the very least there's a new quilting hoop there that needs testing, and lots of pretty fabrics to pat again as I sort them into their bins.

I signed up for Linda Schmidt's "Elements in Fabric" class at Quilt University again. I tried it once before and found it too intimidating. But I'm itching to do something different, and this looks like a good place to explore. I've got most of the supplies - that was part of the intimidation before. And I'm thinking about paraments and stoles and how the "elements" might get worked into liturgical symbols. That makes the class more about exploration than about copying Linda's designs, beautiful though they might be.

I've also been following a really cool blog There's a piece of this called "100 Details for 100 days" that is showing the most beautiful embellishments for crazy quilts that you ever want to see. Again, making my fingers itch. So there may be some new things coming out of the studio before the end of the year.
