Excuses, excuses…

But with a good reason!

Craftsy had all their classes running for free all day today!  There were a few I have been wanting to see but couldn’t spend the money on them and, well,

I just couldn’t pass up free now could I?

Hope you will forgive me.  My new post will be published tomorrow!

      Which classes? I watched these:
      >>>Improvisational Piecing, Modern Design
      with Jacquie Gering I really enjoy her classes!
      AND
      >>>Machine Quilting in Sections: Strategies for Any Quilt with Marti Michell. I have read how you do it on your blog and now the class has cemented the technique for me. I look forward to trying it now. 🙂

        I watched Heritage Hand Quilting with Andi Pereja, and part of Pixelated Quilts with Caro Sheridan. I find it very hard to know in advance whether I’ll find a course useful, so much seems to be introduction, tools and things I’m not very interested in, and the actual meat of the business is quite a short segment in the middle. So these freebies were a great way to sample things I’m interested in.

          True! I watched a real dud yesterday, and I actually love the man’s quilting work and his quilt tour videos on Youtube. However, he is not teacher material.

            I so agree. I often have high hopes, but so many video tutorials are just plain dull, with monotonous voices trotting out things I know like the back of my own hand as if they were precious gems of wisdom. I must be easily annoyed, I suppose!

          • Lynda says:

            LOL, you are not easily annoyed, you just have more skill on the back of your hand than most who watch these videos. Like the quilt as you go one I watched for instance. I knew much of what she had to teach because I picked it up from you. However, there were a few more techniques that she had in her video that helped to round out my gleaned knowledge… But personality is a plus in these vids. She was just a bit too saccharine for me.

            Don’t you find they can be an unfortunate i mix of wooden and wordy? I often feel like saying “Just show me the technique/process/ (insert relevant issue), and stop yacking!”

So how about that? Go on; say something!
