I had a looooong day! I've been up since 4 AM because a "staaaarving" kitty woke me up. After that I just couldn't go back to sleep. I was out all day and only got home around 6:30.
After 8 I went to my sewing room, watched Game of Thrones and The Recruit and I was cutting out the pieces needed for the next block for my Craftsy BOM February block. It came out pretty nice, I only had to rip one seam that I wasn't satisfied with, but had to do that one 3x :) My obsessive nature...my points just HAVE to match. Period. :)

I am going to a longarm quilting class with Debby Brown tomorrow to one of the quilt shops that are still in business in our area. My favorite one closed down unfortunately :( BUT! This shop (called the Quilt Basket) just started to rent their long arm machine for quilting. I would love to try one of my big quilts out on a longarm to see how they turn out. Now with the opportunity maybe I will :) I've been hunting places to rent a longarm for years and when I found a place where they did it by the time I had my quilt top together they closed down. My luck! Unfortunately we don't have room for a huge machine in our apartment so purchasing is out of the question.
I also signed up to Stitched in Color Rachel's hand stitching class which I'm pretty excited about. She has a $10 off discount if you register through May 16. I chose the premium class. I love hand stitching and used to embroider when I was a teenager, my Grandma still has my works with bleeding threads and all :) If you're interested in handwork I recommend to check it out!
That's it for now, I'm gonna go to have a rest and hope to not be woken at 4AM again... Seriously!!
Till we quilt again :)
