2 New classes I have started

Now you have to promise not to laugh but I have started 2 new classes this New Year the first one is a knitting class and I am hoping to lean how to do more than the knit and pearl stitch.  Our teacher actually started us out making a cable cast on and now we are into the next class which is following the is a pic so far

My next class is a drawing class and I really want to stop drawing stick people and learn to take it to another level.  Jackie is a wonderful teacher so here are a couple photos of our first class together.

In the beginning she had us draw an apple and cylinders so the first 2 are my drawings without any guidance and then the last 2 are done with Jackie teaching us perspective and shading with different marks and pencils..I think the second 2 are better and I had a wonderful time.  There are 4 of us in the class...2 of the ladies are much further advanced and then there is another friend of mine and me.
I will post updates as we go along...Thanks for taking a peek..

Wow I have not posted since the holiday

Ahh it is true it seems life was more simple back a few years ago.  It is not that I have not been in my sewing room at all just not as much as I would like to.  I hope you all have had a wonderful start to a great New Year  ahead and are looking forward to all the new creativity that is just waiting around the corner to be made.
As for me I am looking for more time in my sewing room and so far this year I have had more time which has been a good thing ,by more time I am meaning a few more days, which I am grateful for but as time goes on it might get better.  I am hopeful!  Here are a few photos of stuff that has been completed since I last posted...
I made this zipper pouch for a friend of mine who moved to FL in January and I added the map so she doesn't get lost when she comes to visit...

This one was made as a gift for the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild

And you cannot see this very well and I forgot to take a picture of it when I got the top finished.  This is the pic of the layout but  I will get a better one after it is quilted.  This is for my grandson Dayton..

And I have started 2 new classes this year so that is starting out good right?  I will be back with photos of "in the beginning" later today.
Thanks for being here.......
