Today, I am going to be a student again. This is the preparation for a "Needleturn Applique" class I'm taking with Kathryn Greenwold at the Joyful Quilter in Glenville, NY.
I'm a bit nervous as the only handwork I've ever done is binding a quilt. So, here I go....over prepared, as is my personality, and with very little expectations of my own skills in this area. It will be a true day of discovery.
