Wow, that's wild. I hate paper piecing too. I don't get it. I don't know what hand piecing means--what is that? I want to try origami. I'd like to take a class on dying. I meant to recently, and then I forgot about the class. Hopefully they'll over it again. I someday want to go to the big shows in Lancaster and Houston.

Oops, I meant to say 'offer'. I wish blogger had an edit button.

Barb said...

Oops again. I meant Paducah. You mentioned Lancaster and it stuck in my mind. Geesh, sorry.

Hey, You didn't follow the rules!! and I am glad. I think the explanations make it much more interesting and gives us a chance to get to know you better. Maybe I should go back and edit my entry with explanations. hmmm.
P.S. I notice you didn't check off "Have more finished quilts than UFOs."
