Day 2 of school


Day 2 of class and I managed to sit still all day.

Learning new techniques, sharing ideas in new genres is really exciting, and the possibilities of the techniques I'm learning right now are endless.

Being a student rather than a teacher is a little difficult……I had to fight the urge to walk around and talk to everyone in class today.

I walk and talk constantly in class… I never sit down….one on one is important to me as a Teacher and  I have a computer in my head that knows  just what stage each student is at…..!!!!

 "NO Pam this is not your class"   chill out girl.

I must admit, I've only studied academically over the past years not technically.

I also admit, that I'm not a good student.!!! I've never been a good student….

I escaped from school almost every day when I was young. Mum would get home from taking us to the bus and she would find me waiting for her !!!!!

I was pathetically shy and I missed a lot of school in my primary years. My parents weren't real interested and I never ever told them I came dux of the school. It was the way it was in the 50's and 60's.

    Hang in there, Lady! It IS tough to be the student when you have been the teacher for so long. I taught school for 30 years and always had a hard time when I had to sit through new classes to upgrade my skills. I found myself getting up and walking around anyway just because it was too hard to sit. (Made me feel sorry for and empathize with my hyper-active students! :->)
    It looks like a great class in terms of “pushing the boundaries” and finding new techniques. Enjoy yourself!

    What a marvelous story. It brought tears to my eyes. I only live about an hour away from the quilt museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, and will look forward to seeing your quilt when it’s ready for viewing. Thanks for sharing.

    Can’t wait to take your class at the Houston Quilt Festival.

    We are about the same age and like you, I was/am shy. My Grandmother was staying with us when my little sister arrived. Gram and my brother would drive me to school. Convinced that they were going to do something fun without me, my 6 year old legs moved quickly through the short cut home, to wait until they arrived back home after running errands. She always took me back, sigh. I was so inspired by your class work, I ordered Effie’s book last night. Wishing you a good night’s sleep and a beautiful weekend.
