Murfee rides again!!! He's up to his old tricks, this time including me in the mix. There I was, minding my own business, walking out to feed and water the horse, when, out of nowhere and coming up behind me came Murfee. At full Speed. At the back of my legs. Not intending to plow me down, I think, but doing just that anyway. Now, I wouldn't mind being swept off my feet, but to do so literally is not a good thing. Especially when it's Murfee doing the sweeping. My feet were knocked out and I fell like a piece of lumber straight onto my hip/side/shoulder/hand as Murfee raced partially over and right past me. As I'm trying to breathe again, assess any damages, unscramble my eyes and brain, the boy comes back, looks down at me as if to say "Hey! What are you doing down there???" Like I chose to be there!!! I start to slowly curl myself up on the gravel walkway, picking pieces out of my hand and elbow, hoping that nothing was damaged so I could try to get up , but with two knee replacements, it's kinda hard to get up without kneeling on the gravel, embedding more rocks into my very flesh. It wasn't pretty, but I did get up and decided that nothing was broken since my hip and leg still moved. And Murfee's still standing there, now running circles around me, never knowing how many ways I was contemplating getting even with him!
But all's well that ends well, I guess, and I'm none the worse for wear, although my hip and arm are very colorful right now, Murfee is just fine, and we're moving forward. Straight into another Kimberbell Kamp 4 day event. This time, we're doing the Main Street Celebration Bench Pillow
, complete with colorful lights resembling exploding fireworks. It's really cute and will be fun to do, as are all things Kimberbell. As an FYI, Andi's Free Motion Quilting Class
will still go on, since that class is mainly at the longarm machines. And the repetition class will also be held on Sat., so attend which one you want since the material covered is the same.
Monday, 6-21, the OESD Embroidery
class will focus on creating a patch. It's $10 and from 9:30-10:30. The Rulers Can Quilt
class for beginners will be held on Tuesday, followed by the class for more advanced ruler quilters on Wed.
Thursday, 6-24 will be the Intro class for Angle Play
with Andi. If you're an angle play
beginner, Andi will let you use her rulers the first class so you can know that you like the process before buying the ruler assortment for the class. There are so many sizes and shapes available....and that tells you that there are many many quilt possibilities! Expand your mind and your talents! Bonus: Andi will be supplying the pattern "Meteor" with this class!!!
