Lots of surprises last week, and not all of them pleasant. Austin got snow, which is about as surprising as it gets around here. I think the last time we had snow stick was 10 years ago. It was falling fast and hard, but it was clumping into ice when it hit the ground. The ground was well above freezing, and this morning, it's all gone.
Yesterday, I took the Tile Tango class by Becky Goldsmith as part of a guild class. I'll be real honest, I was not sure how it was going to go and had told Rob that I wasn't sure how long I'd stay. It wasn't what I've come to think of as a traditional zoom class. The class was pre-recorded, and we would meet up as a group about every hour, then go watch a section of video, then get back together. As we learned to do, we did, so when the video was cutaway appliqué, I appliqued my cutaway stem. And, when it was outer points, I did one of the flower petals. And, the leaves were done during the video about inner and outer curves.
The class actually started last week. There were more than two hours of pre-work, and yes, I whined about spending all my free time last week preparing for class, including picking fabric (ugh, it took so long to pick such a small amount of fabric and I still didn't make very good choices). Maybe if I'd done less grumbling and more applying myself to it, it would have been a more cheerful block.
