actually...should be titled what I have been up to...and since that means we are going to talk about me...well, there ya go.

Anywho.  I kind of mentioned in yesterday's post that I was hoping to share more about what I was up to on Monday.  Well...Guy and I completed our first 5k!

  We ran with quite a few folks:

In a tribute run for Boston.  Guy and I have been diligently working on our running for about 9-10 weeks now, and it was time for a full on 5k with others.  It was completely unofficial, but it meant so much to us to do it on Monday.  It was the right time and the right place.

And now on to what else I've been up to.  Well I told you last week that I had finally ventured on to Craftsy and was trying out the Mastering Foundation Paper Piecing course by Carol Doak...and let me just tell you, the course is FANTASTIC!  Here is what I made after a few short lessons:

All my points match!!!  The tips that Carol gives throughout are excellent and I'm feeling so much more comfortable with paper piecing.  I'm only halfway through the course, so I am very excited to get to the next lessons!  I'm also now seriously considering signing up for some other Craftsy classes, but haven't decided which ones yet.  Any Craftsy classes you might recommend???

So that's all for right now...have a Duck Dynasty season finale to watch with the family...then might get  a workout in (or might not) and then it's time for some sewing!  Later!


  1. Wow, gorgeous piecing! I've signed up for a couple, but haven't had a chance to do much with them. I might have to sign up for the Carol Doak class.

  2. Congrats on the 5K! That's awesome.


thank you for taking the time to comment!
