Would've, could've, should've

Recent postings shared what I learned from my experience last fall at Nancy Crow's Strip Piecing I & II, a one-week workshop at the Crow Barn in Baltimore Ohio. My recommendations regarding fabric and supplies only apply to that workshop 'cuz that's the only one I've been to so far.

But soon I'll have another Nancy Crow workshop experience to relate. I'm going back to the Barn at the end of the month for the two-week Improvisations class. Color me masochistic!

On one hand it'll be exciting to be there again. I am leaping from her most basic beginning class to an intermediate level class. Ambitious and over reaching? But I've set my sights high and not just any instructor will do. What am I getting into!?

On the other hand I haven't fully explored what I learned last fall. I'm doing my darnedest to finish my ribbon quilt top. Should've finished this and more! Could've gone off on so many tangents. Would've been nice to have the more time to pursue these - more than a couple hours after dinner.

Time limits what I accomplish and what avenues I explore. I am a tortoise.

  1. I felt the same way too. I took three of her classes in three years and felt I didn't have a chance to explore those ideas further. I'm taking this year off to not only explore things further, but to also develop my inner voice. What I do is SOOO influenced by her... makes me want to distance myself from that type of work. Have fun at your class, I think you will LOVE it! Robin
