I spent today in our large side room we use for classes and workshops. We lug our sewing machines & supplies, set up our work areas, and work on projects for our Quilt Faire Boutique. Today was a free-for-all, meaning that whoever had “kits” to share brought them.
Linda made several “chicken kits” and one was on each table. “Everyone must make a chicken first thing this morning! It will take 5 minutes,” she said. Reading the instruction sheet caused several of us to panic. The instructions and diagrams were so complicated. The chickens were not complicated at all, and Linda walked us through the entire process. My chicken took 10 minutes to make, and I am the slowest one here. It was amazing.
When you finished a chicken, you passed it on to Karen. Karen was filling the chicks with crushed walnut shells to complete the pin-cushion chickens. Some gals kept making chickens. I chose to try a new thing this time – a table runner. I brought bunny kits to share because I was tired of making those. Two of our newest members (Liz and Lori) took kits and made some bunnies. I am so thrilled! Like I said, I am tired of making them.
The left front of the table has a few un-stuffed chickens. On the right side sit the smiling bunnies. Below them is a bin filled with bunny kits. The Bunnies sit at the table, showing off their cuteness, trying to entice more quilters to take a kit.
Candy makes table runners look easy.
They are not. She has made a bazillion of them.
Things go much slower when you have made zero.
