It's My Birthday and there are NO HOOPS

Camille Roskelley
to jump through for this.  You don't have to follow me anywhere,  though if you are new it would be nice, or like me anywhere. So today is my Birtday as my DD#1 decrees as she made a mistake many years ago and forgot the h so Birtday it has become.

Now what happens on a person's birthday?  The person gets presents but not on this person's birthday!  This person loves to give presents and my present to you this year is a Craftsy Class at half price not just for today but forever.  That's right you can take this class at half price any time you want.

Now you know I am a HUGE (huge said just like Julia Roberts says it in An Officer and a Gentleman when she tells those stuck up women in the store what a HUGE mistake they made - I LOVE that bit) fan of Craftsy and have learnt how to quilt from beginning to end from their classes.  Without Craftsy I still would be a wanna-be and not a piecer and the next thing is I will be able to quilt too thanks to them.  There aren't that many classes around and I have MS which makes attending any classes quite impractical.  Thank you so much Craftsy.

So which class I hear you ask.  Well it's like this.  I really love Camille Roskelley and especially I love her Swoon quilt.  I mean who doesn't love that quilt because it is totally gorgeous malorgeous!!  I bought the chart (pattern) when it first came out but until now I haven't had the courage to do it.  But after taking this class I now am going to make it block by block.  The really GREAT things about Craftsy is that the classes belong to you forever and that means forever and ever and you can access it whenever you want.  Just click on this LINK <LINK TO 50% OFF CLASS> and you will be taken to the right place to get 50% off forever.  That is if you come today, tomorrow or in 5 years time it will always be 1/2 price and so I am going to put this link on the side of my blog for everyone FOREVER!!!

Now I have raved about Craftsy classes in the past but this one is honestly the best I have ever taken.  Camille takes you from how to cut fabric properly (and it REALLY works) to how to finish your quilt properly.  She is one amazing teacher that is for sure.  There are 8 Lessons in this Class and I watched every single one and now when I want to do any of the things trust me I shall have the class in front of me whilst I cut and sew.  She is one amazing teacher that teaches you right from the beginning to the very end.  I think I said this before but it is so true.  Just have a look at my screen captures to see a little tiny bit of this GREAT class and there is lots more than I've shown you.  I know I've said trust me before but this time REALLY TRUST ME this is by far the best class I've taken so far.  She has taught me so much it's untrue.

This is Class Number 3 which teaches
you how to make a lovely quilt out of a Layer Cake
Class 4 - Bordering The Piece of Cake Quilt
Not just the Piece of Cake Quilt
but ANY Quilt
Class 4 - The Hashtag Quilt
I love this quilt and it is made from a Jelly Roll
Class 5 - Here Camille teaches you how to
make half squares from Charm Packs and yardage

Class 6 - the Start of the Swoon Quilt
This must be Class 8
and it is a wicked class I promise you

Well as I said above here is my birthday to you guys for being such a GREAT bunch of people.

Now what did I get?  Well my son and darling daughter-in-law took us to that restaurant Saturday night and it was very expensive so that was my birthday present from them and I loved every mouthful I can assure you.  The food was incredibly yummy.

 I got my birthday present from my dh early - I mean really early like before last Christmas when the iPad mini came out he bought me that for my combined Chanukah and birthday present.  And I love it to pieces.

DD#1 gave me a lovely bunch of flowers which are just glorious and totally unexpected.  She also took us out for coffee this morning.  It was lovely.

DD#2 is still very unwell but I did get a lovely phonecall from her.  She reallly has it tough.

See you soon I hope
