Joan's Musings My how time does fly, October already! At the same time even though several weeks have passed since my last post, it is wonderful that life is so full.

Delta Dawn is in DesMoines, Iowa at the AQS show, she was sent off on the 29th of September UPS, it cost nearly an arm and a leg, $36.00 for 2nd day air, and an additional $15.00 for a return receipt.

I spent several days/weeks on a new piece, "Sea Squirts". It has a twofold purpose. One for an entry in "Art Meets Science" (or something like that), an entry through SAQA, and my piece for the Whispering Challenge that my AQ group in Fort Collins is doing. The quilt is now with the current AQ Whisper participant, and the registration ,and digital photos is complete and sent to SAQA for jury. I wanted to have it professionally photographed but time did not allow for that, hopefully my photos are adequate.

I am just finishing a ten week on line photography class. It has been fun, and I have learned a lot, of course I started with almost no knowledge of photography.

I gave a class to my Glacier View Sewing Group on making mittens from recycled felted sweaters yesterday.

My AQ group is doing " A Bag a Month" challenge. I made one from a recycled sweater for the October meeting, and I think I will go work on another today.

I want to get back to my "Asian Wedding" quilt, but seems to lack the inspiration, it has been waiting a long time.
