    Excited about class, but...

    I'm so excited about a class I'm taking tomorrow on Ruler Work. I have been waiting since December and I'm driving 50+ miles to take this class - so hopefully will have a great experience and learn lots of fun stuff. But last night I dreamed about the class.... I walked in and they had it set up in a large fancy room - which was full of celebrities at the sewing machine, and a secondary room where it was simple, but usable. I was nudged to the secondary 'lower class' room and set down my stuff at one of the sewing machine stations. Then someone came in & took my spot, and nudge my things aside. Then someone else did the same thing. Crazy! My dream class turned into a bizarre nightmare. hahaha! All the celebrities at their sewing machines got full attention from the instructors, but the cast-off class was just there trying to hang on. Totally weird!!! The quilt store where I going was very nice and friendly. I can't wait to tell them about my bizarre dreams about their class. Funny!

    Do y'all have crazy quilty dreams?

    Let us know how your class went - - -

    Yes - I sometimes have odd dreams - and they sometimes don't go away after I get up.

    So funny! Did you at least get some autographs?

    I'm beginning to do some ruler work and have taken a couple of classes. Usually my machine will act up in class, so I can't get the full benefit of the practice.

    The only quilt dreams I've ever had were how to solve a problem I was having with design or construction so, useful dreams. I have enough anxiety about quilt classes so I'm glad I haven't had one like yours!
    I'm sure you'll have a great time.

    I sometimes dream about quilting and my quilt turns out spectacular! To bad it's just a dream.

    I'm sure your class will go a lot better than your dream!
    I have weird dreams too, but not about quilting. That surprises me because all I seem to think about is quilting!

    I honestly don't think I ever dream about quilting. It's usually me driving and not knowing which exit to use, or sonething like that. And it's snowing. Hope your class turns out to be fun!

    I don't remember any quilting-related dreams, but I did have a work-related dream, more than 40 years ago. I had a new baby, and was learning my second programming language, FORTRAN. The baby started crying in the middle of the night, and in my dream I tried to program a diaper change. The baby quit crying, and in my dream the program was working. Then the baby started crying again - oh no! A 'bug' in my program! I have to fix it! I eventually woke up to real life, and a wet baby.

    Dunster-- that is the best "work" dream ever LOL! When the baby started crying did the card reader spit out your stack of cards too??? That's the main thing I remember about Fortran-- the university where I worked in 1979 still used Keypunch machines and it seems that I was always having that reader spit out something that was not right LOL...

    PS- if you figure out how to create a yard weeding program let me know...

    My first programming jobs did indeed involve punch cards. How things have changed!

    Yes, I have some very weird dreams but none about quilting. Example of my latest dream: my hubby and I were in the International Tomato Catching Championship. As the referee was explaining the rules, my husband asked "what kind of tomatoes are they"?. This is exactly the kind of question he would ask, but really?! MAbe I am just hungry for some good tomatoes. I am sure your class will be great and you will learn lots of new tools to use for your quilting.

    Class was great, y'all!
    I'm exhausted - but I learned a lot and feel like I gained confidence on how to use set up the foot & the rulers. (Class was from 10am to almost 5pm - and I had to drive 50+ miles to it.)
    There were no celebrities in the class - but we all felt like Stars by the time we left.

    I can highly recommend The Stitchery shop in Rome, GA, and Westalee Instructor Debbie Martinez. Wahoo!!

    Now to practice up a storm and them put all this fun new knowledge to great use!

    Tally Ho!

    Dunster, you made me LOL with this!

    My dreams aren't nearly as creative, but sometimes I do wake up with the answer to something I was trying to figure out or decide the day before.

    Osewfast, I'm glad your class turned out better than your dream!

    I don't dream about quilts, but I do "focus" on them as I am trying to fall asleep. Patterns? Colors? My next one? Usually puts me to sleep...does this mean I am boring myself to sleep? LOL

    Glad to hear the class was great.

    The one thing I have to keep remembering when people say "living the dream"...nightmares are dreams, too!
