Fire and Ice Mariner's Compass Star Class

I just received my confirmation email from the Lowell Quilt Festival to take the Fire and Ice Mariner's Compass Star class with Carol Doak in August (image of the quilt we'll make below - image from Lowell Quilt Festival website). YAY!!! I'm so excited for it.

My aunt, KK, and a co-worker of mine, Lynn will be taking this class together. I don't know if I'm going to make it until August. It seems like so far away. How am I going to hold out making this until then. I think I'm going to TRY and wait to pick out my fabric for this until a little closer to the event. "Try" is the key word there. I'm really trying to cut back on my spending because DH and I are looking at houses and we're really trying to build our savings to really build a nest egg in case anything happens.

Whenever I hear "Fire and Ice," I automatically think of the Robert Frost Poem:

Some say the world will end in fire;

Some say in ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire.

But if it had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate

To know that for destruction ice

Is also great

And would suffice.

I've been quiet lately because I've been battling a cold. Yuck. I haven't been sick all winter, so it was about time I got sick. Plus, we've had some really weird weather around here where it's nice one day and snowing the next. I don't think that has helped me. Plus, last weekend a bunch of friends and I went down to Mohegan Sun for a girls night out and spent the night down there. We had a blast.

  1. If you have never taken a class with Carol Doak, you are in for a real treat! She is fantastic! You will learn so much and become so hooked. I can't wait to see your creation. I hope you saw a great show at Mohegan. I love to go there every once in a while to see a show.
