Creative Wisdom: Baby Steps

"Begin at the beginning... and go on till you come to the end: then stop." Lewis Carroll
Remember that list you made last week? Look at it an choose one thing from it.
Now DO IT!
Today I signed up for life drawing sessions.

I'll be checking into the class forum each day to answer any and all questions you might have.

I've got to say that Quilt University is one of the best deals out there. $37 for four lessons and that much of my time is an absolute steal!
