I might be crazy, but I sure do have fun! Today, I made a purse using the “crazy” quilt technique. What a fun day! I met 5 ladies in the parking lot of Office Max at 9:00 a.m. and we were off to Dyersburg, TN where we began the fun. We arrived at 10:02 to be exact and set up our sewing machines quickly. After we were set up, we began the process with our “crazy” lady instructor (Debbie) patiently guiding us. The reason I call her the “crazy” lady is because she is an expert on crazy quilting. She is a friend of the author Barbara Randle who makes crazy quilted purses! I have two of Barbara’s books. We sewed until about 1:00 and then broke for Subway sandwiches for lunch. After lunch, we started back up and didn’t finish until 7:15! The outcome: a unique beautiful purse that no one else will have, but me. Boy, it was a lot of work, but it was worth it! Just like teacher research–it’s a lot of work, but then you get an outcome (the answer you may or may not have been looking for), which is well worth the hard work. So, I guess I am crazy if I like both making purses and teacher research!
