I am getting soooo excited! Next Wednesday we are moving out of the Dark Ages and into the fast High Speed Internet world! We live out in the country with bluffs along the river which has kept us from fast internet. The only reason I have ever wanted to move to town was for high speed internet. Last fall a company called Speed Connect came out and said if their service worked it would be fast…..unfortunately they couldn’t get a signal…..even outside. They put our name on a list and I never figured I would hear anything more, then in December I got a call that they were going to put up a tower in our area and would I be interested…..YES!
We have had several different satellite companies but even with an expensive package you can’t watch videos and there was always the dreaded…..you are over your limit for the month. For the last 2 years we have been using Virgin Mobile which has been unlimited but slow and you never know when it will work. I do have to admit that their customer service is fantastic though.
So guess what I did yesterday….I signed up for 3 different classes at Craftsy – there is a sale going on through February 17th and each class I signed up for was 50% off. The classes are videos and there was no way I could take them before.
I’m taking the Painted Pictorial Quilts, Pictorial Quilting Techniques and Art Quilting 101 as each was only $9.99. The best part is the classes never expire….which is a good thing as I’m not really sure when I’ll watch them.
Last week I saw that Nancy’s Notions had their Landscape Quilting DVD and workshop on sale so I ordered it and also a yard of some fun landscape batik fabric. I have been looking at this for a while as I saw a short video and it sounded like fun. It came in the mail yesterday!
I remember watching her shows on PBS years ago and her directions are always wonderful. This is the first time I have ever bought a workbook and it is so neat! The pages are all laminated and are removable and there are pockets to place notes you take. I haven’t watched the video yet but the projects look like a lot of fun.
I received a email that Joann.com is having a sale on packaged batting at 50% off and there was also a coupon for Free Standard Shipping on any $40 or more order – Use promotion code VHGW047
I have plenty of batting but I know people asked where I had gotten my roll of batting last week.
I did work on my It’s All About Me project yesterday but no pictures and unfortunately I didn’t work with any purples for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this week.
