Craftsy & my latest projects

Have you heard of It’s an online community of crafters and their projects and you can enroll in online classes and get supplies. I optimistically enrolled in their 2012 Block of the Month class. I’m no expert quilter and haven’t really done any quilting since before my marriage ended, but I felt like I would like to get back into it and have a creative outlet for myself. Not sure when I’m going to fit it in. Craftsy does offer the fabric package for the online class, but I didn’t really like their fabric selections, so ordered my own on eBay. EBay has some pretty good fabric deals. I’m just waiting for the background fabric to arrive, plus some quilting rulers that I ordered. Then I can get started. Hate to say it, but I’m more excited about my quilting class than I am about my professional courses. The good thing about Craftsy classes is that you can take them at your own pace. And once you’ve enrolled in the course, you have unlimited access to it, so you can review any lessons you want for future reference. I have a profile on Craftsy and you can see a couple of my afghans there: one I made for my living room and one I made for my grandson. Purple Cat is my user name. 
Currently, I’ve got about 5 (or maybe more???) crocheting projects on the go. I really need to discipline myself to finish one before I start another... But sometimes I get bored with one. If and when I finish them, I will post more pictures to my Craftsy profile.
