|Completed practice squares|
I always start the Pathways class with a small practice square using Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry's "applipiecing" technique. After the students get the over/under preparation of seams and stitch one or two, they are ready to design their own pathways on the larger pattern. Everyone got the practice square done and I got a group photo before we moved on to drawing our flying geese or piano keys or mountains/valleys pathways.
My hostess lives south of Mobile, almost to Dauphin Island, and after following the directions I was given, it was reassuring that I was at the right house when I saw the wrought iron Ohio Star on the garage. The gated community has small lots, so the houses are three-story with elevators. "My" bedroom window and balcony had beautiful views overlooking the Fowl River. What an amazing sunrise!
