My Dyslexia

Having the skill to write, spell, and punctuate has never been my strong suit. Growing up as a young child I was always nurtured to be creative and artistic which came naturally to me but I could never quite grasp written language. I now know that it's a learning disabilty with a name: DYSLEXIA.



I write from the heart and I make my best effort to get the words on the page properly but as you'll see I don't always succeed. I ask you to enjoy what I write and post but to be understanding and kind. Brian

And it begins. . .

The troops started arriving about 2:30 and we were all here by 3:30. A little before 4 we started the class with a little history of crazy-quilting and a demonstration of how to piece the quilt. The quilt that I put together had a photo of Aunt Dee's granddaughter, Emma, for Dee to embroider. Mom is teaching Dee some embroidery stitches this weekend. Everyone just had time to get their stations set up and their supplies organized before we broke for dinner. After dinner we came back with the goal of everyone getting their quilts pieced on Friday night. By 6 we were rolling and everyone finished up by about 10.

So THAT's how it's done. (Brian and Sally Peters.)
