Missing Classes

Monday, June 28, 2010

I accidentally deleted all of the Classes that I did in the last week, They are not recoverable so I'm going to be doing tutorials on the things we covered and also classes off and on this week while I'm home.  I will post a schedule of what classes I will have throughout the week.

Sorry for the mess up, I'm still getting used to the site.

So, I'm a Pilot now.......

Okay, so I got to fly a plane on Thursday....not just fly IN IT, I FLEW IT.

It was a Cessna 4 seater and OMG, it was so FREAKING AWESOME....

This is one of my Bucket List Items to do before I was 50 (will be 47 this year). Now I really want to get my actual pilots license.

I was in Mesa and flew through the Superstition Mountains and around Weavers Needle. I got to fly right around it. My sisters friend that took us did the take off (I got to do all the checks with him and 'drive' the plane down the air strip. He was going to let me take off, but i didn't feel quite confident enough with my steering yet. As soon as we were off the ground, I took control...OMG..IT WAS AWESOME (have I mentioned that yet?) We flew up the river and over Roosevelt Dam, then turned towards Weavers Needle and flew around that, and out to the front side of the mountains. We were in the air for about 1 hour. Then we got to do the approach to Falcon Field and I did the entire approach, calling into the tower, etc up until just 20 feet off the ground. Next time, I'm going to do the take off AND the landing. OMG, IT WAS FREAKING AWESOME....did I tell you that?????

Stork and Baby File

Saturday, June 12, 2010

I had the great opportunity to teach a one on one class to a very sweet lady from Kansas named Jackie.  She came up on Thursday and we worked on Thursday evening, Friday day and Saturday morning.  She was awesome and learned so much.  One of the things I taught her was to create a paper piecing.  She created on her computer as I created on mine and we worked through each step, anyway, here is my finished project and the files I created.  I hope you enjoy them. 

My apologies for not having the KNK format.  I finally found my key, but it won't work with Windows 7 (I hope to figure out a solution, in the meantime, please use the AI file.  Thanks)
