You're never too old to learn new things- no matter how old you are. Autumn and I took a tatting class at the local quilt shop this morning. No photos were taken there as it was too intense, and took both of our hands. A classroom full of people, one teacher, and a difficult subject made me nervous. I feel the same way about knitting. Eventually, I set my shuttle down, and started planning a quilt for my bed. Autumn, on the other hand, was determined, and sat through several hours of instruction. She's been practicing all afternoon.
Tonight, the children and I took a pasta making class. Now that I could really get into! I was so proud of my children as they kneaded their own dough and carefully formed farfalle and penne. I chose to make ravioli.
After we got everything made, our instructor cooked some of our efforts and we had a dinner right there of fresh pasta, and crusty bread. I didn't even have to do the dishes!
