It is official!! I am a quilt teacher. My name has been put on the calendar to teach my very first class. I even have one student already. Who paid. Money! To learn from ME! Can we say nervous?
I will be teaching this quilt. It was a pattern by someone else, but had Y-seams all over the place. If you don’t know what that is – they aren’t that much fun. So, my mom figured out a way to have fewer Y-seams and now it goes together much easier!
The class is September 19th and the closer it gets the scarier it is. What happens if I run out of time and don’t get all the steps taught? What if they give me a bad evaluation? What if I get a student without a clue and I have no idea how to get them to understand? What if. What if. What if?! I shouldn’t let my mind wander this much, but these people (well, person) are paying money to learn something from me.
*Breath Robin. Breath!*
Okay. I’m back.
I’ll have to get my act together. Make lots of samples (as suggested by a wise friend of mine), and just jump in. (I’m saying these things to convince myself I can do it as much as I am explaining my thought process to anyone reading!)
A wise train once said, “I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.”
