Too busy really! But what's a girl to do?? Work and play make for busy times! I've been working extra hours over the past couple of weeks, and I'm working on another stage performance here in our local theatre that we do on the 30th and 31st, so yeah, I've been a little busy!
Which means almost no time for sewing. But today, I decided to take a few minutes between church and studying lines to do a little slow Sunday stitching. I saw a little project done with yo-yos and decided to give it a whirl! I spent some time figuring the size I'd need to start with, I traced around the rim of a few glasses from my kitchen until I found the perfect size! And so I at least got a start!
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
