Things are coming together nicely at the shop. There's a few more things on hubby's to do list but I can see the end in site! Today, I stayed at the shop all day, waiting for deliveries. Let me tell ya, when you get a big ol' box of sewing supplies in and go through them all, checking things out, it's right up there with Christmas! LOL!
So today was a sewing day, not much that I could do today other than that. I've been working on this other Kim Diehl one. I can't remember what it's called though. You know, I just can't get enough of her stuff. I'm actually thinking about starting a Kim Diehl club at the shop. Have you made any Kim Diehl quilts? I've got two on the go right now, this one needs the borders, then the little wool melons added and it'll be ready for quilting!
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!
