I really enjoy all kinds of needlework and have made a few smaller quilts (baby quilts, table runners, and wall hangings). I also love to paint and look for ways to incorporate the two. I also enjoy crochet. I recently bought an embroidery machine and I'm having a great time with it!

I didn't see the friend request until just now. Of course I'll be your friend. Thanks for asking. LOL. You have pretty things on your photo pages. I love the fabric and Christmas EM. I think I even have that design. And the hydrangea painting is very nice. I wish I could that. Have a great day and talk to you later.
My husband and I both worked at Ft McPherson, we wore out a lot of cars! It was very sad to hear that they closed the post. I don't understand why the US government is doing these things. They spent a lot of money building and moving people from Atlanta to North Carolina. I grew up in Marietta and my father worked at Lockheed. I have seen a lot of changes and now I cannot call this place home. Very sad.I never stopped at Ohco even though I drove by for many years. I was told back then that they only made dishcloth's.
I am from Georgia (lived in Covington from 1981 until 1998 and in Marietta from birth until 1974) My kids graduated from Newton County High School (the only high school in the county at that time) I miss Georgia, but not that current area. It has become to big and busy. How long have you been in Conyers?
Hi Alicia - saw a post that made me wonder and so I looked and see you are from Conyers, not very far from me! I don't visit Conyers often because of your horrible traffic, but we get to Covington. Do you ever go to Ohco when they have their warehouse sale?
When it says use this color as a base material, I hooped that color material with a permanent stabilizer that would handle the thread count. I didn't use batting but the snowpeople are done with fleece so they look puffier. When the tiles are done, they are sewn together along the outline stitching. Then you can back and sandwich as desired for your wallhanging.
I hope this helps. They go pretty quickly as there is a lot of applique. Have fun.
