I am happy to be a part of this group. I am an amateur quilter - have always dreamed of just being able to quilt and quilt. However, was a single Mom and just did not take the time. After retirement have moved to be near a daughter and her family. Now I am going to start quilting! Well, maybe not. Now I have a disabled son living with me - so am back working part time in the Church office. Love my job - but it does not leave much time for that quilting.
I tell my friends that I will just plan a little quilt shop for Heaven. When I am in the fabric stores, I pick out material that I really like, and order some for my Shop. I hope God is getting my order. I should pick a good name for it???
Have gone thru my stash which is not very big - then remembered a drawer in my hutch that is full of fabric. Now to get that out and see what I can find.
Well, did not realize it has been a whole year since I have been here - but have been doing some "quilting" recently. Have made a couple of table runners for my daughter - need to get pictures posted. She loves chickens so one had chickens and the other on is farm fabric. And am looking for material for another one.
Have started a quilt for my son - he loves cats and found some great "cat" fabric at Missouri Quilt Co. He wants it long enough so his feet do not stick out…Continue
Bright sunshine this morning - predicted 78 today and 80 tomorrow. YEAH!! Finally!! Love the warm summer days.
Finally getting a small sewing area set up in my bedrom. Our apartment is just too small to try to set it up here in the living room or dining area. And did a bit of sewing yesterday afternoon. Now need to get out some of the material i want to use. Do not have much, but am sure I will have the colors i want. Will be good to start sewing some again.
Am going to the DoNut Shop this morning to meet a friend for our Bible study - we have been meeting there Tues mornings for about 4 years. And have had such a bless time.
Then a bit of shopping - i want to get one of those small table-top ironing boards and to the club for a walk on the treadmill. Then back to my sewing later. Am working on quarter inch seams and matching corners when joining squares. Will get a couple of pictures posted.
Hope everyone is…Continue
