Quilt With Us

Dear Mom, my MOJO is slowly coming back...

It's hard for me to get back in the groove after the Holidays. It's been that way since my mom passed away in 1998. Hard to believe she's been gone this long. Mom wasn't a crafty person - she loved that kind of thing but, with 4 kids and no one to teach her, she really never learned how to do things. Think of all the wonderful inspirational things we have these days.

  • Sewing/Quilt/Embroidery classes at the shops - used to be you could buy fabric almost anywhere but, the only place you learned how to do things were from family, friends, and neighbors.
  • Computer -
    • You Tube videos are the greatest, aren't they??? And to be able to have them delivered to your e-mail inbox is even better! I can't tell you how many things I've learned from them.
    • Being able to search for a special fabric - what luxury!
    • Having it shipped right to your home - awesome!
    • Being able to download embroidery designs immediately.
    • Able to find unique fabrics, notions, tools from all over the world - it truly has become a "Small World, after all"
    • Computerized equipment - sewing machines, embroidery machines, long arm & sit down quilters...

My mom would have been in a tizzy over everything that is out there now. While some of these items were available when she was alive, the past few years have seen technology make huge leaps in the industry. I'd like to think that mom is sitting right here next to me asking me to show her something or teach her something. She'd have loved what we can do now.

Awww, what a sweet tribute to your mom Sheila.  My mom was a fabulous seamstress and she also loved to knit, crochet & do cross stitch.  She never learned to quilt though.  I think if we lived closer than 1500 miles apart she would have learned to quilt as she always loved the ones I made for her.
