I'm the mother of four wonderful, grown children and grandmother to two beautiful baby girls. I am also married to a saint of a man, who, when asked if he minds my fabric obsession, just shrugs and says he doesn't want to know what goes on "downthere".
I have been sewing most of my life, or so it seems. I bought my first sewing machine, as soon as I got home from my honeymoon....does that tell you anything? I was raised in a very creative home. My Mom took her very large weaving loom to the retirement home. It's all in the genes..I'm not going anywhere without my sewing machine or should I say machines.
Things I love
above all colour ...it calls my name (my youngest asked me the other day, if maybe I should try making a monochromatic quilt, my head hurts just thinking about it but...you never know).
texture, shapes, repetition and rhythm.
beauty in nature.
researching methods...is there and easier and faster way is usually my first question.
learning from books...I haven't taken any quilting classes yet...but who knows
I love my quilting friends (Blockheads we call ourselves)
To Blog or Not to Blog? is the title of my first post (December 2010) That question had been running through my head for weeks. I was suddenly and still am spending more time in front of the computer then in front of my sewing machine? It started innocently enough. In one word FLICKR!!!! Need I say more?? I had no idea, there was such a vast subculture of online quilters out there. To make a long story short I discovered something wonderful...I love the interaction of so many quilters. Seeing your work, admiring your work and sharing mine with you. I value your comments, you are all so positive and encouraging (funny too..I love funny).
I would love to hear from you.
