First year as a REAL quilter. I had been sewing up to this point in June of 2010 off and on for 20 years. First it was dresses for me, hated them, then skirts for me, hated them, and then I stopped. I would do curtains once in a while but never really did much more than that. When my daughters turned around 5 or 6 I started making nightgowns, no zippers!! Then I loved on to shorts, PJ bottoms, and a few summer tops. Back to the zippers I went and started making church dresses for them. I loved that. But that stopped other than the PJ bottoms until June of 2010. The kids were out of school and I was looking for something more to do than playing on the computer all summer long. A friend and I started talking about how much we both loved sewing. She mentioned blog. I had hear of them and read a few that were about scrapbooking and paper crafts but that wasn't where my heart was. So I gave it another try with the blogs and I was hooked! I found that there were a lot of other crazy lovable people out there that shared my passion. FABRIC!!!I was in Heaven. I started sewing, collecting fabrics and patterns, doing all the wild things I found in the blogs. At first I was just going to sit back and read them but in July I decided I wanted a blog of my own. Now here I am 6 months later with 26 followers and almost 75 posts. I can't believe it. I am hoping to post all of the things I did into this page 2010. I don't know how long I can keep up sewing, blogging, and posting but I am going to try!
