Recently I started learning how to sew, thanks to some very talented friends from church who have spent a lot of their time helping me. I really appreciate this! For years I've wanted to learn how and now that I am, I'm loving it! I bought a really nice machine- a Bernina. I kind of splurged on it, but I'm really glad I did. I love everything about it! It makes this soothing "shoop shoop" sound as the needle goes through the fabric. After it's been on for a while, it smells really good too! I don't know what it is, maybe the oil that you use to clean it when it heats up from the little light. I find it totally relaxing and very addictive. I am still a novice, but here is one of my first projects, a pink, cream and tan baby quilt I made for my cousin. I think I subconciously made the quilt I would make for myself if I ever had a baby girl. It's fun to have an excuse to make something pink! I am especially satisfied with this one because it was the first time I did a binding all by myself. I wasn't sure if I would be able to get it right on my own, but it seemed to work well. Even the tricky little twisty move you have to do at the end! Learning a new skill is always great for your self-confidence, and quilting has been good for mine. Here's to new hobbies!
I'm a stay-at-home mom of five who likes photography, quilting, reading, cooking when I'm in the mood, watching movies, going to the beach, home renovation and decorating, swimming, and hanging out with my kids. At the moment I'm a bit obsessed with Downton Abbey.
I live in New England, and my favorite season is spring. I love the colors green and pink.
