Well another day not spent in my sewing room. I had an appointment late morning today. And some more errands. But, in the midst of those errands I visited a Quilt Shop! There is nothing like walking around a quilt shop looking, touching and imagining what you could do with all that fabric. I could spend hours in one. Yes, I have been told it’s a sickness, but what a way to go. 🙂 Anyway, that’s just what I needed to get me motivated here at the house. I have made my list for tomorrow. Bright and early I’ll be attacking that room.
I have always wanted to learn how to quilt. So much so that when I was injured and had to give up work, I made virtual quilts on my website. In 2005 after moving to NC I finally got my wish.
My mentor, Donna and another friend Joyce have gotten me into doll quilts. Of course it didn’t take much for me to jump on board. I love dolls. I have dolls. So making them quilts just seemed like the natural thing to do. Actually, the very first quilt retreat I ever went to back in 2005, I won a raffle for a doll bed that Donna made. She even made a mattress and pillow out of ticking and made covers for them both. And of course she made a beautiful quilt to go with it. The quilt guild I belong to, Brunswick Quilters had a quilt show in 2010 and I had it on display.

I am blessed to have found a wonderful guild with such talented members who share so willingly.
