A bad time?
I might possibly have chosen a terrible time to pick up a new craft.
You see, I have always wanted to make a quilt. Always. And every time I buy a new bedding set for my bed (mind you it is once every 5 years!) I cringe. The thought goes, like a fleeing deer- bolting infront of oncoming traffic, I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO MAKE A QUILT!!!!!!!
"That'll be ninety-nine dollars and ninety-seven cents please." And I pay it and walk out with my tail between my legs.
So I determined that when we move back into our home, I would sleep the first night there under a handmade quilt.....made here...in the USA....in Alabama.....actually IN Birmingham. I bought the above fabrics- all my favorites that I have been eyeing for quite a while. I bought Alicia Paulson's pattern for her Olallieberry Quilt...... simple....squares.....
I can do this, right?
I have two and a half weeks and I basically have the squares all cut out.
I am mother to 2 and wife to 1 for 20 years. Leaning on Jesus and taking advantage of the grace made free to me through Him! I enjoy lovely things, cooking, antiquing, cross-stitching, traveling, and reading. Falling in love with our new home, New York.
