Who me?

Welcome to my blog. Fabric has always been a passion of mine! I love looking, touching, feeling, smelling and of course creating with fabric. I was a professional seamstress for 13 years and now sew for relaxation and the pure joy of seeing a finished creation. It is my hope to share my triumphs and temptations with you. Love to all.

Spring On In

I can't wait for Spring! Truly. I need warmth and flowers and more

Of course I do. And I know the perfect way to do that...SHOPPING!

And the perfect places!

On a past note:

Retreat was alot of fun! It was all about sewing, chatting, eating, sewing and did I mention eating...I tell ya all, Camp Huston sure knows how to feed a crowd. And I was in "sweat shop heaven" all attached to my sewing machine and fabric for 3 full days!

The large quilt top - my sister's... the 2 little doll quilts - those would be mine...for my lovely little grandaughter's.

OH! one more adventure: Quilt Olympics! March 15, 2012 with the Busy Bee Quilter's Guild of Snohomish County. It's another day of "quilting"! The guild will be making quilt tops all day for children's charities. I even get to take half the day off from work. How can that go wrong?

February was busy. March even more so. But all in fun and the enjoyment of doing what I like best. It's always a pleasure to meet up with people who enjoy what you do and meet new people too. I encourage you to get out on an adventure! Do what you like to do best.

Love to You.
