So excited!

Posted on November 15, 2011 at 4:01pm 3 Comments

I'm so excited!  One of my Alliance for American Quilts contest entries is up for auction this week and someone has already bid $50 (starting bid).  For more information about the AAQ auction, here's a link: http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs011/1101594196900/archive/1108613702498.html

Out of it; I hope!

Well, I guess I'm finally out of my dry spell!  I've made several things this past month and I'm back to where I used to be with a few quilts in different phases of completion and one in the planning stage.  I'm so glad for this site because of all of my friends and acquaintences here who have encouraged me to get back to it.  I thought I'd lost the quilting bug forever!  I always go overboard with hobbies only to lose interest after a year of two.  But quilting had lasted 6 years so I thought maybe I found THE hobby for me.  But when that dry spell hit I just assumed it was just like every other hobby...gone forever.  It was so upsetting to me not only because I'd invested a ton of money into it, but because this is the only hobby that has helped me mentally as well.  No matter what kind of chaos is going on in my life, when I'm quilting or thinking about quilting nothing bothers me...I feel calm and at peace.  So for several months I was pretty much…

Good morning QuilterBridget.  Just read on another post that you live in Seaside, OR.  Small town, no groups or guilds.  I live in Corvallis and have found a wonderful group to be a part of.  Hope you have found someone to share your love/passion of quilting with.

Sorry it took so long to get back here.  I love practicing my long arm and quilting techniques and I watch a lot of youtube.  There are a lot of wonderful sites out there.

Hi Bridget,

This is the first time I checked back in at all, and I saw your comments.  I am sorry about answering so late, and also that your dream of having children didn't happen.  I never thought I'd get married, and then when I did I think my folks flipped as they were in their 70s!  I am not a youngster, older that you I'm sure, and I won't stop working for at least 5 years.  My daughters are back and forth from living here to moving on so I don't have a room of my own.  But I bought an antique dresser 30 years ago and it's full of these baby clothes scraps which I'm sewing together and crazy quilting.  I'll be at this project for years!  This is because my mom, who was a Depression child, never had nice clothes.  So her granddaughters had satins, silks, velour, and a rainbow of pink and purples.  

    I love the fabrics and the stuff is not only all I have left of their babyhood, it's one of the things my mother gave them.  She's been gone ten years and it's tough.  So if I quilt  the fabric together, they'll have the memories even longer.  Best wishes, Judy
