So excited!

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…

Thank you for Birthday wishes.

Good luck with the bus. Know what you mean about investing ton of money but we all need a hobby we enjoy.  I have not had much luck with selling things I have made since I quit going to fairs.  But even then the expense of going to fairs and material to make stuff was not good.  Dh supports my hobby and family help a little. 

Worked with the Busy Bees quilt group in Monticello GA for 10 yrs.  they donate to Project Linus the Middle Ga. chapter.  Several middle GA counties in the group and they have donated over 6000 comfort blankets.

All my immediate family have quilts as well as aprons and lot of other handmade items in their homes.  I make most gifts to the family.  The young ones especially love the quilts.  Nieces have put up quilts their children used as babies to pass on to the next generation.  That is neat.  Be sure and label your work, the family enjoy looking at the label yrs later and saying gee can't believe this quilt is that old.  

Some have come to me as much as 10 yrs later wanting their first quilt mended.  Can't talk them into a new one to replace the worn one.  They always want the new and the old one fixed.

I love machine appliqué' and Ricky Tims is probably my favorite quilter.

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.
