My 1st entry

This is my very first entry to my new blog. Where have I been for the last century? I have been like an ostrich with it's head in the sand and I let technology slip on by, but not anymore. Well, since this is my first time at this, I would like to describe myself and see if I have anything in common with anyone who may wander across my little blog. The biggest reason for starting this is because I have been following so many quilting blogs that I want to join in on the fun. I love to quilt, although I do more quilting in my head at work than I actually do at my sewing machine. By the time I get home from work, even though I have the best of intentions, I don't feel like sewing very much, but I have gotten better since we recently moved and my craft/sewing room is a little organized now. My son is older and that makes it a little easier. I started quilting because I always wanted a quilt for my bed. I could not afford the quilts at the flea markets and stores so I thought I can do this. I have always loved sewing and crafts so that's what I did. I started quilting, no pattern, just some calico fabric and a sewing machine. Although, I started on my own, I was introduced to a local quilt store and took a few classes, had a very good teacher and fell in love with quilting. So from now on you can follow me and my world of mostly quilting with a little scrapbooking and crafts thrown in for good measure. I will have to show you a picture of the baby quilt that I have made for my niece's baby girl due next month. Thanks for reading and visit back. Leave a comment so I know someone has found me.
