So in the last week I have discovered a new passion! (Not sure it technically counts as a passion since I haven’t actually started doing it or even know if I can…) Well for now it’s a passion and let’s hope it becomes a hobby too…
I have always loved them! I have a few and a couple are really special given to me by my Maw-Maw which was her moms who died when Maw-Maw was a young girl. So, they are quite special! And beautiful!!! I’m lucky to have them!
One of my favorite items in Lola’s room is a bear I bought of etsy made from an old quilt in light purple and pink! I thought that was a great way to use old quilts. Last time I went to Canton I saw a booth that sold lots of old quilts really cheap… and as cool as some of them are, not sure I want to buy old, used quilts. My “I am a freak about stranger’s germs” side.
The other day Clay and I went to Yogurtland (quite good and great deals!) and we stopped at a bookstore as well… the last few weekends I haven’t found anything at our usual Borders stops, so I made up for that! I bought 3 Quilting/Sewing Magazines and have actually made the time to really read them! I am fascinated by quilts and making them. I can only imagine the proud feeling of accomplishing one! Which is exactly what I want to do!
So if anyone knows anyone who quilts, I would love to pair up with someone for a couple of brief times to learn as much as I can!
Considering I can sew some, I feel confident that I can quilt too! Sewing is such good therapy and I like how you can always stop and come back to a project! (Unlike Baking) And of course the feeling of making something is really inspiring! I think that’s why I love Lola’s room so much and it just makes me want to keep decorating nurseries! So much sewing to do for a nursery, especially little girl rooms!
And from here on out- I think I just want gift cards to Joanns and Cutting Corners or any other great sewing places! I may start on a quilt…
This is the magazine I bought and it’s really good! I loved this quilt! Doesn’t look as bright on the cover, but still I can pick any fabric I want! And there’s pretty detailed instructions…
I like some other quilts as well, but I think this one may be a good start one… lol… I’ll have to keep you updated! I may need to start figuring out where and how I can sew while Lola naps!! Sometimes it wakes her up! ;)
On a side note- today is day 2 of exercising! I have just been taking Lola with me and it’s been great! Hot, but great! Today Lola and I were headed to grab a bite to eat afterwards and I pulled into CFA and turned around to get her and she was sound asleep! I guess all the walking and jogging wore her out!! :) Although seems like she may be getting ear infections again or it’s her back tooth- we were up from 3-6 a.m. last night… :(
Almost Friday! Hooray! Kebby graduates this weekend! YAYAYAYAYAYA!
