Joining the Blogging World

Okay, I admit it. I'm only doing this so I can get one of those cool links to Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt page. So I'm a total follower, a sheep if you will. Don't care.

Mom and I took our kaleidoscope quilting class yesterday at Share the Spirit Quilting and Yarn. There are not so many quilting things out there that I really feel the pull of taking a whole day class anymore - most stuff I can figure out by reading a book or looking at a website. But this is one that was worth every penny (of Mom's! It was part of my birthday present.) for someone to show us step-by-step how to do it. I will have to take pics of my stars and y'all can vote on which ones should grace the center of the quilt.

Speaking of darling DD finally got her sewing table and machine set up in her room so she can sew without all the hassle of dragging everything out. The table is an old Singer treadle base with a butcher block top. She looked at the finished scene and sighed saying, "Mommy, I love it. It looks just a little old fashioned." That's my girl! Of course, she also informed me that her sewing room would never be as messy as mine, as she lovingly tucked her 3 1/2" strips of fabric into the SteriLite drawers purchased just for her last weekend.

Out of the mouths of babes...


  1. LOL! I love your first paragraph! I'm new to blogging too....and the Mystery buttons DO look great on our pages! :) Are you going to make Orange Crush?

  2. I was lured in by the Mystery buttons myself. I'm looking forward to doing the Orange Crush as well!

    Happy Quilting
