Evening folks, I have something a little different to show you, it is crafty tho so I think it qualifies for a blog post! Before I was a stamper I was a quilter and I quilted a lot. The year I was expecting my third child I made 10 quilts. Eight of them were full bed-sized quilts and the other two were smaller wall hangings.This smaller quilt was one of those and I found this pic of it as I was rummaging about the computer the other day waiting for the web folks to fix my internet connection.
The idea for this quilt was a simple picture of an Irish country cottage surrounded by lanes and fields and in real life it's a pretty nice quilt, even if I am blowing my own trumpet a bit. What you can't really see from the pic is that in between the fields I sewed little hedges and stone walls - these were made from strips of knitting, cut from old pullovers, and they sit up out of the quilt.
I never had energy like I did that year, I look back and wonder who that woman was, that lady who looked after two children, walked a mile and a half to school, four times a day, kept a house, and quilted like crazy. If I could get her back WMS would be on fire!
So I'm curious now, what else do you do besides stamping?
