Well, it has been a few days since I have posted. Work has kept me so busy that I wish I didn't have a "day" job so I could quilt whenever I wanted! I had hoped to finish a tote this week-it only needs a bottom put in, but when I got done with work yesterday I was exhausted! So, I will get my rear in gear and sit down to the machine tonight. My quilting buddy called today and wants me to show her how to use my serger, so I may do that tonight as well. She is making fleece flap hats for her son's friend and for my son. The first prototype was a bit tight for a teenaged boy, as we used a women's hat pattern. Anyone have a pattern for a men's flap hat?

It has snowed all day here in Indiana. I came home to be inspired in my studio and decided to work on a T-shirt quilt for a friend's daughter. The design is a work in progress. I didn't want to do the boring blocks with sashing and cornerstones, so it is going to have a scrappier look. The fabric in between the shirts is going to be pieces of purple batiks, the recipient's favorite color. I will post when the top is finished! Maybe someone will have some brilliant quilting ideas. I am the "queen of top making" and "queen of quilting procrastination"!

Well, this is my first attempt at blogging! I really enjoy reading other people's blogs, especially those that make hand crafted items. I am a big-time quilter, and I dabble in crochet. This year, I have tried my hand at knitting. Is it a good idea to take classes, or can you learn from a book? Would love to hear from you people out in blogland!
