Mondays always catch me by surprise. I guess because the weekends just fly by in a blur. Sunday's are always wonderful, full of faith, family and friends. In the end it feels like we have packed an extra day in there somewhere.
I am so blessed by all the love that has been sent my way this weekend. So Thank You to all my new friends out there. I am trying to send a bit of love back via email. Please have patience with me as I am still new at this bloggy thing here. New friends are a wonderful hug, even via blogger land.
On the sewing/quilting front, I am sad to say that I didn't get much done this weekend.( wound a bunch of bobbins in preparation to quilt is all) I have two quilts waiting to be machine quilted. Machine quilting is new for me. I am a hand quilter. I love hand quilting, it is so relaxing to me and I prefer to have something in my hands if watching tv or a movie. So how did I start machine quilting you ask? Thank you for asking.....We have a baby boom going on in our family and my youngest daughter and DIL were planning a baby shower for my oldest daughter last spring. They asked me to make a lap quilt to be raffled off at the shower. Hand quilting is slow so it would have to be machine quilted. Not willing to pass up a chance to learn something new or a challenge, I did it and throughly enjoyed it!
So what new challenge have you taken on and why? I'd love to hear from you.....Susan
