My first quilt top in over a year!!! The last one was Jamie's quilt last summer. I will post her's later, because like everything about her, she deserves her own spolight!
Ever since that quilt, I had not accomplished much crafting for fun. I have done a few projects that fit our family needs. Monogramming the boys' school uniform shirts. Fixing a hem. Covering a dog bed. Nothing that really was "me".
Another babyloss momma sent me some fleece and edging to make a memory blanket for her this past Summer. I cannot tell you how long I procrastinated, because I am quite embarrased. It was like the act of sewing would mean that my life was moving on. When I did finally finish it (okay...confession October!), it was like the heaven's opened and kickstarted me to remember why I always crafted.
I have always crafted for the love of my family. Making gifts for family afar, decorating our home to make it cozy and inviting for ourselves and our visitors. I have always loved making things that made me smile. If it made something more organized...oh the bliss for my "slight" self-proclaimed OCD personality!!!!
I have always been pretty humble about my work. I am my own worst critic....so I won't mention to you what is driving me crazy about this top!!!!
I was contemplating the name of this quilt....I definitely need to make it a victory of sorts. When I border and quilt it, I will be sure to let you all know!!!!!
