Never Say Never to Starting Something New


FROM THIS


TO THIS


TO THIS

Yep, like I have said before...I never believed that quilting is something that I would ever be interested in, or caught doing. Well, I was wrong. I love the whole process of choosing the fabric, piecing it together and coming out with something finished in the end. You know, kinda like a scrapbook page. I am finally finished this quilt that I have made for my daughter, Hannah, and I can honestly look at it and say to myself "well done". I know that she is only fifteen, I know that she loves the quilt, and I know one day she will appreciate it and treasure it even more than she will now. I also hope that one day, my children will find hobbies and interests that are as fulfilling to them, as mine are to me.
I encourage that this year maybe one for YOU, to try something NEW....something that you may never have thought you would or could.....give yourself the opportunity.
