I have been a bit under the weather the last few days and haven't felt like doing too much so I have turned the air on as it's been very humid and yuk! and I have spent the time handquilting. I love handquilting. I find it so relaxing, meditative almost. I wonder sometimes am I the only one out in quilting world who still enjoys quilting projects by hand. Am I just a dinosaur who resists change? I know we lead extraordinarily busy lives today but I love that I can look forward to that quiet time spent hand quilting and hand stitching as quilters in the past have done. I get really excited when I see hand applique, embroidery, stitcheries and hand quilting. I know we would all be lost without our trusty sewing machines. Me included. But I hope we continue this legacy and don't lose the pursuits of the gentle arts.
I love designing my own patterns which I have named Rag-tag Stitchin' designs. I design all kinds of stitcheries and applique for quilts etc. I love designing Christmas projects especially. My Husband and my Family and friends are the most important people in my life.
