Starting Out

This is my first blog post. I am very excited but recognize that I am quite an amateur at this. I not only love quilting and sewing but really most everything that I do. I am a full-time first grade teacher and as you can well imagine much of my creative energy goes into this very demanding job. I have been so inspired by the quilting blogs of others as well as the family blogs of friends. My experience here may be an eclectic collection of many creative experiences. I hope you enjoy the journey and this gathering place!

Shortly after I discovered the "Moda Bake Shop" I saw Holly's post with the Neptune Necklace. I was so enthused and gathered everything to make it with a charm pack that I had bought last summer. This is my first, not my best, try at it. I was so excited about it being done even though it was far from perfect! I immediately made another one for my mom for St. Patrick's Day and it turned out beautiful! Holly gave me some tips that helped me out! Thanks, Holly! Last week my 8 year old granddaughter who has been living in Hawaii arrived back in the area to live. Her mom showed her the one on the MBS and she wanted me to show her how to make one. The first day she was back, she made a pink one. She caught on so fast and was very patient in the process. I was so impressed! I will post a picture another day of her masterpiece! It is very sweet! Have a creative day!
