Here's my first attempt at blogging. I've enjoyed reading so many of your blogs that I decided to give one a try. With the help of a friend, here I am.
I'm really machine challenged, especially with computers and all related paraphernalia. I bought a digital camera...I'm embarassed to say...about eight years ago, and just opened the original box this morning and am charging the battery as I type this. I love to look at all your photos so I thought I'd better learn about this new "machine" in order to make my blog interesting too!
I've always loved quilts, especially antique ones. My job involved a lot of travelling and throughout the years, I've been fortunate to amass twenty-two of them which I interchange on my beds on a regular basis. I made a vow that when I retired I would try my hand at quilting and have found that I'm absolutely hooked!
I started quilting a little over a year ago. During that time, I think I've managed to conquer the fear of my sewing machine. That "machine", which my husband bought for me as a birthday present in 1997...was still in it's original box as well. I guess Bernina's are like Maytags, huh?
I've made maybe a half dozen quilts since then and will show you pictures of them as soon as I master my camera.
I am currently working on a BOM from Primitive Gatherings, a Lisa Bongean design entitled "A Primitive Garden."
