This is me


I've been flirting with crafts ever since I can remember. For some years, I agonized because I could not find anyone who taugth me how to quilt (my mother had taught me to sew and embroider, my grandmother to knit... although i am not patient enough to knit well).

Finally, I decided to take the matter into my own hands and teach myself how to make quilts. And then I realized there was SOO much into it! The design! the cutting! the piecing! the quilting! I LOVE IT!

My love for all kinds of fabric was reborn. With a vengeance.

You see, I am a mother of two who works about ten hours a day, with a day off a week and every other weekend off. That doesn't leave too much time for crafts! I'm not exactly on the wealthy... scratch that, I'm in deep debt, my hubbie has hit a mean slim streak at work and money is tight, so quitting my job is out of the question. Thus, I have to grab whatever is possible in matters of time.

That means exactly what you are thinking. During the day I belong to my work, at dusk I belong to my daugthers and husband, night has me for dreams but the wee hours of the morning... THOSE are the ones I can have an orgy of planning, designing, cutting and sewing.

This is a journey that only now I start to blog. Join me. Be my companion. Share a bit of my soul in our love of crafts, lovely things and anything fabric.

Hello there! I see you visited my blog, Hester's Garden,which is lovely. It must have been because you love L.M.Montgomery books! I don't speak Spanish (???) but wanted to say hello! I love quilting too but have only made one with my sister's help. One day, I will buy a sewing machine when my children are bigger and make quilts like you.

LOL! then you might have recognized a sort of Anne-esque semi-quote... from the first letter she writes to Gilbert from Windy Poplars? I think it was the first... or was it the second?

Anyway, I'm so glad I found your blog. It was LM Montgomery that started me wondering about quilting. And here I am! I am looking forward to getting to know you better! Thank you for visiting my blog too!

Hi Citlali

Great to read your comment. I'm glad you have such good English! I didn't see the quote from Anne's letter to Gilbert (was it in Spanish???), but I love that book when she is teaching and writing letters to Gilbert.

How old are your children? My oldest daughter is 5 and at preschool and my little one is 2. She's having a nap right now so I'm going to go and lie down. She keeps me up at night - still breastfeeding!
