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.
