I never really thought I might become a blogger, but I stumbled upon the blog of a dear friend in my quilt group, and so enjoyed reading her comments. Laura is so humble and modest, she never really reveals all the wonderful things she does. I wanted to post a comment about her, so here I am!
Laura has mentioned the fun our quilt Lafayette, Indiana quilt group has. They are a wonderful group of gals. We all work together on the annual Guild retreat. I usually name a theme, and round up patterns, etc. Then, we all brainstorm to flesh the ideas out. Occasionally, I will launch an e-mail with some idea that popped into my head, and at first, the others will say, "You're out of control!" But, Laura is always ready to take the idea and run . . . laughing all the way, while she throws gasoline on the flames. I admit to testing ideas on her first, in case they have gone too far afield.
I mentioned my quiltmaking. Present project is to finish a quilt with alphabet blocks colored by the kindergarten class of my grandson, Drew. I have to finish it by next Wednesday morning.
It's all layered up and I will machine quilt the grid, but hand quilt the alphabet letters. This is a fun thing to do with ones grandchildren. This is my third one . . . just one to go, with Ben, who is now 3. I'm anxious to get this one done, so I can work on the other UFO's in my stash . . . which I was foolish enough to list in a journal recently. I'd rather tell my age than how many quilt tops I have going, trying to get them into my quilt top collection.
