However, SURPRISE!!! Today it IS about quilting. Well, sort of!
|Small Scale Quilting|
I have been trying to crochet to fill the void, however, and no disrespect to those amazing crocheters out there, it is just NOT the same and I miss my cutting table, fabric, sewing machines so much and each time we venture to storage, I want to bring them all home and I cannot!
This IS to the best of my knowledge, a permanent move. A decision that I know was and is right for our family even if it has been extremely difficult due to what we have been through financially, mentally, physically and heart breaking!!! Sadly, it isn't over yet!
Throughout the entire ordeal, I have just wanted to quilt -or- go to Montana, but that is a story for another day!
As you can see, I decided somehow, I can quilt in a 5th wheel, I can make this work, so I purchased a very small 6" cutting mat on EBay, an 'Add a Quarter Inch ruler,' (also from EBay), then headed to JoAnn's and picked up 2 rotary cutters (Buy 1, get one free!! WhooHoo!!!) and a small bundle of fabric.
I hope to start out with something small and if anyone has any patterns, old quilt magazines you would like to send me with ideas, I am open to it.
While I have been invited to share in several guilds and organizations that quilt, I am just NOT sure I am ready to be a part of group at this time.
I still believe in my heart, God has THIS. Whatever THIS is and however it ends, my families life will never be the same, but God is so good and I believe quilting is my prayer line and my life line at times.
