The Sewing Begins... England side of the pond :)
I'm finally settled enough to start blogging. Not sure why I feel the need to, but here goes... This past February, while watching the Olympics and chatting on Facebook, I added Quilting Blogs to my online activity, starting with my niece's blog, A Quarter Inch From the Edge. Thanks to Jenn (she'll always be Jennifer to me), I've found my newest obsession... Quilting.
I've done a lot of sewing over the years. With four kids, there were always Halloween costumes, play clothes and dresses to be made. I even made a few simple 12 inch block 'quilts', but no actual quilting went into them, just straight line sewing.
Knowing that I would soon be travelling to the other side of the pond, I refrained from jumping in with both feet and just read, planned, researched, signed up for and generally 'computer obsessed' about quilting. Fun in it's own right, I might add :)
Now, I'm a week on England's side of the pond, and the sewing has begun :) Well, a lot of cutting, piecing and ironing at least.
