I’ve been admiring all the quilting blogs that are currently out there. So much inspiration! My time has been spent doing lot’s of things over the years. I’m a mother to three daughters who are now all in their 20s. My career was as a registered nurse and I was fortunate enough to be able to work part time instead of full time while my girls were growing up. Those were busy years! Marriage, work, church, dance lessons (my girls, not me), Girl Scouts, volleyball, band, and a lovable golden retriever thrown into the mix.
Somehow I have always found time to sew. Why? Because I have three daughters! My sister has two daughters and my brother has one (and one son – the only male cousin). I learned to sew in home economics in 7th grade and have always loved to make things. I learned to smock when my oldest daughter was a baby. My girls and nieces grew up in smocked dresses (as did their dolls). Or at least wore them until about the age of 8 or 9 when they no longer wanted them. I even learned how to do french hand sewing by machine (talk about an oxymoron) so they also had fancy lace dresses for special occasions.
I found the time to sew back then, in between everything else that was going on. But I never really felt as though I had time. Dare I risk jinxing myself now? Because I feel as though I finally have time . . .
