Let's Go.

It's about time.

I kicked a mattress out of my house and declared the empty space my sewing room. Mr. Pins was completely supportive of this, even though time and money had been spent to get the mattress in the room in the first place. Oops.

I've been married for six months now, and threats to renew the quilting hobby I began ten years ago have been carried out. My fabric crafts have not been completely contained to the sewing room since the transformation, but it's an improvement. Certainly the room is seeing lots of crafting. I may have wandered in there this morning and picked up some scissors even before I brushed my teeth. So I have a craft problem. The first step is admitting it right?

Once the post-wedding chaos had subsided earlier this summer, I poked around online to find out what had been going on in the world of quilting. 

Wow. So the internet has changed some things. 

While I have definitely been a web-loving gal since the mid 90s, the internet was not part of my quilting experience when I started in 2001. Now it seems like the web is creating a strong sense of community between younger quilters all over the world, and I'm so glad to become a part of it!

To connect with local quilting folks, I quickly joined up with the Austin Modern Quilt Guild and have met amazingly talented folks.

I can't wait to show you what I've been working on since my return to quilting. I'm almost done with a donation quilt for the The Central Texas Wildfire Quilt Drive put together by Modern Day Quilts. Here's a sneak preview!

  1. yay! the internet is crazy, aint it. i've learned so so so much in less than a year! sorry, i'm stalking your blog from start to finish, hehe! it seems like it'd be really great to have actual people to converse with about quilting (you know, ones that aren't being forced, hehe) i might have to go hook up with the Kansas City MQG one of these days. :D
