I’ve been working on a couple of projects. I have started selling baby blankets and burp cloths in a boutique in DeMotte. I’m working on making some children’s clothes to sell also. The really exciting news is that I’m going to be teaching sewing classes. My first one is on May 11th. We’ll be making reversible placemats. I was telling a friend that while it’s exciting, it’s also a bit nerve wracking. She assured me that I would do great, but I don’t think I’ll stop worrying until I actually get it underway. I keep thinking of things that I or the students will need. I just hope I don’t forget anything that day. I’m sure it will turn out fine one way or another.
In other news, my quilt club is having our biennial quilt show this weekend. Our featured quilter was one of the founding members about 20 years ago. Unfortunately, she passed away a couple weeks ago. We’re planning a special display to memorialize her. She was an amazing woman and quilter. One quilt that she restored is even in the Smithsonian. Her name was Jane and she was very generous with her time and talents. She is the person who taught me to quilt. Writing this, I’m realizing that she’s a hero to me and certainly someone to emulate. I will miss her.
I hope to inspire and encourage others to learn to sew and quilt like she did for me and many others, I’m sure.
Have a great day everyone. Spread the love for whatever is your passion so someone else can discover theirs. 🎉🎨🌠
