To be fair, there has been nothing I felt like blogging about last year. My free time was taken up by a quilt. A quilt I didn't want to do. An unsatisfying quilt(to me).
You see, back at the end of 2014, My aunt purchased an Amish quilt top. She asked me to put it together for her. I don't enjoy doing this type of work, but after much persuasion and negotiation, I agreed.
I don't like to work that way. It's not enjoyable for me to finish someones work. But, she's family. A bit easier for me to back down on my firm NO!
To make matters worse, my sister was pregnant and begged me to make her an entire layette about 1.5 months before her daughter was born. So right when I finally get some momentum going on the Amish quilt, I had to stop and work on baby things because the baby was coming soon. Guess what? I STILL need to make a bed skirt and a baby quilt :O. But I had to stop that project because, well, she was born, and my aunt was becoming impatient.

Well, I FINALLY got the king size Amish quilt top FINISHED!!!!!! YAY!!! Huge burden lifted!
To bring you to current events, I'm making a quilt for my daughter's room that we are planning to re do. I will blog about that later. Yesterday I made my first public appearance!! I was asked by a colleague to take part of an around the world folk art bazaar for charity at one of the elementary schools at the school corporation I work for. It was my first public appearance :)
I did a quilting demo for free motion quilting and had some of my quilts on display. It was fun to see little ones, both girls AND boys interested in what I was doing. I wish I had gotten some pictures, especially of this one little girl who already had her own sewing machine! LOVE TO HEAR THAT!!!!!
