Hi, welcome to my very first blog post! I am new to this whole blogging thing so you will have to bear with me as I am currently getting this blog up and running an learning about blogging as I go. I decided to write a blog about my quilting adventures and hope that it can be a tool for others who are just getting started in quilting as well (I wont lie my memory is horrible and this is a good way for me to track all my progress as well!). A little bit about me... I live in Northern New England U.S.A which is beautiful this time of year as everything is starting to come alive again with Spring on the horizon. I have the pleasure of being married to my best friend for more than 9 years, we have 3 wonderful children that brighten our lives everyday.

I started quilting about 8 yrs ago but my experience was limited so I gave up real easy, packed up my fabric and machine an stacked them away in the attic. In July of last year my mother suddenly passed away at a fairly young age. I had all these emotions I did not know how to deal with, as I was packing away some of her belongs into my attic and I seen my stack of quilting supplies. I unpacked them and have been quilting my little heart out ever since. Quilting in a way has helped me work though the mourning process and dealing with the death of my mother. I have always been a crafty person drawing and painting have been my passions, so being able to use those two as I free motion quilt is amazing! Thread is my paint and fabric is my canvas. I have had the opportunity to browse many blogs and sites relating to quilting, sewing and many other crafty projects I have a few favorites that I hope to share with you along my journey. Off to be creative!
Happy Quilting all
