Escape From Reality..........
the View From My Scrappy Mind!
My newest lecture and trunk show happened last night at Nimble Thimbles Quilt Guild in Mauldin, South Carolina. It was great to get to speak to the 47 members and 2 visitors about using scraps in your quilts and systems used for storing and sorting scraps of fabric.
Our world is a crazy place right now and quilting has always been my refuge from the stress of everyday life. As a nurse for 33 years, I deal with life and death on an ongoing basis so having a way to escape from that stress is essential to my sanity. My quilt studio is that escape. Being able to go into the studio and immerse myself in fabric, patterns, and projects is a true blessing. Do you have an hobby that you too can escape from the daily stress of life?
I always enjoy getting to speak to quilters about my love of the process of making a quilt. I believe everyone should quilt!
As Jenny Doan says, A quilt is such a precious gift. It represents so much time and care. When you wrap up in a quilt that has been made just for you, it is as if each stitch is there to remind you that you are loved! I hope you have many opportunities to experience the magic of giving and receiving such a precious handmade gift.
