There are many things I want to do and learn. Sewing is one of them. While I was in Spokane, a friend (thanks Heidi) gave me her sewing machine. I love this! What a perfect time for me to learn. So, on New Year's Eve I began a quilt for Callie. Technically, I suppose, I started it in Spokane. There's no way I could have done this alone (not that I'm d o n e).
So ladies....here's a shout out to you. Without Heidi Heath, I wouldn't have a sewing machine, and my dream would only be a dream. Without Robyn Bischoff, I couldn't have created my pattern. Without Amanda Pope, I would have bought fabric that didn't go well together. Who knew you needed to think about mixing big prints with smaller prints? I sure didn't. It makes sense, but I didn't know that intuitively. Without Holly Knighton, there's NO WAY I would have been able to cut out all my fabric before leaving Spokane -- or cut it out correctly. You most definitely saved my life here Holly. You're ssssure ssspecial. And without Annie Green, I wouldn't have known how to use my sewing machine. Sure, I could have read books, read instruction manuals, figured it out on my own...but who wants to take the time to do that? Not me. I've never been one to research things out before I jump into it. Not a good trait, but oh well. That's who I am. Thanks Dad. I think I get that from you. Who needs instructions right? I'm pretty confident I'll need help along the way by others, or some of these same wonderful ladies, so thank you from Jenny -- and denk du from Callie -- as it will become her bedspread for her big girl bed. I just wish I could bring this project with me to craft night at Amanda's. Are you still doing that by the way?
