My avatar is me just a "couple" years ago on graduation from high school. I refuse to tell what year! I am disabled due to a car accident and lost my part-time job so I have been hunting for a way to add to my income. I love to sew and made my first quilt (all by hand) about 2 months ago. I have been sewing since 8th grade and made lots of clothes. Also enjoy counted cross stitch, actually most any crafts appeal to me. I enjoy the process of taking "pieces" and making a "whole". I also love color and one of my favorite parts of quilting is selecting the fabrics from the many available. I decided to try my hand at quilting and selling my product. Wish me luck and I already am enjoying the "quilting world" and have met some wonderful people who are encouraging. I should add that I am a perfectionist so that helps when keeping corners and seams straight! I am off to cut pieces for my next project. I have a cat who is my chief assistant and holds the fabric down in case of a stiff breeze! He loves to be in the middle of everything I do and is a great joy in my life. That is enough for now.
