I enjoy collecting antique quilts and making reproductions of them both big and small. I've made a few baskets and I'd like to make more. I dabble in knitting and would love to learn rug hooking, but it's hard to find time to do it all. I work in higher education and I love my job. However, I do spend a lot of time dreaming about quilts.
I've been missing for months from blogland and miss seeing what others are making and collecting along with doing my own quilting. I was busy helping to prepare for one of my biggest days as a mother - the wedding of my oldest son. The big day went off splendidly last Saturday so indulge me as I show him off just a tiny bit. Here he is with his beautiful bride!
This one is a little dark (cell phone). My younger son is in the best man position and he said that this was the moment it "got real" for his brother. I have to say, the best man killed it with his speech. Brought many of us to tears which is my measure of a good wedding toast.
Just had to share this picture of the delicious crabs we had at the rehearsal dinner. What a fun time to share with our families before the big day. Plus, no Maryland Eastern Shore event is complete without the tasty crustaceans.
Tonight I cut more pieces for my stars and get back to hand stitching tomorrow. The weather has turned cooler and I look forward to cleaning up my sewing space and spending Sundays watching football and stitching.
