I’m the last post in our Blog Block giveaway. I hope you enjoyed seeing the blocks of the book, “Memories of Christmas Past”. And now a little bit about me – I love almost all types of needlearts and have done quite a few. My love began with simple embroidery and moved on to counted cross stitch,needlepoint, crewel, hardanger, blackwork, redwork, drawn thread, canvas work and just about anything that took a needle with an eye. If it was handwork, I gave it a try. Quilting was one of the last things I learned to do and that was back in the late 1970’s. I enjoyed it and experimented with different techniques. Two of my favorites are hand applique and paper piecing, very different techniques. It makes total sense I would love hand applique because of my love of hand work. And I love paper piecing because I love any of the quilt blocks with sharp points such as Mariner’s Compass, New York Beauty or Pickle Dish. They are my favorites and I love paper piecing because its the only time I am absolutely accurate! I opened my shop in 2004 and I love everything about owning a quilt shop well…..except maybe book work ! Boredom never happens here because there is always something new to try and I love experimenting with new techniques and new fabrics. What better place to be ! And of course, I love seeing my customers and hearing about their projects and meeting new people from all over !
