Its OCTOBER!! Yeyyy!! I have always loved this month!! Not just because its my birthday month (*silent clapping*), BUT also because its just soooo beautiful this time of the year! Its like, everything starts falling into place. The air changes and so does the feel …. you get the picture 🙂
For me, this is also a sign, that I need to get into my busy bee mode and finish all the projects, I’d hoped to complete this year! Not just sewing, but anything and everything, that I have been delaying- for no good reason 😛
Crazy quilting is something I absolutely adore!!!!! I’m a self taught quilter and crazy quilting was the way I started my quilting adventure. Infact, I didn’t even know I was “Crazy Quilting”, until much later.
This here, is one of the very first pieces I made.. Its nothing extravagant, but it sure took a lot of work 🙂
It soothes me 🙂 Reminds me of a -very VERY long time ago- day, when I was playing with my toys and my grandmother sat nearby, sewing away… … The patterns remind me of my sweet mommy, who would come check my size, for a pretty frock she’d be making for me, while I sat oblivious to the joys of sewing.
When I tell my mom, that I made a quilt or I sewed a dress, she laughs it off, simply because its impossible, for her to believe, I can do that. “You don’t know how to sew!!”- is what she says. Thanks to whats app, she has seen, most of my creations and is still amazed, that I’m the one behind, some such babies 🙂 Including the one giant quilt, I gifted her this year, for her birthday!
Well…. I guess somethings don’t need any training…. you just pick them up… in the winds of October 😉
