One of my favorite things to do during the winter is to sit down with my latest project and watch a movie. That includes knitting projects, quilting and embroidery...basically anything to keep my hands busy. I've always loved quilting, it was my first foray into sewing. For as long as I can remember I've always wanted to learn to hand quilt.
I think hand quilting is something of a dying art. I know lots of older women quilt at churches, but I never see young people. I've always wanted to learn to hand quilt from these women, but they meet during the day when I have to work. So, I just keep working on my little lap quilt that I started and finessing my stitches. Taking the time to do something slowly and with intention is so rewarding. Can't wait for this quilt to be done!
