A ramble of a post
I know I have been away for a while. My oldest daughter started school Friday and as you can expect it was a cry fest on the kindergarten hall. She did real good on the first and the second day but this morning she held on so tight, and she did not want to let me leave. To explain a little more her classroom is on the back hall of the school and so she asked me to walk her to class and she asked me to eat breakfast with her today and after I walked her back to her room and she was determined that I was not going to leave. I feel like such a bad mom because I left her crying in her class. Ok I wall get on with the real reason that you read this blog. I have been crafting alot over the past few days just to keep my mind off of her being away from me. I picked up the book Fabric Art Journals, by Pam Sussman, and the current issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. Both of them has inspired me so much that I started a mini Applique quilt and I hoep to be able to complete one per week while she is in school. This quilt is title "hope" I do not know whay this came in my mind but it did and so that is the name that stuck. It is almost complete. I have the top appliqued and now I am adding embroidery to it in the form of seed stitches and the word HOPE. The Background fabric is White Muslin.
