Why I Quilt...

Tap this thing on? Anybody out there?

I can't believe I finally got around to starting my own blog. I've been following blogs for years and just never thought I could do it. Well, we'll just see about that.

This blog is a showplace for my quilting. Quilting is the one activity I can do that cannot be "undone" by anyone in my house. I can sweep the floor and someone comes tracking in with muddy boots. I can wash the clothes, but we all have to change clothes and that means dirtying them up again. I can cook a fabulous meal but then we eat and then there's the clean up. I can clean the bathrooms...well, you know what happens there. That is all part of the cycle of life, the day to day living.

But quilting, well, quilting is ALL MINE. I can design. I can create. I can think. I can work with my hands. I can escape. I love it! Then, best of all, I have something I can hold in my hands, wrap around my children, give to an expecting mother, cover the bed, or just treasure for the rest of my life.
