Well, let me start by saying thank you for taking you time and checking out my blog, hopefully it will be worth your valuable time.
For my first blog post I would like to share a bit about myself.
My name is Ginny, I am the daughter of Kathy. I grew up on a little island in the Puget Sound.
My mom use to sew and I remember her making my clothing when i was about 10 or so. As I grew up, I took a couple of basic sewing classes but soon discovered that I HATED making clothing. So for many years I did many other crafts. I have dabbled in Kumihimo, Cross Stitch, Beading, Gardening, and Miniature painting to name just a few. I have also been an avid Photographer for most of my life, matter of fact went to an art institute and majored in photography. All in all I would say that my leanings have always been creative and visual.
After the birth of my first daughter I was a stay at home mom for many years, and to help out financially I started an in home daycare. I am currently a licensed child care provider. (I am sure that I will address more on that later).
So back to quilting. About 3 1/2 years ago I became interested in machine embroidery, Oh I do enjoy it also, taught my self how to digitize patterns, and one day while playing around online I found a site (threads that bind us) that had in the hoop paper pieced quilt squares. I purcahsed a pattern, tried it, made a small quilt and fell in love.
Not with paper piecing, turns out I do not like paper pieceing at all! But it did get me started down the quilters road, now almost two years later here I am, a self taught quilter. I am still learning, every quilt I try I learn something new.
My latest projects have been...
my daughters birthday quilt
I have also been working on a quilt for my younger
daughter, I will have to post pictures of it soon, I am a bit stuck
on the quilting aspect of it. But thats another blog.
Well, duty calls and I need to end this. Again, thank you for looking and I hope you will find your way back.
Signing off for now.
