Happy Saturday...I'm finally rested and am back on a schedule again...and the boys are so happy! Mom's back...YIPPEE! As you can see from the picture, Howie's not getting too far away...Zack is actually right there too, but just out of the camera frame.
I'm sharing a bit of me today that I've only shared with some very close friends over the past several years...I've decided now that I'm happily 60...is that a woman of age our what...that it's time to get going with a dream that I've had for years. A bit of background...when I had the shop I did patterns for kits and for special events, but there was someone that always insisted on "doing the math" for the patterns...as far as she was concerned I never was very good at that. As a shop owner I was always busy and just let her take care of that...well, I guess somewhere along the line I started to believe that I just couldn't do that. After I retired, several people said that I really should start doing patterns...I politely thanked them for their confidence but I really didn't think I could do that...Hmmmmm...move forward a couple of years, I did a quilt along with Darlene over at Quilting Daze and thought it was so much fun...I was even able to double check the math. Then a year or so later Kelly from Cotton Charm Quilts asked me to do a quilt along with her...she was going to do a small version and I did a large version...I did the math! Got me thinking that maybe there was hope. So now I'm ready to jump in and give it a whirl...I'm going to start out with a quilt that I had so much fun doing
