I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

what exactly have i been up to?
Sales of the reproduction fabrics at my friends quilt shop have not been terribly good. The weekend I went to visit she mentioned that another sample besides the tote bag I made would give people more ideas. I'm going to make a small wall hanging with probably 4 blocks from Jo Morton's Prairie Flowers book.
I love repro fabrics so I need to get them selling so she can continue to carry them. :cD
I've mostly been working on some extracurricular Christmas activities at my job. I'll post more on that later when things are out of the planning stages and I have some pictures.

weekends should be longer
I didn't get a chance to get any cooking done ahead this weekend, but I had a very good reason. I spent the weekend with my friend Jan. I had agreed to teach a hand applique class on Saturday. She has been unable to find anyone else since I moved so if she gives me enough time to plan and enough students I go up for a weekend. I had so much fun. I taught a class, bought some patterns, picked up some fabric to make a couple of samples, ate way too many goodies and had a great time catching up with Jan. I just love discussing ideas for her shop. I live vicariously through her. :cD Her job is way more fun than mine.
