A few years ago (almost a decade ago), I decided to give up my needle handwork. The eyes were giving me trouble and the hands were in pain–all old age (and I was only in my 40’s !!!). So I took up Quilting for my creative outlet. You don’t need keen eye-sight able to magnify 10x for 32-count linen nor do you need crab-like hands able to hold hoop, needles, and manipulate thread.
I find I do tend to give away all of the quilts I make. I think I only have 3 in the house today (my couch quilt, my hubby’s couch quilt, and a mystery quilt my guild sponsored a few years ago). Everything else is a WIP (work in progress), UFO (un-finished object–anything, any size), or already designated for someone else.
So I won’t have a lot of photos, initially, on my blog because it’s all… Gone!
However, here is a picture of Lindsay’s quilt. Her request was “Something in Black, White, and Pink”. She’ll be getting this for Christmas. (I’m in the final stages–hand-sewing the binding on.)
Luv ya, Linzy-poo!! ~Auntie K
