Getting back into hand sewing

Posted by on November 10, 2012 at 4:53 pm.

Today, my daughter and I attended an even at out Lutheran Church, one of the ladies (M) and I spent a lot of time talking about the various crafts she does, naturally crochet, knitting, and sewing came up from myself. It turns out she’s a sewer too, and we spent a bit of time swapping sewing stories, and talking about the various projects we’ve done.

Look at all the colorful spools of quilters thread.

 

It turns out she’s a hand quilter! Now that had me interested, since I’ve expressed an interst in it before, and I’ve slowly started acquiring tools needed for creating hand-sewn quilts. Even better, is that she designs her own quilts, now that I think about it I vaguely remember her bringing one of herย hand sewn quilts to the quilters group, it was gorgeous.

Naturally I asked her a ton of questions, which she seemed more than happy to ask. I left the event so fired up, that I promptly purchased quilters thread. Now, I’m not the type that gets fired up, and lets a project languish. I’ll eagerly awaiting my thread. Tomorrow after church, or sometime early next week, I’ll stop by Jo An Fabrics and take a look at their fat quarters. According to M, they have a nice selection there.

This morning, I finished knitting a slouch beanie hat for one of my daughter’s Monster High dolls. I used some of the scrumptious yarn that arrived from Knit Picks. I’ll be sure to post a picture of the hat, and the lovely yarn soon.
