An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity. There is so much running around involved in taking care of the little guys that live here (my three sweet kiddos – age 4 and under). When I started sewing again a few months ago, I couldn’t believe how satisfying it was – what a void it filled, and now I can’t stop! I am a quilter and a bagaholic – I have made more purses for myself than I’ll be able to use in the foreseeable future and 1 week ago, I bought myself a how-to-knit kit and can’t seem to stop knitting (“Just one more row, boys, then Mommy will start making lunch.”)
Some of my inspiration:
Amy Butler – Her patterns got me started on making bags. And her fabric is beautiful
Michael Miller Fabrics – fresh, new collections all the time! Fun stuff!
Two of my favorite stores:
Cabbage Rose Quilting is my favorite store these days – they carry all of Amy’s fabric and patterns, Moda fabric and have a nice yarn section as well
The Fat Quarter Shop carries a nice selection of fabric. And, they make Jolly Packs.
Let the craft blog begin!
