Welcome to my new blog and to my stitching cottage :D
This little cottage was originally built, out the back door and across our driveway, about 75 years ago as a chicken coop...yes! a chicken coop!
But while raising 2 boys and with all their "toys" Mama needed a place to sew.
My very smart and talented husband came up with the brilliant idea of transforming our little coop into a wonderful little sewing cottage!
My life has always been very full with some sort of stitching. I started out sewing flannel leopard print pajamas when I was 10 years old and the rest is history. After many years of being a seamstress and cross-stitcher, I bloomed into a quilt-maker, knitter and wool spinner (I have loved spinning wheels ever since I was a little girl). I still "dabble in" cross-stitching, although I must admit that linen count is getting a little rough on the eyes.
Here is my latest accomplishment in the quilting realm.
This is a table runner designed by Kim Diehl, that I hand appliqued, machine pieced and quilted.
One of my favorites types of quilt making is hand applique, I really just love it, the entire process of it and try to do as much as my fingers allow.
I'm looking forward to sharing some more of my stitching adventures with you in the near future and I am also very much looking forward to hearing from you and seeing what you are stitching! :D
Yours in Stitches,
