So it begins...

So I've been crafting more and more lately...
Since I had my girls, I have been drawn to all things handmade in various forms. I've become a big fan of digiscrapping, and less so of paper scrapbooking...I've been quilting more, experimenting more.
Even before my two littlest blessings, I was into handmade anything...
When Lewis and I became engaged, I sought the help of the amazing BrendaLou, who taught me to quilt in order to create a wedding gift for my intended. My girls Liz and Hillary created quilts along with me...we made samplers from Around the Block With Judy Hopkins. This was my first quilt...but there have been many since. Tablerunners, tree skirts, wall hangings, napkins, etc., etc.
I've loved making doll clothes for my girls, Halloween costumes, and other miscellany. I haven't ever taken pictures of my quilts I make or give away, but I think it's time to start keeping track! I adore reading others' crafty now I'm jumping on the bandwagon and seeing how crafty this Mama can be!
