About 17 years ago after having our first child, I became a stay at home mom. I found that I had a lot of free time in the beginning, nap time. I started to sew baby clothes, aprons and baby bedding. After awhile I tried quilting and that was it for me. Now I am more inclined to reach for a sewing pattern, sewing bags and knitting beaded shawls. More recently I have discovered a love for watercolor painting.
