I love to sew. I have been sewing since I was old enough to hold a needle in my hand and thread it. Now days I work outside the home so it's hard to find time to sit and sew as I used to when my kids were younger and I was a stay home mom. When I do find time, I find it relaxing. I love quilting and sewing crafts. Quilting is my favorite because shapes and techniques are endless and you decide where you want to go with the stitching.
