If any of you are quilters out there, I admire you! It’s a lot harder work than I thought. I’ve now started over three times on our mountain home blue and white quilt because I couldn’t get the colors right. I think I’ve finally gotten it, though. My faithful Kenmore 12 Stitch sewing machine that I got for Christmas from my parents in 1990 started making a funny squeaky sound last week so I had to have it serviced. I’m a bit embarrassed to say this, but in the 28 years I’ve had it, I’ve never had it serviced!
I know how bad that sounds and how terrible it is for the machine. The repairman told me he loves these old Kenmore sewing machines because they last so long and are such great machines. Now that mine’s been serviced, it acts brand-new, and I’ll definitely take better care of it! Now that I won’t need to start over again, I’m hoping to make more progress on it.
The reason I decided to make this quilt in the first place is because I want our mountain home to be a place of craftsmanship. Whether that’s the quilts that cover the beds, the embroidered wallhangings that decorate the walls, the custom-designed china hutch, or the bespoke door headers, this home will showcase artistry in all its forms. I’m so excited about it! I’ll be sharing all the details as they unfold during the design process.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
