sewing mama

Just before Christmas I learned a new sewing skill or two.  My very sweet neighbor taught me four quilting techniques.

I’ve sneaked down the street a few times as of late.  Not only is her house draped with decades of beautiful quilts, but it’s silent.  It’s good for mama to escape into quiet moments now and then.  Just cheerful chatter and the humming of a sewing machine can refresh even a most filled and exhausted mind, such as this one.

What have you been stitching?
