I'm Laura from St Paul. I am finally taking a huge break from clothing sewing kids are out of the house now and way too picky to sew for). I just finished my first queen sized quilt and am ready for more. I forgot how relaxing it is to spend the day with my sewing machine. I also am a self-taught knitter, am trying to divide up the time to get all the projects done. Yarn stash and fabric stash are about equal an need to get smaller, at least it's winter up here and way too cold to do much outside.
