Hi I am new to quilting and am feeling a little discouraged. I am wondering if I started learning this new hobby to late in life. I took care of my mother for 12 years, she was unable to walk or care for herself. She passed away on my birthday July 23, 2011. After she passed I have just felt so disconnected to anything, so I started taking a quilting class in Sept. of 2011. I will be 60 this July 23 and I'm just unsure about what I should do, I enjoy quilting but is this a hobby that should be started
My blog is mainly my quilts here at the cottage. I am self taught, use the web for ideas and just have at it. Not fancy stuff too much but lots of fun doing my quilts.
Lots of stuff on this Board, am glad I found it.

put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a
cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B

Go to www.quilters.net and scroll down to KIMONO. It cost $10.00 ordered from Australia. I actually got my contact from the POPULAR PATCHWORK QUILTING magazine online through their forum. The designer is Brenda Dean. The Kimono is actually only about 2 by 3 inches. I increased the pattern measurements to 165% which was a 6 1/2 by 22 inche piece of material. Here is an orignal one I did first for my granddaughter.

I feel much better now and really like how the room now looks.

I am new to this site. Actually just found it a couple days ago by total accident while surfing the web for free quilt patterns. I never knew a place like this existed !!! But now I'm hooked !! I have been a quilter for a several years, but have just recently began to do more of it. I also knit, crochet, and embroidery. I stay busy and are hardly ever bored.
I just finished piecing a table runner for my mom for Christmas. Haven't got any pictures yet. I will try to get a couple posted
