    Hi!!

    My name is Monique, I am in Round Rock, TX. A schoolmate of mine taught me how to sew about 3 months ago. I made a quilt out of some table runners my grandmother had. I am really happy I was able to do something "creative" to preserve something of hers in this way.

    Look forward to getting to know the board!!

    Monique

    Lovely. This is a good way to remember our past, and it will be loved for many more years.
    I would suggest that for future generations you put on a label detailing everything you've said here.

    I did put a label on it just yesterday because I was trying to think of a name for it. I "whipped stitched" it on and it is named "Momo's Memories" I have several of her aprons and doilies that I will do this with. Because it is in memory of my grandmother, it will be a "series" if you will until I get them completed. I do appreciate the welcome wagon as well as the compliments. I am touched!

    Welcome from "on the road", originally Houston, Tx. Lucky you to live in such a beautiful part of my home state. I think your idea to preserve family history is fabulous. Hope you enjoy the board and get a lot of good tips and ideas. I tend to get to many ideas!
