    That's awesome. My daughter is pushing 30 and getting interested. I got her a second hand machine to get her started and gave her some fabrics.

    Take heart, I do stained glass too and was never interested in quilting until recently. An extended stay with my sister in Ithaca, as well as a little encouragement on her part got me started. She taught me to sew, at 60 years old, image that. Quilting is very much like doing the designs for stained glass, in fact I have several designs I want to make in the future that were originally stained glass designs. So keep your chin up, anything is possible, lol.

    My daughter has Art and Photography majors, so she helps (sometimes) with putting colors together. I would love to teach her how to quilt, but her creative interests are elsewhere. My DIL is just starting to get into the beginning processes of quilting and has been asking about the "how to's" of putting blocks together, which makes me so happy.

    Penny, I do stained glass, also. Absolutely love doing it, but need to make a larger workspace in the basement because everything gets so spread out.

    I know what you mean about the space. When we moved here in 2004 we started to build a house and it is still not finished. The shell is done and we are just now starting to do the finish work downstairs. On really nice days I will go out into one of the rooms downstairs and work on my glass. I do my quilting on an ironing board in the room I am in now where my computer is. Once we get the downstairs closed in I am going to have a long shelf made in the big garage we have. It is really nice and will be heated so I can make all the mess I want and have plenty of room to work. I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!.

    Just another quick note. I remember when I was in my 20's and 30's (even my 40's) My mom use to make crocheted afagan quilts and do needle point on them. She woud sit for hours and hours working her fingers off and I use to wonder what she saw in all that work. I never had the patience to do that kind of thing and thought it was boring. Thank goodness she was able to get me to sit still long enough to teach me to crochet and I still do it to this day. Made a lot of baby blankets that way. I think your age has a lot to do with it as well as were you are in your life. Me I worked all my life except for the first 3 year after my son was born. Now I am retired and can enjoy all these hobbies.
