I am an approaching 50 year old mom and part time bookkeeper who is dealing with empty nest syndrome and caring for aging parents. Sewing and doing other handwork, crafts and knitting has been part of my life since early childhood. My mom always was sewing, cooking and working on projects.
In my early 20's I tackled making quilts for my 3 best friends and a sister in law when they got married. Of course they had to be queen size and cut out by templates and had quilted. All the while being in school for nursing or just starting my career and being a newlywed.
In the past 5 years my desire to quilt has begun again and in the past two years art quilting.
I have learned so much and continue to do so. As with most I just need more hours in a day.
