New adventures? Sort of. In my spare time I have dusted off my sewing machine and started finishing off projects I started years ago. The first was a quilt I started 10 years ago. I finally finished it, and took it to someone to machine quilt. It is simply too big for a rookie like me to tackle. My next project is a present for my niece I started last spring. I was going to send it away for quilting, but decided I could maybe give it a whirl. While the project is certainly far from perfect, it was fun to do. Finally, I am starting on making baby blankets for the many baby gifts I have to give in the next few months.
In some ways these hobbies make me feel like a little old lady. But what the heck. If it feels good, do it! I know my work will never be perfect; I’m just not that naturally gifted. But, I can say that I’ve put thought into these gifts. I suppose, on the grand scheme of things, it really is the thought that counts.
