The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

I am exciting to rejoin the quilting industry after a couple years hiatus.  I have spent the last couple years focusing on my family and my now 2 year old son.  I renewed my quilting spirit at the beginning of 2019 with a simple new years resolution to start sewing regularly again.  I hadn’t been completely devoid of sewing in my life.  I made a couple quilts in 2018, but really hadn’t found the right way to balance being a mom and having hobbies (much less trying to make that hobby a small business!)  I’m sure I’ll have more to share on that balance in the future!

My goal for 2019 when I kicked off this year was to make 4 quilts.  I wanted to double the number I had made in the year before.  I felt this was super attainable – giving myself 3 months to create one quilt.  Little did I know that in the first three months I would already have my goal of 4 quilts complete!  I was so thrilled to be back in the sewing saddle again!  I just kept sewing and sewing!  There are a few tools that have really helped me stay motivated and stay on track and I’m excited to share some of those things with you all as well.

Overall, I feel like me again!  Now that I have my quilt goal accomplished, I have decided to expand on my industry participation and start sharing my quilting journey again through Instagram, Facebook, and blog.  Please follow me to join in the journey and share your comments and experiences!  I felt very alone and isolated in my first couple years of motherhood away from the industry I identify with, and the more I see, the more I know I was never alone, I just didn’t know that others were out there sharing the same joys of quilting and motherhood.

I look forward to sharing my projects and journey, and getting to know you along the way!
