Dream Reader

Assignment. Write to your dream reader……well, I wish I could.  I would write to my grandmother and share my creations with her and maybe learn some valuable lessons  through her years of experience.   How wonderful to share something you love with the person who inspired you.  I missed that opportunity….but she still inspires me and I am fortunate to have her travel sewing machine….a singer featherweight.

Isn’t she a beauty?

My current sewing project is the Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter.  I am a little behind on that but I did have my daughters wedding and then the holidays to get through.  And a week ago 56 boxes arrived from Singapore that I am trying to unpack. (We moved back to the states). Just finding my way through the house is a challenge.  As my Dad likes to remind me, how do you eat an elephant?  One bite at a time.  Tackle any project that way….just one box at a time….or one block at a time….one clue at a time.  Till it’s done.

Quilt blocks so far….and homework for blogging. Embedding an instagram photo.

It worked!

Today was a gorgeous day here in Alabama.  Took this picture on a little adventure ….more on that later.  Getting on track and staying there!

Assignment two.  Edit your tagline and title.  Ok, but only a little.  I am sharing my quilting and sewing adventures along with whatever life happens and my name is Susan, so for now it works. Here’s my inspiration….

I like vintage (I am vintage) and I have one of these needle cases that was my grandmother’s.

Next assignment.  Explore WordPress.  Working on that now!  The world is my oyster…..blogging leads to such pearls of wisdom.
