When my daughter began preparing to leave home for college, it occurred to me that I didn't do too much else other than parent her and my son. In order to avoid epic empty nest syndrome I figured I'd better find a hobby and fast! One day, as I trolled the aisles of Costco, I spied a Brother sewing machine on sale. I even had a coupon for it in my little book. Destiny! I would teach myself to sew and quilt beautiful quilted blankets for friends and family. Easy right? Follow me on this tangled journey where my seam ripper has become my best friend.
