A question from my cousin
My cousin, Malinda, left the following as a comment on my last post. I wanted more of you to see it, so I copied it to a new post. Don't let her fool you, she is very artistic and talented. She makes gorgeous quilts. If you have any suggestions for her, just leave them as comments, or email me and I'll get it to her. Thanks
I need some suggestions and I have no doubt that you ladies can help me. Your entries amaze me,excite me, and inspire me. I have been sewing since I was a little girl, having sons, I did not continue my art through all these years as Julia did with her daughters. Now, my favorite craft is quilting. My older son is getting married to a precious young lady that is fitting into our family like a charm. We are so blessed and thrilled. My husband spent more time and money on her Christmas gift than on anyone else's.
She mentioned that she was thinking about having something other than a guest book for her wedding guests to sign. I am searching for ideas of what I could make for her. I have seen pillows, wall hangings, bed quilts. I plan to discuss this with her soon, but would like to have some ideas from the creative perspective to offer as suggestions. I appreciate any input you can give me. I want this to be very special to her and to our son. Thanks, Aunt Malinda
I am a grandmommma who loves to sew. I also love any creative outlet that I can express myself in, such as painting, drawing, sherenshnitte, and writing. I am the "baby girl" of my mother who is in a nursing home. I wish I could get into her head to understand what is going on in there sometimes. I will reflect upon my observations, therefore, using this as a therapy of sorts for myself.
