I wanted to make a crazy quilt so that I could learn hand embroidery, and have something to do during the many hours we watch TV. Well, I guarantee that this will be no easy task. I have enough learning to do to get me through the next few seasons of American Idol!!!!
I’ll admit, I thought of just doing the embroidery on my Janome, which boasts 150+ decorative stitches. However that doesn’t solve the “need handwork in front of the TV” issue, so I’m going to continue with my original plan.
I also finished listening to “The Aloha Quilt” by Jennifer Chiaverini. What a treat! I had such a great day sewing and listening to this wonderful book on CD. I felt like I had my own personal quilt retreat. I’m looking forward to reading and/or listening to the other books in the Elm Creek Quilters series.
