I was so excited when I found out that my son and his wife were expecting! I could barely control myself from telling the whole world. Unfortunately. I wasn’t allowed to tell anyone. They told us when she was a couple of months pregnant, and I needed to wait a whole month before I could share the wonderful news with anyone.
I was pretty good. My son happened to call me when I was in the car with my friend, so of course she found out when I did. I swore her to secrecy. She was true and no one found out until they were supposed to.
In the mean time, I needed an outlet for my excitement. I found it in my sewing machine. It was actually not in my sewing machine, but in my daughter’s machine. It’s good that she had a machine. It made the entry level into sewing a quilt much easier.
I started by looking up quilts on the internet. I found one that I really liked, but had no idea how to make it. There was no pattern. I just took some fabric and started sewing. I made my own.
Looking at the quilt, if I were to do it again, there are so many things that I would do differently. That said, it came out pretty good. It was definitely a good start.
