I often claim to have a Quilting "Hobby" in attempts to hide my obsession with fabric and color.

Winter Geese Sold!

Again, it has been far too long since I posted last, but sadly, I feel there is so little I can post right now.  I have several projects in front of me, but I cannot post any of them because they are commissioned quilts and I can't ruin the surprise....and for those who know me well, you know the other part of my current life is incredibly personal and not something I want to post here. sigh.

But one good thing I can post about is that my Winters Geese Quilt has gone to a new home!

A former High School classmate and I reconnected some time back on Facebook. I did a quilt for her, and then she ordered several more (one of the two clients I am surprising!). She was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and this hit very close to home for her because she lost her mother to this illness. She has become very motivated to take charge of her health and has decided to be part of a walk to raise money and awareness for Diabetes research. She asked if I could donate a quilt to the cause, and I knew right away Winters Geese was the one! I mean really, who wouldn't want to cuddle up to a colorful, handmade quilt, backed in cuddly soft flannel? She posted it on Ebay, and it received great attention, and several bids, and ultimately a winner!

While I am not getting rich financially in my quilting adventure (yet...?) I have made some amazing new friends, gained some wonderful publicity, and been a a part of several terrific charities. So you could say it has been a wealth finding hobby.

Well, off to the machine...I must justify my fabric obsession some how!
