Hello, Friend Emele!
Thinking and wishing thee God's very best! Our thoughts and prayers are with thee.
Thy humble Friend,
Thank you Emele:
It is a textile lovers canvas - - and some mixes of color are as lovely as any painting. Some we refer to as Quilts only a mother could love because from start to finish they are horrible - - and never redeem themselves no matter what we do. Some are magnificent at the end when all along the path they were awkward. You don't always know until you finish whether it will be a work of art or something you look at and say What was I thinking!!
How sad you never were able to learn from your grandmother's art but I'm sure there are masterful quilters in your area who would be more than happy to show and teach you if you would be interested. My quilts are not masterful nor am I a speed quilter as some I know are. I become enmeshed in the process of the feel and fragrance of the cloth, I'm very slow and meticulous in my measurements and most of my quilts are the product of many scraps of fabric as I don't have lots of yardage of any particular fabric which many quilters seem to have. I generally buy fabric I like when I see it - - not having an idea in mind for it. That way it becomes precious because you don't want to waste or make a mistake.
One of the quilters in our small guild is a smocker. She makes beautiful dresses and christening gowns and such. I don't have that talent. I toyed with the idea once upon a time long long ago. . .but never tried my hand at it.
Thank thee for thy comment, and acceptance of our Friendship request.
Thy page is lovely! Thy dog is too cute! Peace be to thee this day, and always.
Welcome Friend! Jump on in, the water's fine!
