I like to make the most of the day, and try not to be the grump in the world even if part of my day is going badly or something odd is happening. That being said, a perfectly happy day can suddenly go sour when u get that weird eerie feeling inside. Kind of bone chilling, irritating, the kind of feeling that makes u want to do one of three things..
1. slap someone
2. go back to bed
3. scream and than have a drink/eat something greasy
or maybe u want to do all three because of the feeling..that's understandable too. slap someone, scream order fries and a beer..than go to bed...perfect..
I have that feeling right now. I was having a great day, happy, sunny, slept in, had a coffee..good day..than suddenly turned sour..trying to make it sweet again..but dang its hard. Its weird how just the littlest thing said by someone, or that you hear about can do that to a perfectly good day. Maybe my skin isn't thick today, maybe I am being to sensivite..maybe..but really i don't think that's it..i think its just me and that feeling is here because its supposed to be..and will always come back at times like today..
Anyway...that's that....just needed to vent i think. Do you ever feel that way suddenly in the middle of a perfectly good day?

Anyway, why quilting? i am still not really sure, but I think it has to do with the ability to create something with my hands from scratch. Every element of the quilt i get to decide on, from the fabric choices to the shapes, to the binding, to the backing to the actually quilting design. Love it. Also there are some pretty cool fabrics out there I never knew existed until recently.
Now first thing I should bring up is I am basically teaching myself via the blogging world. While I am good with shapes, colors, and design I am horrible with math and I have had only a small amount of time spent on a sewing machine growing up. I do not come from a long line of quilters, or anything like that. I believe my mom has made 2 that i know of in her life. Her sewing experience has been more on the clothing and decorating side of things. Anyway, needless to say as i go on my way with this addiction I am learning ALOT!!!
So how did this all start...about 2 years ago i told my mom i wanted to make a tee shirt out of all my sorority shirts... so we researched and together figured out how to do it. The quilt was about half way done with this happened... yep i got engaged. So not surprising, i was suddenly not interested in planning and making a quilt but instead planning my wedding..and on the side buying a house...so finally this happened.. yay i am married...but the house wasnt done yet..so we still had this... and since i am the one with the good taste(dont tell jason i said that) i spent alot of time picking out everything...
I will admit..i took this quilt apart over 3 times at different stages to fix mistakes i didn't know i made. Its alot of work and if i had any advice for anyone wanting to make a quilt..I would say dont start with the tee-shirt! its harder than a normal one and HUGE!!!!
Anyway..thats how i got atticted to quilting..the first of many more quilting entries i am sure..
