Hello to any and all who may read this--I'm Tara, 31 year old proud mom of one-two if I can count my husband. I've been voraciously devouring some quilting blogs lately and thought it might be time for me to join this crazy virtual world of the blog.
Mainly because I want you all to think I'm cool. Let me know how I'm doing and maybe you can give me hints--like "hot" or "cold"! Then I can back off or go full bore--is that the right bore?
So.....here's some of what I'm into these days. I'll categorize them into lists of what I'm good, better and best at!
Cleaning--I can do it and do it well, it just doesn't happen very often
Laundry--very much into waiting until it's all dirty to venture near, I have lots of clothes
I'm not really into those things, but I wanted my other categories to be the things I loved! It starts getting better now.
Spinning--had a wheel for 4 years and have never spun enough yarn to do anything with, but I like it
Quilting--I've made a few pillows, and two baby quilts that aren't yet quilted( so that might make me into patchworking
Braided Shepherd's Rugs--My dear husband got me 11 pounds of white roving for me to dye, braid, felt, and then sew together. So far, I've finished a 10" x 7" trivet, and 25 feet of dyed, braided, felted and waiting to be sewn rope. It's just one of my WIPs.
Those are my new hobbies started within the last couple of months. Here's what you've been waitin' for.
Cooking--very proficient in the kitchen, I've actually been called a chef--by my son
Baking--Wedding cakes are my forte, please don't tell anyone that I don't enjoy it--I'd rather be knitting!
Crocheting--Learned in my teens, has been a great springboard for the knitting!
Soap making--7 different recipes made fairly regularly and my own laundry soap to wash my knitting!
Lest I forget....
Knitting--a true passion for me, a true fiber fiend, I'm happy to tink or frog, get it?
So, not to go on and on, but my projects keep me so busy. Ill post some pictures as soon as I take some. What would you like to see?
