I started embroidering bookmarks, napkin holders and squares. I got huge bags of multicoloured thread from the store I always said I would not shop at because they moved in and began putting all the Canadian versions of the same sort out of business. They must put something in the company Kool-aid because I over heard a woman tell a sales person there that she loved her.
When it came time for the same person to help me I said, “I like you. I can’t say I love you, yet…” and she responded, “I love you! Jesus loves you too!”
I didn’t want to argue, she hadn’t told me where I could find the article I was looking for yet, but she was not creepy about the whole thing like some religious people are. Sometimes I think people go out of thier way to convert me. I am constantly looking like I need to be saved I guess. But in all fairness I invited it by trying to be funny. Religion could cure me of my odd sense of humour. I have no doubt!
Any hoooooooooooooooo, I started to make squares with butterflies and then squares with flowers until I had a nice pile of squares. Then came the suggestion: “Why not quilt?”
I am telling you, this is the road to addiction. Start out with some harmless embroidery and next thing you know you are quilting! (The other day I heard about tapestry making!) Come to think of it, I do try to get other people interested and I’m thinking I could start to sell my patterns. It’s not a grow op, it’s a sew op!
