Winter Poem

Winter Again

© Steve Katz
another winter has come
your head and hands go numb
looking forward to the frost and snow
nights spent near the fire watching the embers glow
the cat snuggled in tight curl
a nice mug of warm chocolate
thaws out my nose and brings life back to my toes
as I climb the wooden hill 
I think of all the nice things I like about this time of year

Quilt Baby Quilt !

I must admit, I always used to dismiss the  idea of quilting !! why ???  because I found quilting  very stressful :(  I know how to sew very well, but  what used to discourage me from quilting is the accuracy of my work.. I used to get  stressed about , will I get the squares aline with each others, or will I be able to stitch the fabric at the accurate seem allowance??  I often heard the phrase ( quilting is  easy) countless of times but I felt I will never get it right !... So I took the plunge and decided to start quilting, I choose the easiest way possible to start ,,  simple squares, and I was determine to do my best to get  the seem allowance right ... LOL .. and here  is the result..  I am in the first grade of quilting , and hopefully  I will do well. 

 Next post I will show you what did I do with these squares .. See you next post :)
