My machine is home!

My dear friend Dawn at Associated Sewing came through for me and got my machine done earlier than expected! I was able to go and pick it up Friday. I spent the afternoon yesterday quilting the blue spiderweb quilt and machine stitching the binding onto both the blue spiderweb quilt and the pink and aqua floating four patch quilt. I am now ready to sit down and hand stitch for a while. Those two will be finished then. :)

I have been thinking about starting a new blog along side this one. It would be very basic sewing instruction and just sharing what I have learned through my experience. My mom gave me the basics, but after that I am pretty much self taught. The idea came to me because a friend on Facebook suggested that I come to her house and teach her to sew while my machine was in the shop. I couldn't because she lives in another state, but it gave me the idea that i could put up a blog that would teach the basics.
What do you think?

Oh yes, please, please, do! My Mamaw taught me to sew when I was young but it has been a while and she is no longer here to refresh me! I would love to get some basic directions! I just love your blog!
