Every so often you run across a group of women who are Inspiration Central! The gals at Olde World Quilt Shoppe are such a group. Not only will they help you with a stitching problem, they will help you choose a new project, LOL!...and, maybe they will help you over a fear you might have.
I have always had a zipper phobia...it goes back to Home Ec class where my girlfriend Colleen and I attempted to sew a dress. Let's just say that none of the major clothing designers were banging down our door. What I do have is a desire to make bags, especially thread bags, and this group has the process down pat!
With emotional support, I now have all the pieces needed to make a bag...when, I actually get to the zipper part, I will let you know how it goes...or maybe I will convince Robin to put the zipper in...I hear begging and recruiting one's girlfriend is an option, LOL.
I think making an effort when you travel to find stitching groups can push your envelope to either finish some projects or start new ones! I currently have this project on the back burner, and seeing Monica's top all put together and embellished almost makes me want to take a U-turn and head back to the Bee Hive!
...and the stitching on Phyl's quilt is an absolute inspiration. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me next...I am sure there is another stitch group just around the corner!
Stay tuned and travel along with us on Quilt Roadies...where we are connecting one quilter and one shop at a time!!
