When my crafty sister started doing some quilting last winter, I was reminded of how interested I'd been in it back in college. I even "made" a "quilt" for a pattern and surface class (it was a knotted quilt, and the binding was attached with, uh, masking tape). I had pieced the whole thing by hand, which at the time I thought was admirable but now I have no patience. Anyway, I copied her again and took a "my first quilt" class. It turned out pretty nice!

I bought myself a sewing machine and made a few more things. I like bags. I have to learn to put in zippers though.

For years I had intended to make myself some cushion covers. I finally got around to making one.
