While I do have experience sewing, I can say I've never quilted before. Ever. So I jumped in feet first, excited to try something new. Andrea Fields, of NeedleArtists and Crafters was an excellent teacher, and within two hours I had a fresh coaster to add to my collection of handmade items I'm always too afraid to use :)

Unfortunately, I also made the mistake of aggravating my carpal tunnel, so I'm working slowly in a brace for at least a few days. Not that I have a lot of projects that I'm working on right now, but at the very least I'd like to clean the house! We have a lot of events coming up, including sailing, a fashion show, and maybe some trips to Alaska and New York. This actually starting to feel like a real summer!
