My Creative Being

Growing up my mom made a lot of clothes and things for us.  She sewed pillowcases and outfits.  I learned how to cross-stitch at a young age.  I liked to draw and make things.  Even if they weren't all that great.  I have started a new endeavour.

My mom is teaching me to sew.  I have wanted to learn for a long time.  I sewed with my mom a little bit but since I don't have a sewing machine of my own all my knowledge disappeared since I never used it.  My friend had a baby so I decided to make her son, Jacob, a baby quilt.  What a project to choose as my first project.  I have been working on it for a couple months and it is almost finished.  I only work on it every other Friday when my mom has off so it has been slow going.  I am excited to write a post with pictures once it is finished.  It is turning out great.

I also have many other projects I am working on.  I have a lot of pregnant/just given birth friends so I am making bibs and burp rags.  I also am making a stuffed dog for my niece, Zaida.  That is her Christmas present.  Most of these projects are near completion so I will not post pictures quite yet but know there are pictures to come.

I am excited to finally feel comfortable knowing I can create something.  My imagination is the limit.


  1. That is cool that you are trying a new creative avenue! Look forward to seeing all the photos - especially the quilt.
    I have SOoooo many unfinished projects - mostly cross-stitch. I should make some goals to get them finished.


  2. I have a lot of unfinished cross-stitch projects also. I have only ever finished one thing! A pig bookmark for my Grandma. haha. I am working on Christmas ornaments and I want to get at least one done this year for my niece.

  3. oh! i can't wait to see. I've been thinking about making my friend a baby blanket too - but I cant decide if I want to crochet or quilt.

  4. Sounds cool to be able to do this ... nice job. I'll look forward to the photos!
