The letter Q
"Q" stands for Queen. Yes, I'm the queen of this house. I have a few lady friends and a few nieces that have tried to come in and take over. NOPE! Ain't happening! This is my house, my kids and my husband. I have a few places that are my domain, don't come in and make me feel you are pushing me aside. If you want to be Queen, find your own house, kids and husband!
"Q" also stands for quilts. When I 1st married Dan Dan his grandmother started showing me how to make quilts. I have always thought them to be neat, but because of others harping on me not being able to sew, I stopped before I really tried. When we started home schooling, I kept trying to find someone help me make costumes and such. I finally got me a sewing machine and started teaching myself. I do okay with costumes, not bad at clothes, but I do very well at quilts. (Quilt tops so far) I went back to Dan's grandmother and told her and her eyes lite up like a Christmas tree. She pulled out a lot her stuff that night and she even said, "I'm so glad I finally have someone I can give all my quilt stuff to and my legacy live on. I almost cried. But I find working with quilts is really relaxing. Also, I'm thinking when I get done with this ABC meme of making a quilt out of the ABC's I have copied off the net and ironing them on different scraps of material and sewing them together. That way I'll have a beautiful quilt and a great memory. (The picture above is a quilt top I have started. I have got about 15 more rows to make before I can complete.)
