What do you think of the new blogger? I'm not sure if I like it myself. Maybe because I haven't gotten used to it. Third post since they changed over and I still have to hunt to find the right place to click!
Finally found time to sew...I've been baking and baking and baking...and eating and eating and eating! I have been having a LOT of fun learning all about baking and making cakes in preparation for my daughter's birthday. I say to those around me that it's "in my blood", as my Grandmother was an avid baker. She passed away when my oldest daughter was just a baby, I was only around 20, during a tumultuous time in my family. Lots of conflict and disconnection that occurred due to events that happened long before I was born. All things happen for a reason and while the separation may have been necessary at the time, it leaves me wondering if my interest in baking somehow is inherent from my Grandmother. I would have liked to pick her brain of all her baking knowledge.
My Mother has taught me a lot and definitely instilled a love of cooking in me and I definitely believe my passion for sewing is a direct result of the hours I spent listening to the sound of her sewing machine as a child. To this day the smell of starch and the sound of steam from an iron bring me straight back to my youth.
These days I have more hobbies than I know what to do with. Baking is the latest obsession, but my all time passion aside from my family is quilting. I don't think anything will make me quite as happy as quilts do. I am having a good time ticking off the list of each new creative endeavor I find myself suddenly emmersed in however. But in the end they always lead me back to quilts. Like cakes...cupcakes even. I have been dreaming of cupcakes and what do you know? Somehow my two little hands produced not a cupcake...but a quilted cupcake...isn't that a peculiar thing? :)
