Quilted yesterday

yes i quilted yesterday. i started quilting a new seat cover for my chair, that i sit in all the time. i had pieced it the other day. my chair is very worn out and it really needs help. so i thought i would quilt a cover for it. first the set cover than arm covers than the back cover. yeserday was the first day quilting the set caver. i only did about 30 mins & setting up the nachine took 10 mins. so i really only machine basted it, but at least i started. i had not blogged or quilted because i have not been feeling well.

quilted today

i did a little quilting today, it makes me feel better when i get in the sewing room! i wish i could spend hours quilting like so many i us to know. many years ago i belonged to the quilt club here in town. i belonged for 5 years. than i fell and really hurt myself! i cracked two vertebras in my cervical spine. it put a stop on everything! that happened many years ago. i am just getting back to the world of the living, doing it very little it a time. in that fall i hurt many other things too, but the spine injury was by far the thing that stopped my life. after a couple of years my friends stopped calling & coming by. while in the quilt club i did learn a lot. i do miss others to talk to, so when the computer came and i got friends with her i started to blog. i like to blog see u tomorrow.

Intermediate quilter, beginner bloger

I am also new to the computer. My huband got me this used desktop right after Christmas ,so when I goof remember I am new at all this. My husband also says I am an intermediate quilter but I say I am a beginner because I started quilting by quilting vests & purses. Than placemates,& pot holders. I have , in the last 2 years, made 4 small wall hangings. I have never

made a quilt. What do you think? Am I a beginner or an intermediate?

The title to my blog is animal lover, I may change it down the road. I chose that because I am a BIG lover of dogs & cats & birds & raccoons, really all animals. Probably more than I love fabric.
I do not quilt everyday the way the rest of the blogers do because I am in pain much of the time.
That is a long story that I will tell another time.
