A few eBay listings later and I had enough money to buy a sewing machine and some fabrics from the US.
I eagerly began my first project, cutting and sewing while the Young Man slept. 2 years later and the queen size quilt is finally finished. The little 'corner things' are far from perfect and some of my hand sewing resembles a spilled pack of tic tac's - but i'm cool with that. I made this little sucker and it will always remind me of my first years of mothering. A few of you asked about it from this post- so I thought i'd share it here.
What was the first thing you ever made? Do you still have it?
