When we bought our house last year one of the must haves for us was a. a man cave for my husband and b. a sewing room for me. I am so glad we held out for this. It took a bit of renovations, but I got my room, and I named it Sewrenity. This is obviously a play on Serenity and sewing... but it's also a slight nod to Joss Whedon, creator of Firefly. We love all things Joss.
So I decided to create a blog where I can post my quilty and crafty creations, and this is it.
About me: I am a 37 year old (almost 38) Mom of two, married for 11 years, work full time outside of the house. My kids are 2 and 4. They and my husband make me laugh and smile - a lot.
I love to quilt. I love to read. I love wine. I am a moderate geek - I like geeky things, but am not as geeky as other people I know. For example my favourite shows run along the lines of Farscape. Stargate, Warehouse 13, Buffy, Angel, Firefly... You get the idea. I like other stuff too, but there is certainly the geeky component in there. I'm the kind of woman who when we recently brought home our new patio table that had a hole for the umbrella to go through said to my husband "You know, this table would be awesome for playing Settlers of Catan, and we could just put the desert in the middle..." He called me a geek. He was right.
For my first bit of crafty goodness I am attaching a picture of a quilt I recently made for my daughter. I belong to an online quilting group, and after putting out a request for friends to send me blocks with the following parameters - 8 1/2" unfinished, dragonfly themed, colours of periwinkle, purple, lime green - this is what I ended up with:
