I have probably about 8 or 9 of the blue "quilted" santa, three of the checkerboard Santa and 5 or 6 of the angels.
Over the years, I have dabbled in several "hobbies".....knitting, crocheting, macrame, counted cross stitch, embroidery, ceramics, but tole painting was a big one. I had all the bells and whistles for it and to this day I am having a hard time getting rid of some of those things. Obviously, I can't seem to get rid of the pieces that I painted either AND and have a whole load of raw wood that still needs painting, but probaby won't ever get painted.
Same goes with my quilting. Another BIG hobby, but I can see quilting lasting a whole lot longer.
Looking at my Santas made me think just how much quilting was in my blood for a very long time....even before I thought of quilting.....especially when you look at the quilted Santa.
It was fun looking through those boxes. If I don't touch them for another year or two, I can see going through them again when Grandson #2 comes along and has to bring items to school. I will most likely gladly do it for the kids.
Anyways, I was just wondering.....what did you do before you started quilting?
