I have a number of hobbies. All are craft oriented and all involve creating. The satisfaction of working on something and finishing with something tangible is wonderful. This morning I am working on learning how to finish a quilt. I have only recently figured out how to use the sewing machine and have been making mini placemats (mug rugs they are called, apparently) and coasters. I have machine stitches the binding to the front and am now attempting to hand sew it to the back. It’s not great, but practice will make…not perfect, but better.
