Everyone has their favorites… favorite food, favorite places, favorite people, and of course, their favorite hobby!
One of my favorite hobbies is sewing and quilting (of course). My wonderful mother-in-law (that most of you know as Karen, the owner of Home a la mode) began my love of quilting. When I met my husband, she owned a quilt shop in East Texas. When we would visit them on the weekends, I would go hang out with her in the shop. She gave me some fabric, a sewing machine, and a little direction – and I learned how to quilt. She took me through all the steps, including the worst part (in my opinion), pinning your quilt together. I learned after trying to take short cuts, that you really do need to take your time and use as many pins as possible. Then one day, I heard about this wonderful product called Basting Spray. And my life was forever changed!!! Ok, not that dramatically, but at least the part of life that included pinning quilts 🙂
Now, I no longer dread that step in quilting. It now takes me less than 30 minutes to baste my quilt together!!! Can you believe it!!! I shared my excitement with Karen, thinking I had discovered this wonderful NEW magic spray 🙂 She informed me that she already knew about this – how could she have been holding out on me for over 10 years!!! To which she responded, “well, you needed to know the proper way to do it”. Aaggghhh, I felt like screaming 😉
