Small New Blog Meet Up: Get to know me!

Small Blog Meet

Hello there! 
My name is Christine and I love to sew!
I'm a 28 year old stay-at-home mom to my adorable 3 year old son.

I've been married to my wonderful husband for 5 and a half years now.
We have two dogs, a boxer a long-haired chihuahua and we also have a cat and two fish.
We live in a smallish town (biggest one in the county!) in Northern Illinois.
I really only started learning to quilt 6 months ago.  Before that I only thought I knew what I was doing!
I love my Janome!
If I had a million dollars I would probably spend half of it on fabric!  Oh it would be bad! :-P
Hmmm...What else?
I don't care if my quilts aren't perfect.  Quite honestly I prefer that they aren't.
I've taken up a third of my living room as my "sewing room" and wouldn't have it any other way.
I hate spiders and snakes!
I can be rather sarcastic!
I will buy whole fabric collections because I like the way they look together, even if I really don't care for some of the individual prints.

I guess that's it for now.  I hope you like my blog and can put up with my rambling from time to time!  I can't wait to meet you!

I'm loving the aqua and red blocks you've been making

Found your through Lilys Quilts. You sound a lot like me...16 years ago. Enjoy your little fellow while he is little. It goes way too quickly.

I think I would still buy fabric too if I won the lotto too!

Maria Spiller said...

Hello, I found you via Lily's. I look forward to reading your blog.

My blog is not new but I have also joined up for the meet-up!

Of course, I was already a follower of your blog so it's good to see you again!

Hi Christine. I just came over after linking up at Lily quilts. You have a great blog and beautiful quilts. Your son looks exactly like you!

Ella said...

I came over here from Lily's, but then realized I was in the first rainbow swap with you and that I had already gushed over your quilt! (I'm on flickr as shimmyblisster and over at Throw a Wench in the at Lily's.)

Rylee Kettner said...

Wow only a third of your living room? I claimed the whole thing months ago!! I look forward to following you!

Cille said...

I found your blog though Lily's and look forward to see more of your quilts.

You are lucky you got to stay in the living room - I got kicked out for taking up too much room and making too muc noise *LOL*

Teresa said...

I came over from Lily's blog. I love your quilts you made for Kayce and Katie. How long did you say you have been quilting. I hope mine turn out that good also.

Hi Christine, I found your blog over at Lily's. I love how colorful your quilts are. I am with you on most of your introduction facts, especially the "if I had a million bucks..." and I hate spiders and snakes so much that I am worried if I'll survive moving to Texas (coming from a country that has no poisonous animals). Hope to hear from you. Sana
