New Hobby

What is someone to do when they have so much on their plate that they don’t have any extra time to sleep anymore?  They get another hobby!

I get myself in trouble when I drink wine!  I made the ‘mistake’ of telling my dear friend, Sandra, that I have always wanted to learn how to quilt.  I had no idea that she would take me on as student!

That was a few months ago.  Since that time, I have made two beautiful quilts, started a third and have plans for a dozen more!

My first quilt

One more check off my bucket list!

My second quilt

Poor Les, he’s probably wondering what’s coming next…he suggested canning, but the whole pressure cooking things terrifies me…so maybe I’ll start with pickling!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.

    Hi Heather! I think it’s neat that you’ve taken up quilting. My ex-mother-in-law was heavily into quilting for years. She had a large quilting machine because she was more into designing them than sewing them together. She did some beautiful work. I think a quilting machine would just about fit in your front room! Les could help you install it. 🙂 Your friend, Julia
