Me and my "habit"

Hi, my name is Jess, and I'm a quilter. I'm learning. I have perfecting to do. I also have a list of about twenty-five things that I would love to make right now, and will in the next couple of years. I also LOVE fabric and reading quilting blogs. I unfortunately cannot sew or quilt at the moment because I am away at college, in a very demanding and time-consuming teaching program, with two jobs, and no room in my tiny single room to keep a sewing machine or even to spread out a quilt. This is why, right now, quilting is my "guilty habit" - hence the name of this blog (plus, my fiance came up with it, and he's set on having me name my blog and one day [hopefully] my business after this =P ).

But quilting brings me so much peace and joy that I could never think of my "quilty habit" as a negative thing, and you shouldn't either! That is why I'm clearing it up now, in my first post :) For now, I'm going to start posting pictures of the quilts I have done so far, and blogging about give-aways so my poor college self might be able to win some gorgeous fabric and supplies from the amazing quilting bloggers out there!

I can't wait to get back to my sewing machine. POSSIBLY this weekend, when I'm home for the first time since the end of August. If I don't get back to the sewing machine, there's still a 98% chance of me buying more fabric this weekend when I'm out with my sister :)

Until next time, when I'm procrastinating on homework again! (give it about ten minutes)
