New Skill

Every Monday I volunteer at Village on the Park which is the retirement community where my mother lives. Ther is a group there that sits in the solarium every afternoon to knit. Well, I have never learned to knit so I decided to give it a try.  I had my second lesson today. We will see how it  goes.

On Wednesdays I take a class in Brazilian embroidery and also my regular watercolor class. I may have too many projects going.

I have decided that this week I will make some quillows.

“What is a Quillow?”
A combination of a quilt and a pillow is called a quillow. (Some people spell it ‘quillo’.)  The basic idea is that you fold the quilt into an attached pouch and when it’s all sealed up it looks like a pillow. Some people sew a carrying strap to their Quillows, some don’t . They are popular for kids’ sleepovers or for grownups being cozy by the TV.”

I have made them for babies and for school mascots. When I have one finished and not given away or sold, I will send a picture.
