Hello everyone. I have a “Snow Day” off work today here in Portland, Oregon so I thought I would use the time to get some blogging done. I cannot tell you all how excited and thrilled I am to be a part of this group. It will be my first quilting bee EVER! *So be prepared for a lot of questions 🙂 *
I have been quilting for about six years now and do believe I have found my true creative outlet. Quilting is my zen space and I use it to learn and grow as well.
For the first few years of my quilting experience I did not use any patterns. I would look at an image and then figure it out on my own. Sometimes reading or watching a handful of tutorials first. I have finally learned to embrace a complete pattern and make it my own with fabric choices and placement. I am all about things being unique.
More about me… My name is Jen Rosin. I am a single mother of a teenage boy and a sometimes frustrating, but always cuddly Shetland Sheepdog, Marius. Almost two years ago I packed up everything and left Montana (my home for about 95% of my life) to move to Portland. It is a wonderful city and I am glad I made the move even though I do get homesick for that country(ish) life.
I work full-time as an Administrative Assistant for a restaurant headquarters and it keeps me pretty busy. So, my quilting time is fairly limited. If it was up to me, I would be at my sewing machine, or sketch pad, or computer (blogging) 5 days a week instead, but one must make a living right? 🙂 My blog is A Dream and A Stitch. I only started the blog in May of 2016 and have encountered so many benefits already. The top of which being all of the amazing quilters I have met.
Again, I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and make some amazing quilts in the process.
Just to put a face to a name, here I am:
Not a very happy photo, but it is the most recent one I have.
P.S. I am new to WordPress, so if there are any tips to make my posts better, just let me know.
