Back in 1992, I was in my second and third semesters of graduate school. I experienced my first earthquake--a tiny three pointer. I was in--IN--my first riot. And before I went back to NH for the summer, a bigger quake. Yes, 1992 was quite a year. I didn't finish that many stitching projects. Go figure.
- Quilt Sampler—made for my mother because she had a quilt shop called "Sister's Choice." The block featured in the sampler.
- Wedding Sampler —stitched for my college roommate who really helped my transition to SoCal. I wish I could find this pattern. I lost it after I finished and I’d like to do it again! This was my first time using beads in a project.
- Santa Claus University sweatshirt, a Leisure Arts Christmas book. Stitched for my mom who loves Christmas. If I were cleverer, I would have made it the University of Santa Claus and it would have been USC. That's my mom with a candy Christmas tree she made. She's quite crafty!
- Our Beginning, Imaginating--stitched for a cousin. Her taste was all froufrou and blech. I hated every stitch! But that's okay, I hate her too.
You can see that during graduate school, stitching kind of took a back seat. Fortunately, I qualified in 1995. Things will pick up.
