Meet Kathy Dykstra
Kathy has a perfect name for her blog, as her sewing is indeed, a sewing adventure.
I am always in awe, of what she can do with some fabric, thread and a whole lot of talent.
Kathy has designed garments for magazines, such as Sew Beautiful and Australian Smocking and Embroidery. Kathy is also a teacher and her blog is an extension of her teaching.
Kathy has been a big inspiration to me as she always goes that extra step in making something special, she sews for organizations that make gowns for babies that will not live.
In making these gowns Kathy makes sure each one is special.
Since I also sew for Wee-care babies, she has encouraged me to take the extra time, to add something special.

She has a lot of inspiration to share with you.
You will love Shirley. I know some of you that visit me also visit Shirley because she has shared your blogs with me.
I love being able to call bloggers my friends, even if I know that we may never meet in person. It really doesn't matter as far as friendship goes.
Since I am a beginner quilter, Shirley has held my hand through many projects. Well, as many as I have done (which isn't much at this point). I will add, Shirley has also been there for me when I need embroidery help or blog help. I think I can call her one of my go to people. Wonder if she ever tires of me.
Shirley latest quilts were made for her grand children to enjoy as Christmas gifts. I will also say she did these quilts and had knee surgery last fall. she is a real hero.
