    A good friend Marj inspires me, she’s retired now, so she says, but after a whole working life being a school librarian, she now volunteers her time to run an Odyssey of the Mind division, which continues to inspire creativity and problem solving in kids, as well as being a mom, grandma and cancer survivor. A perkier, more enthusiastic soul you’d be lucky to find.

She has the patience of a saint and she’s involved in every aspect of her 2 children’s lives, She’s the cub scout den mother, on school council, room mother, cheerleading chaperone… everything.

    I have a 74 year old woman inspiring me right now. She can do more in a day than most people do in a month. She’s learning to sell on ebay and has all the latest gadgetry which by taking copious notes is learning to use better than I can. She also does amazing cross stitch as well as still dreaming and doing fantastic gardening projects.

    My great-aunt Zelma was an inspired storyteller and our family historian. She headed up the Red Cross in her county right after WWII and took on the federal government to keep families together when they emigrated from displaced persons camps. She never took “No” for an answer when it came to doing what was right. I miss her greatly.

  41. Amy
    May 12, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    My grandmother inspires me. She passed away a few years ago, but she was the one who kept our family together. I miss her a lot. I am pregnant with my first child, due in less than a month and I wish she could have met her and done all the things she used to do with me, with her. I will do my best to let her come through me so my daughter can know her too. if I win, I am going to make something for my new baby.

    My mum. She’s entirely selfless, and would do anything she could to try and help me out (she does drive me crazy sometimes too!), but if I can give my children some of the security and love she gave me growing up, I’ll count my parenting as a sucess.

  115. May 13, 2014 at 3:34 pm

    It would have to be you and all that applies to quilting; eye candy, patterns, fabric. It so helps and then you become addicted and you’re always learning and shopping your heart out. But I love quilting and everything included. Thank you for being a part of this Sew Mama Sew Giveaway and the chance to win this fantastic awesome giveaway. God I would so love to win something,anything.

    A woman who inspires me creatively? My great-grandmother. She grew up and lived in (very) rural South Texas on a ranch and created gorgeous quilts in addition to raising 3 kids and helping on the ranch. When she got older, she switched from quilting to china painting and her pieces are beautiful.

    My cousin Heather inspires me. She is an amazing mother who works at a very tough job, runs marathons for fun, is a leader for drill team, bikes and is insanely creative and so down to earth! People think she is intimidating because she is so strong and confident, but she is the most non-judgmental woman I know and dearly love!

  124. May 13, 2014 at 6:37 pm

    My three girls. Watching them grow and learn inspires me to be there to help them find their way!

  125. May 13, 2014 at 6:57 pm

    I’m inspired by my Mom — her love of craft and confidence in me makes me want to get in my sewing room every time I talk to her!

    My grandmother inspires me. She is the most selfless person I know. She was/is a hard worker, never complained, loved everyone, and still to this day (at 92) tries to spoil me with food. Always making sure we have a full belly. Love her so much!

  128. May 13, 2014 at 8:16 pm

    So fun! Totally diff than the quilts I’m usually admiring. My latest inspiration is Julia Child. She was quite adventurous, but seemed practical and fun as well. She also experimented and didn’t worry too much about mistakes, which I could learn from! Thanks for the giveaway!

  131. May 13, 2014 at 9:02 pm

    Sarai from Colette Patterns. She’s built a fantastic business and community, and her blog posts are always so thoughtful!

    My mother and grandmother inspired me. My grandmother raised two kids on her own and worked full time during a time period that was rare. My mother raised 8 kids and was the person who got me into crafting, and sewing and has been a great cheerleader.

    My two daughters inspire me, both are wonderful mothers of young children, and I learn a lot from them. One is a teacher and really really good at it. one is a probation officer and has done wonderful work in the justice department of Canada.

  151. May 14, 2014 at 2:48 am

    My daughters inspire me. Everyday, they show me how fearless they are. I even managed to hold a tarantula and a python last year, even though I was terrified because my 7yo told me she knew I could do it. :)

  217. May 16, 2014 at 4:52 am

    My mother inspires me. After raising 6 kids and my father, she let herself develop her creative abilities in dollmaking, painting, native arts, and more. I should mention she sewed all my (all the girls) school clothes until I was old enough to sew my own. She died unexpectedly 16 years ago this month, and I still miss her.

    A neighbor I had as a child. Her and her husband were Austrian olympians in the 40’s and 50’s and escaped Russian invasion by bicycling through the Alps with their daughter.

  232. May 16, 2014 at 7:58 pm

    My great grandmother inspires me. She lost her mother at a early age and raised her siblings while her Dad worked extra jobs to feed all of them. When she did marry, her husband had to travel with his job and they had to scrimp as much as possible to feed all five kiddos. Even though life was hard and there wasn’t much to be had, she was one of those gentle rays of sunlight that make the world feel better on the darkest days. She was rarely still and quilted constantly. I miss that lady.

  233. Karen B
    May 16, 2014 at 8:27 pm
