Happy Blog-aversary To Me



One year ago today, I would not have been able to fathom writing about today.  On January 23rd of 2015 I finally found the nerve to spread my wings and enter the world of quilt blogging.  It seemed like the perfect way to connect with other quilters and grow in the art form that I love.  When I wrote my first post Down the Rabbit Hole about my version of Pat Sloan's Globetrotting Quilt I had no idea if anyone at all would take the time to read it...other than a few of my friends, humoring my crazy venture(thank you Jackie, Stacie and Lori).


Then I discovered the 2015 New Quilters Blog Hop and my prayers were answered.  Finally, I found the advice I needed to truly reach out to others that share the same quilty passion.  I can never thank, Cheryl (Meadow Mist Designs), Yvonne (Quilting Jetgirl), Stephanie (Late Night Quilter) and Terry Ann (Childlike Fascination) for hosting that event.  It has lead to many friendships that I will always treasure.  Fingers crossed I will be meeting up with one of those friends in the spring.

It's been a year of finding my voice and what I love about quilting.  I've tried new things and look forward to the many more new things to come.  My friends, you inspire me and make me want to continue growing.  So thank you for being there and also for doing what you do.  

I think maybe cabin fever has set in from all the snow...

and I should go before my sewing machine starts talking to me.  I promise next time we will be back to quiltly goodness.

So glad I broke my computer-free Sunday rule and saw your post! Congrats and here's to more years, and more quilty friends. So glad I count you among my closest! Clink! (as Cindy said) of wine glasses.

Congratulations!! It's been great getting to know you. I feel your pain with the snow, but I am so happy that it bypassed us -- just a few inches of snow.

Hooray for you and your 1st anniversary! Sewing is so much fun but shoveling isn't -'I'd rather unsew than shovel any day except if the shoveling was clearing the path to the quilt shop. I lived in western NY for 30+ years so I do know and remember shoveling. Snow is pretty when the storm first starts and there's a light covering like batting to cover all the dirt and mud but then ... Enjoy the sewing time.
