Learn something new

I finally learned how to add pages and edit a page's content.  I admire the blogs I follow that I wanted to be a part of that world.  My next step is to learn how to upload photos.  I love seeing and hearing what every one is working on.  I really do get inspired.

My goal this summer was to FINISH projects that have been tucked away in my sewing room.  like most quilters and knitters I have been accumulating kits, BOM, fabrics, yarn etc.  I finished a table topper and was attempting to sandwich the quilt, but the humidity will not allow the tape to stick to anything!  So the next best thing, i was going to start piecing a kit I purchased more years ago than i can remember.  I didn't like all of the fabric included.  Not all of  the fabrics were cotton-some were brocade types, upholstery weight and plush.  So I added some from my stash.  I thought I was being very good.  As I was planning the cutting process, that nagging little voice said--"Do you even like this fabric?"  As I said no to my inner self, I tried pushing away the negative thoughts and wanted to persevere and do it.  And then the clouds parted--I DON'T HAVE TO MAKE THIS QUILT.  I will recycle the fabric into my stash, give away what I don't like and add the pattern back into my pile.  Maybe I will make this quilt another day, maybe not.  But I am not going to spend time on a project I just don't like.  This has been very freeing.

Maiden Voyage

I discovered the world of blogging a few months ago.  I suppose it takes me awhile to be current with technology.  I have visited so many quilting and applique blogs and have enjoyed them--one blog leads to another!!!

I am a needle turn applique enthusiast (aka--obsessed) but I also like patchwork, stitchery, crazy quilting, knitting and cooking. 

I am looking forward to meeting new friends and sharing ideas. 

Hopefully, the look of my blog will change as I learn how to add buttons and other "sparkly" things.
