A couple of weeks ago I was updating my blog and noticed that I began blogging at the end of October 2011. I couldn't believe it had been a year already, but there it was, in black and white. One year.
It's been such a fun year. I've met many wonderful women and a few good men who share my love of quilting. The ideas for cutting up fabric and stitching it back together are endless! Reading through other quilters' blogs is fascinating, inspirational, a bit overwhelming at times, but always keeps me coming back for more. I certainly would not be at the same level of quilting ability if I had not had so many tutorials to learn from. Heck, I remember when I was starting out, I back-stitched every seam, not knowing that you could just sew right on through without securing the seam. Who would have guessed?
I'm afraid to admit that I am not a very consistent blogger. I'm very sporadic due to my Day Job and travel. I find that when I'm sewing or quilting a project, I just can't take time to stop and take photos. But that's okay. That's not my goal. I don't have sponsors. I just write because I like to write and share common interests. That's me, pure and simple.
You have all been a part of my Quilty Journey. I've have more than 100 followers, and I've learned so much from you. To celebrate, I'd like to offer a Giveaway!
