I went back and read my first blog post. It didn't really say much but that was then.
My virgin post
I can't believe I started out this morning without a thought of creating a blog yet I sit here having created one. One of my daily stops is to the Whipupwebsite checking out all the lovely and creative daily additions to their site. Most of the entries are connected to a blog and I have read many of them over the years. Most of these women are young mothers who have to squeeze in stolen moments throughout their day to create, sew, cook for fun and generally tap their creative essence. I am so fortunate (Thank you Universe) to have finally gotten to the point in my life where I do have the time and moderate resources to do all the things I've always wanted. It IS like being a child again when I can wake up with such anticipation for the day ahead knowing I can sew, make jewelry, start a quilt or other project, read my beloved Quilting Arts magazine, watch a "How to" DVD or just read.Life is good
Since then the creator of Whip-up and her husband drowned on vacation and I don't subscribe to or read Quilting Arts Magazine.
My life has changed exponentially and my focus turned from art quilts to surface design. I have started to paint and will be doing more of that in the future. However, I will always sew. I am making my cousin, Patricia, a queen size quilt which you will see develop.
I wanted to say how appreciative I am to those who read and comment on this blog. It's good to know there are people "out there". So many of you have become friends via email or in person. I'm so grateful to have met you all.
