Hi, I’m so glad you stopped by! Thank you for coming to see what my blog offers. In a word, much! But first, I want to thank Vicki at 2 Bags Full for hosting this blog hop party. And I want to thank my regular readers for all their support over the past year. I plan for this next year to bring as much fun and variety as the first year. Click on the Grow Your Blog Button below to see all the blogs participating in this year’s event.
I have been blogging for one year now, (it is my blogiversary tomorrow!), and I do enjoy sharing the many projects I do. I think a blog should be a source of inspiration and learning for the reader, so I concentrate on content. There are lots of tutorials here – just look in the upper right corner above the banner picture for categories of tutorials you can see. I enjoy quilting, crafting, sewing, designing, cooking, reading, gardening, beading, wool work, stamping, photography and playing with my glue gun. I go hiking in the warmer months in these beautiful North Carolina mountains, and share my best pictures with you. Here’s a sample of what I have blogged over the past year –
I have quilted and sewn for many years, and each new project brings fresh excitement. This past year, one of my quilts was accepted into the American Quilter’s Society show in Charlotte. It was my first quilt accepted into a juried show!
I created several Quilting Tutorials for basic skills…
I created a few sewing projects…
and crafting projects…
My garden and veranda occupy a lot of my warmer weather attention.
Try my Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup for a cold winter day.
Sometimes I do research on interesting foodie items, like this article on salt.
And sometimes, I’ll tell you about silly holidays with things you can do to celebrate, like National Donut Day.
On holidays, I’ll show you my tablescapes, both formal and informal.
In the fall, we go to the local Apple Festival every year, such fun! We go to other local events too.
I have just so many interests, I have to write about all of them. DH says I have a low threshold for boredom, so I have to have something going on all the time. The variety of subjects keeps me interested, and allows me to work on more than one project at a time. Coming soon are articles on sewing and serging, creating more fun projects with buttons and natural materials, and a series of small quilts for tabletop display, along with several new recipes, book reviews, and mountain living articles. Check out the categories on the sidebar for more articles, projects, book reviews, recipes, and more. Or click on the home button to see the last several posts. If you like a variety of subjects, heavy on the quilting, crafting, cooking and reading, you’ll enjoy this blog.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will come again.
