First Post 1/20/2014

I am starting this blog to journal the quilts I make, and other crafts I am involved with, and just other stuff that happens. I may babble on about most anything, but it will mostly be quilts.

We just came home from Florida where they have much warmer weather than we do in Michigan winters. I loved the days we got to bask in the sun. But some nights got down to 39 degrees, so a little chilly. We came home to this:

I really preferred the sunshine.

We stayed in a campground near Ft Myers where there was a very active quilting group. I had a great time with them. They meet twice a week from 10 to 4, so I was able to get a lot done there. In addition, I sewed many evenings in our RV. I got a Jelly Roll RAce top almost done (need borders still), pieced a Hidden Nine Patch variation, worked on Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt.--I used Inklingo for that, for my first time. I really like the method, but find I must be a more accurate cutter to be able to take advantage of the accuracy built into the Inklingo.--I have many more ideas flitting thru my head. I need to make a list of what I want to accomplish for the year.

That's one of the things I hope this blog does for me. Help me stay focused.

I have found blogging to be very motivating and I so love having a virtual record of my quilting life! You will find that others are very helpful with Blogger. Welcome and have fun.
