A Little Blog Music Please

I'm linking up today with Lily's quilts Small Blog Meet. Hence, my title. I guess if I have to explain it, it isn't that good a title.

I am a new blogger, almost two weeks! Should I have a birthday party? Little blogging candles? A chance to eat cake?

We are forecast for 3-6" more snow today. We were going to go to our daughter's house, 2 hours drive, but decided we can't trust the driving around here. They are forecast 4-6".

Is there a better way to do linkys? Any help is appreciated.



NEW BLADE!



Isn't a new blade in your rotary cutter a happy thought? The other night I noticed my blade was getting dull--which probably means that it was VERY dull. Changed it, but just as I was getting ready to put the screw back in, I jostled the cutter, and the screw jumped out of my hand, somewhere toward the floor. Can't find it. Maybe it jumped into the waste basket? Somewhere under the table? On the shelves? So I switched to a brand new rotary cutter. Nice sharp blade. Mmmm. Makes cutting so much easier. This is the new Rotary Cutter. See, you can open either half of the blade if you're right-handed or left. 


I ordered some 10" flannel squares from Keepsake Quilting, came today. This will go for a raggedy quilt. 





This is just the array of flannels that were in the package. Kinda looks like a Disappearing Nine Patch, or 25 patch, don'tcha think? I like the polka dots. I'm looking forward to playing with them.

Hi Lin,
Do you use blogger to write your posts? I found that if you want to add a link image I change from the text page to the HTML page and insert the code where I want it, then go back to finish writing on the text page. It worked like magic for my Wool on Sundays link.
Pats on backs for both of us on our 2 week anniversary. XXX

Congratulations Lin on your 2 week birthday. Looking forward to seeing what you do with your 10" flannel squares.
