Back to Blogging!

I have decided that it is time to revive my blog after quite a long absence. I know that I am not always a consistent blogger but this last break was quite ridiculous time wise! Life happens and changes happen and time for creativity gets lost in the shuffle.

Over the past months, I have spent quiet time visiting many of my favourite blogs on a regular basis watching so many quilts being made and seeing so much creativity happening and wishing I was doing the same.

I haven't spent as much time as I would like working on my quilting but I have been squeezing some time in here and there. I really miss blogging because it does act as my journal and my written documentation for my quilts and my quilting journey. I kept telling myself that I would write everything down as I worked on various projects in my sewing room but that certainly didn't happen!!

I just finished the quilting on this scrappy charity quilt and I am ready to start hand stitching the binding. Of course, I do not have a record of most of my journey with this quilt and that makes me a bit sad but I think it is going to be a wonderful quilt and someone is going to love to receive it.

When I loaded this quilt onto the frame I decided at the last second to load it sideways and wasn't thinking about the size of the batting. Luckily, I had just enough to do the job! See....these are the small details of the journey that get lost when they are not documented. I must do better!!

So happy to have you back in Blogland. I missed you. Your jewel box is lovely. May 2019 brings you all you need to be happy and at peace. ;^)

I’m glad to see you back in blogland,too. I think some of us have missed the writing (and reading others blogs) so it’s nice to see so many coming back. I love the Jewel Box quilt. Happy New Year.

So great to see you back again. I’ve noticed that a lot of the people I used to follow are no longer blogging. And my own has fallen way off. Some months only got 2 posts last year. I hope you can keep it up. It’s very easy to fall out of the habit of thinking about and then writing up a blog post.

So happy to hear from you! I think I checked around September but I couldn't see anything. Hope all is well and so glad you are still stitching. Hope you have a happy and healthy 2019 with a few blog posts to tell us what is happening in your neck of the woods. Pretty quilt =)
