Well, I have played around a bit with my blog background and settings - taking advantage of the free sites out there. It doesn't look exactly like I want it to yet, but I will keep trying to get it looking nice. I would like to add a book section that shows pics of book covers, but can't figure out how to do that yet. :)
I belong to a group of quilters which meets the first Monday of each month to share our love of quilting. I have been a member of a quilting group for probably 7 out of the last 10 years off and on. I enjoy belonging to a group because it is a huge treat to see everyones quilts at "show and tell" time and also it is a great way to take affordable classes and learn new techniques. We met the first Monday of each month and on the 3rd of January, new officers were introduced, a new block of the month was introduced as well as the pattern for the groups LUV quilts which are made by members to be donated to local charities. This group has grown over the years and I would guess it now has over 50 members. LOTS of VERY talented quilters. I have added their site to my sidebar and if you go to the site and look they have an open photo album where the pictures from each meeting are shared. I think one reason I am a blog "lurker" is I really enjoy looking at quilts and other sewing projects. I picked up two new books for Christmas, one is The Apron Book and the other Miss Rosie's Spice of Life Quilts. Both look really good, hopefully I can share more about them next post.
