A personal blog about quilting, sewing and life as a mother. Lots of free tutorials including beginning quilting tutorials, binding tutorials, and other sewing projects like bags, quilt blocks and nursing covers.
I’ve been wanting to make a Halloween quilt forever.
This is the year. I think.
A big thank you for all the nice things you’ve said this week. You have no idea how much they mean. I’ve been feeling some blah, blah, bloggy frustration lately, sometimes wondering why I do it, is it worth all the time it takes away from other things, etc. There are things that I love about blogging – the main one being the wonderful people I’ve come in contact with – both in real life and by cyber-communication. I also love all the inspiration and helpful information to be found reading blogs. Wonderful stuff!
The troubling thing about blogging and blog-surfing is the whole comparison aspect that women struggle with in life in general. Seeing someone’s best, perfect side, knowing your own worst, imperfect side, yadda, yadda. I know I fall into that trap from time to time -recently, in fact – and it’s easy to get discouraged. So really, I sincerely thank you for the many kind things you’ve all said recently. My only wish is that I had more time to reply to every one – but my kids like my attention and my husband loves to eat dinner and my body likes sleep – so please accept this post as a personal thank you. Lame in effort but totally sincere in motivation.
