That has been such a fun thing to do! There are something like 600 blogs registered for that, and I have visited a heap of them. It has been fun to meet people from all over the globe, and from my perspective it has been hugely successful. Traffic on my blog has increased dramatically (that's great!); I am now getting more comments on my posts (terrific - I am not waffling on to myself); and best of all, my followers have increased threefold (Wow! Thanks to all of you lovely people). For my part, I have followed lots of new blogs, and got heaps of inspiration. There are simply not enough hours in the day.
Yesterday was a Stitching Hearts day, and if you feel like a bit of eye candy, take a look at the post. There were a huge number of quilts brought in, and I took photos of all of them. There was a freight train broken down between Woy Woy and Gosford, yet again, which caused delays for hours. Just what you need on the way home.
This morning was my usual sewing day with the Friday Quilters, and I put the final borders on Blue Cheddar. Absolutely tickled with that quilt.
That got me wondering. How many spools of thread do I use in a year? So just for fun, I threw that lot out, and decided to keep spools for 6 months to see how many I use. I already have four empties from the month of January.
The month of February for the RSC14 is pink - the darker ones, as the baby pinks will be later during the year. I ratted through my pre-cuts the other day to select the pinks I need to make the various blocks I am doing for that (you can see my progress on the page "completed in 2014". At the end of it all, I am hoping for 4 separate lap quilts which will be donated to Stitching Hearts.) My collection of pink 2" squares is miserable. I shall have to cut a lot of those to complete my projects. (And pirate a few scraps from friends too)
Tonight I am planning to join in to Friday Night with Friends at Gone Stitchin' for the first time. Why not join in?
