Jess at Quilty Habit (here) has run a series that startied in the new year called Sewing with Certainty. While I think it is primarily directed at newer sewers and quilters there is much to be gained by reading her blog posts. In her final post of the series she asked readers to contribute their thoughts on blogging. In particular she asked about starting and/or managing and/or writing a sewing blog. what is our favourite part about blogging and how does blogging affect your quilting.
As it happens this week I did an online workshop about starting a blog. I was the very first to admit I am not a proficient blogger and there are many things I should do but don't so another almost classical case of do as I say not do as I do.
I set up this blog to record my quilting finishes and to maybe on rare occasions make comments about general topics. I do not have very advanced camera skills and would not even begin to think about do a tutorial. I am happy to describe in words what I have done or if the pattern is something I have written up to send a copy to someone. My favourite part about blogging has to be reading other peoples blogs to see what they are doing. I also love to look at the pictures. So I suspect that visitors to my blog would like to see the same things here. To answer the question how does blogging affect my quilting. Probably in two ways. I am exposed to so many new ideas while visiting other blogs and I want to try them all. Just kidding, I don't have that much time left to quilt. And it makes me want to put up pictures of better work.
As to the picture with this post. It is a velvet table cloth we bought in the Soviet Union, when it was still the Soviet Union. We took our kids on a three week tour there almost 30 years ago. We visited Sochi, home of this year's Olympics. This lovely table cloth was one of the sovenirs we brought home. Piecefully, Joanne
