Anniversaries are fun. The Anniversary of my birth – I’m 45 and glad to have lived this long.
I’m married 21 years – truthfully my greatest achievement ever.
I’ve been a quilter for 20 years and am thrilled for all of the great thing I’ve been able to do, participate in and the quilts I’ve made. I started blogging in August 2007 and migrated over to WordPress 6 years ago today (February 5th). I migrated over because I liked the format and found it more intuitive and easier to interact with anyone who comments. *I admit to being a bit of a slacker in responding sometimes*
To me it’s interesting that I started machine quilting right about this same time. Yes dear friends I’ve only been machine quilting about 7 years. Taking a moment to reflect on what this 7 years has brought is…just…wow. Thank YOU so much for sharing this journey with me.
A week or so ago I started tidying my sewing room organizing fabric into things that I love; what was I thinking and stuff for students. I’ve found cloth from when I started quilting. I’ve found memories that will be moved into other area’s of the house. I’ve found my camera. Can I just tell you how happy I am that I have my camera? I’d started looking at new cameras because I was going through good photo withdrawal.
In the spirit of a trend I’ve notice over the last 9 months or so I’m adding a 2nd word of the year: DARE. More on that another day.
One final thought: have fun quilting!
