(Quilt I made for my grandniece Isla. She and her family live in cottage country so I thought they would like the canoe, fish and bear fabric. My simple design)
I started writing the blog in February of this year. I'm not completely sure I know why. It's not like I need to keep myself busy . I work full time and I'm busy with many small quilting groups and a book club. I have a hard time squeezing in exercise which I really need to do. I think like many others who blog I like to reflect on what I'm doing and I like to write.

Both of my kid's have grown up and left home. The youngest completely moved out just this year so I suppose the blog fills a space that the kids used to fill up. Blogging lets me focus on myself and something which I care about. It gives me a new hobby and I get to learn new skills. I'm following the beautify your blog posts at Sew at Home Mummy so expect to see some improvements here in time.

The best thing about blogging is that I get to have conversations with quilters all over the world. To see what they are doing , to pick up tips advice and ideas. It's also a good way to set some goals and keep track of my progress. I find that I'm getting more quilting done than I used to, since I started this blog just 4 months ago.
