Ok. When I started this blog I didn't think I would be signing up for sewing groups or swapping my projects with others.
The blogging thing is a whole new technical lesson to learn in itself and I am still finding out how to add things onto my page....(I worked out how to put up buttons the other day...I was very proud of myself)
But when reading through others blogs I began to find a whole new language What does a QAL mean oh and LQS?
Then I started to ask myself, how does everyone have time to write these blogs and still sew.
If I joined these groups, would anyone like what I make?
I couldn't let this hold me back so early last week I joined...two.
Across the Sea Quilt Along....(QAL oh is that what it means?) is being co hosted by Sarah from Fairyface Design and she has assured me that I will be able to complete the quilt. (I still think the back looks a bit tricky.) I picked out my fabrics last Saturday evening, well really it was a layer cake that I had bought a month ago and still couldn't decide what to do with it, so with that done I am now ready to conquer my first QAL!
I hope that I'm able to keep up with each weeks task. (I'm behind already.) and glad to see a few friendly faces doing it also.
I also joined Fluffy Sheep Quilting Mug Rug and Goodies Swap.
Once I joined this I really had to stop and ask 'What was I doing! What will I make?'
I am hoping that 3am brain storm will happen sooner rather than later.
I think there is still time to sign up for Cindy's Swap so check it out!
Now I hope to get a bit of sewing done this weekend on my Little Apples quilt, but I have a more important task of decorating a birthday cake for a nephew who is having a 1st birthday party tomorrow and attending the tea party so it may have to wait until Sunday.
Since posting this I have had terrible trouble with my blog...maybe I should just leave it alone and not fiddle around with it anymore...(like the tension on Mum's sewing machine)
I hope reposting this will stop my blog being redesigned by itself.
On the brighter side...the Cake is done!
