To visit my fellow bloggers!
It's that wonderful time of year, when we take a moment or two to really think about the good things in life.
What better time than Thanksgiving time. Thank you Michelle for bringing us all together to celebrate a wonderful time of the year!
Here is the USA, fall is upon us. Leaves have fallen in my part of the country, and the warm reds and yellows are changing to brown. But it all makes me warm and fuzzy...
I would like to share my warm and fuzzy color log cabin quilt with you. It's called "Autumn at the Cabin". It was the shop hop quilt in 2010 for the Central Kansas Quilt shops.
I love the cream color background fabric. It was a specialty fabric that Hoffman made just for their hop. All the names of the cities that participated in the hop were on it. How cool is that?
I fell in love with this quilt, when I saw it hanging in the Quilting Bee in Salina Kansas. I was lucky enough to visit them during a Quilt Shop Bus Tour that took in 3 states, back in 2010. I can't tell you just how much fun that trip was! :-)
This shop did a little damage to my credit card!
You can surely see why!
See the quilt that caught my eye, hanging in the classroom photo above?
The Quilting Bee was so kind, to ship me the kit once the fabrics arrived in their store. But there were 9 other shops involved. I didn't get fabrics from each of them. I shopped my stash instead. I do, so love being able to shop the stash, when I can!
This quilt was so fast and fun to put together, that I am asking myself, just why did it take you 3 years to open the package??? Oh that endless bag of PIGS (projects in grocery sacks). But I am please to say, I checked off another one of em!
I can't tell you, just how thankful I am, for you! Each and every one of you, who have read and supported my blog for 5 years now. I started blogging to encourage myself to finish up those PIGS, that I have. While it probably hasn't been as successful on that front, cause you all keep finding me new things to try. Yeah, you know who you are. All of you, who share their patterns, quilt-a-longs, stitcheries, tips and tricks. I can't get enough of it all. So much so, that my PIGS have a hard time fighting their way out of that sack! LOL!! But you know I love it! I've made so many wonderful friends in blogland, too.
Have you ever sat and thought about blogging? It's the one place were we come to meet others with like interests. We take all the other peripheral "stuff "out of the equation, and make friends based on our love of whatever we blog about. Sharing is rampant and support unlike anywhere else I've been. I may not know your face, or where or how you live, but I do know, I love what you have to share and have taught me. Humility is the word that comes to mind. The definition of it is "the state of being humble and free from pride". I can honestly say, you all humble me every day with your endless encouragement and inspiration. Pride... I fall down when it comes to that. I wear my pride of being a part of you, on my sleeve, for all to see! And I won't apologize for that! :-)
So what I really have to be thankful about this season, is the fact I am starting my 6th year blogging. You have helped me grow to having 700 Google followers and 374 Bloglovin followers (and counting). Email followers... whew, who knew!
If your new to my blog, welcome. My goal is to inspire and entertain you down this crazy quilting road we all seam to love to travel! I'd love for you to join me! I promise a raucous fun time along the way.
Along the way...lets have a give a way, wadda say? (I'm such a poet) NOT! tee hee
A 1 yard piece of this wonderful Thanksgiving fabric.

You can see what I did with this fabric last year.

Just so you know, I am in the process of a garden remodel.
I will soon have an outhouse (not a real one) with a deck and some rocking chairs
Toilets are going to be turned into planters. And we will be able to sit along the pond.
Bringing out the redneck in me! LOL!!
What will the neighbors think?
You might consider being happy your not my neighbor!
