I am so excited. I finally worked up the courage to begin a blog after mulling over it for over a year. The purpose of the blog was going to be to share my love of quiling, sewing, and crafting with others.
As I started blogging I came across a menagerie of blogs sharing tablescapes, outdoor pictures, color posts, spiritual posts, to name a few, and I was hooked. That blog took on more of a home and decorating blog.
Sidenote: I was looking up the menagerie to make sure I was spelling it correctly and using it correctly, this is what I found.

So I am posting my first post as a preview before participating in Judy Laquidara's first Quiltathon of the year. Last year I participated in a few of them and was
The first Quiltathon is scheduled for this weekend. I can't wait to get started. My house will be totally quiet as I will be home alone on Friday evening . . . so I think maybe I'll start early.
See you this weekend. Until then . . .
Happy clipping, snipping, and quilting.
