I have only had this new blog up for a week, and I already had doubts after I posted my first giveaway. I was asking myself, "Why am I branching out and doing another blog?" I'm not trying to get advertisers. I'm not trying to be a super blogger. I'm not trying to rack up the followers, although I do love seeing the creations of those who follow my blog. I love finding new blogs and people to get ideas from. I personally only know a few people who, like me, are addicted to fabric and quilting-- a good friend around the corner who I have successfully indoctrinated, and the fabulous ladies of my modern quilt guild. I suppose this blog is simply another way to connect with people who love creating in similar ways.
I was having dinner with a couple friends from my childhood several months ago. We were discussing my sewing addiction and one friend told me a story that I loved about her mother. I grew up next door to this girl and have always known her family well. Like my mom, her mother sewed many of their clothes as kids. When she finished a project, rather than let it be worn immediately, she hung it up at the end of the hall for a few days to admire what she had accomplished. This blog is my "end of the hall". It's so fun to share what I have created--not to brag, but just to find someone who also loves and appreciates the work I put into a project. I love that blogs allow us to see others' "end of the hall". Thanks for coming to mine.
