Since I chose "Honesty" as my word for the year I thought I might talk a little about honesty. Can you ever be too honest? I have been accused of this sometimes. If you ask me a question, I am usually going to answer you honestly, and sometimes the truth hurts. I need to learn to think before I speak...you would think after 60 years I would have learned this by now.
So today, I am going to answer this question..."Why do you blog?"...
and my answer is simple, I blog for myself as a way of self expression and recording my creative and family life. But if I dig a little further I also blog to show-off and get compliments. Honesty! I'm competitive and I like to get things done. I wish I was an innovator, but most of my life I have been happy following patterns and trends.
This leads me to my latest
copy along quilt along, the #scrappytripalong that has taken Instagram by storm. I have finally finished sewing all my squares for the quilt. I started with the idea of making 36, which would make a 6' square quilt, but today I decided I wanted it to be 6'X7', so I stitched up another 6 squares today.
So my list this week includes sewing this quilt together and choosing a backing fabric (I'll need to order some fabric).
I follow a lot of blogs and I try to comment a lot, but honestly, sometimes I would just rather read them and not comment. Another Honesty moment...it's ok if you don't comment on all my posts. I'm really ok with it.
I have met so many wonderful people through blogging, and I have learned more than I ever knew existed about quilting. Tricks and techniques I would never have learned had I not discovered the amazingly talented, generous, funny and loving online quilting community. I love you guys!
So Honesty...where do you stand?
