Hello, and welcome to the first post in my first ever blog!
I'm Kate, married, kids, grandkids, two dogs and work part time.
I have been quilting for over ten years, I'm not saying I've lots of experience, or I'm expert, or particularly good at it, just that after ten years I still enjoy it.
So, why start a blog now, when everyone says blogs are losing popularity and ‘everyone’ is moving over to Instagram? Well, two years ago I had a birthday, a big one and my lovely husband gave me an iPad as a surprise and I entered a new world. You see before that I was proficient at using a computer, I used it for work and personal stuff like documents, photoshop, searching for information, that sort of thing. A tablet is so different, it's personal, and it has apps, but what were apps? Then a light bulb went on and I went looking for them and found Bloglovin. THEN I entered the world of the online quilters - a revelation.
You see although I love quilting it had become a bit stale and, dare I say it, I was a little bored. BUT, these lovely ladies who wrote the blogs sounded so friendly and shared advice, tutorials, and patterns, and what patterns, I had entered the world of the modern quilters and I loved it.
Well ever since I have been a watcher, I have laughed with you all, cried with you, learnt from you and had so much fun with you but very rarely have I left a comment. Suddenly, I felt I was missing out, I was part of it, but not part of it. So here I am, feeling naked and exposed but ready to join the party.
