I was invited by Amy over at http://skattebo-skattebo.blogspot.com/2014/08/around-world-blog-hop.html
And will introduce you to my two invitees at the end of the blog post.
What am I working on?
Well.... that is a great question!! I seem to have that QDD bug, and have a lot of things in process right now. Since it is also Design Wall Monday - I will bear all and show you my design wall... ready?
This is the first half of it. I made all these crazy blocks, and now am working on the setting of them.
This is the other half... a Quilt of Valor. My goal is to always make/quilt at least 12 Quilts of Valor a year.
And the other thing I am working on - Photography. I am also a photographer. (I even have Prints for Sale )
I do family/senior photography as well. What fun that is!
How does my work differ from others of it's genre?
Alright - this one is tough for me. Remember that QDD? Sometimes I follow along with others in their creation process, sometimes I have to take off on my own! I am a Machine Quilter for Hire so most of my time is focused on making sure that my Clients are taken care of, so my piecing comes later. Which come to think of it, may not differ than others at all! Hmmm.... Maybe you know how I differ?
Why do I create/write what I do?
Easy peasy - to Inspire!!! I want everyone to know that what you create is perfect - even if it is not! It is all all a learning process, and a creative process. Did you start a pattern and have it differ? That is called design inspiration, and its all good!!
I also want to let everyone know about this amazing philanthropy - called QUILTS OF VALOR - maybe you have heard of it ;-) I really love this organization - and I love that the hugs that are received by a quilt can really change lives. I try to provide patterns , block drives, finished quilt inspiration, and show you ways to jump in.... at any level!
Who am I?
I am the mom to these three knuckleheads, and wife to their daddy.
I was looking for a photo of me, apparently I am hard to find.... but there I am - in the pink!
Enough about me, I am getting uncomfortable.... the bloggers that I have tagged to continue on in this Around the World Blog hop are:
Pat and I met through blogging, and I am so glad. I think we would make a lots of mess in real life!! She is a phenomenal quilter - and i LOVE seeing all that she does. I think she might like hockey a little bit too !
I also met Bonnie through blogging. She is another amazing quilter. She is a part of the QM scrap squad and has so many amazing quilts.
Both ladies are also Quilt of Valor quilters - so we have that in common!
Go check both of these bloggers out.
