Me, Myself & I
Recently while reading a post on one of the Yahoo e-mail groups I tripped across and visited Jeanne's blog. Her blog led me to many others and I spent more hours than I care to count, reading current and archival posts. I'm not going to dwell on that - suffice it to say that I had an absolute BLAST reading about a variety of quilting ventures, etc.

I'd been encouraged to start my own blog so that I, too, could share my quilting challenges and ventures. I thought it might be better if I did my blog in a "secret" mode - not wanting anyone to know who I was. Why??? Well, I didn't want to worry about seeking acceptance or
worry about rejection. There's a huge problem with that entire thought process, though, I want to make friends via this blog. How is that possible if I'm in a "secret" mode????? Patti sent me an e-mail and "tagged" me - "consider yourself tagged and tell us more about yourself". I panicked when I read that however it made me think long and hard about this blog. Oh, I could go on and on but why beat a dead horse. I've decided that this blog cannot be in "secret" mode and I can't be incognito - I am who I am and I shouldn't be ashamed! Hopefully I'll be accepted by all who stop by to read my blog and share in my quilting.

Hello there - welcome to blogland - I've not been blogging long either - I really love your buzz-saw quilt - it just does look like the saw blade came clean out of the quilt top - cheers Anne in England

Your quilt reminds me of Fall - my favorite time of the year. It is a beautiful quilt.
Like Anne, I'm new to blogging also. It is fun and I have made many cyber friends as a result. And reading Jeanne's blog (Spiral) also inspired me.
Your quilts are wonderful and your blog is fun to read.

Your buzzsaw quilt is wonderful! Welcome to Blogger! I've only been blogging a couple of months and find it addictive LOL. Beware!

Nice to get to know you better! I love the buzz saw quilt - the blocks extending into the border are great!

I made this same quilt and I love it. I made it in flannel and it is the coziest quilt that I have made. I am giving it to my daughter for Christmas and have enough scraps left to make a smaller one for my granddaughter. Yours is beautiful
