Good Morning,

What an unusual, title right?
Daily I read the blogs that I subscribe to and they are all different. Some show pictures of what they are working on ( most do). Some show tutorials of what they have created or a different way to do a certain technique, and some just talk (write) with no pictures at all.

I have been analyzing/thinking a lot about my blog and what I really want to do with it. Obviously I don't piece quilts fast enough to get them posted on a regular weekly basis and that was the main purpose of putting this blog together was to show completed quilts.

Many times I take pictures of things I am working on with the intention of posting about them and then time slips away and I am onto another project without ever getting it posted.

 I have been working on various projects but today I am posting that sometimes I just feel like I don't do enough with my blog. To me it looks like I don't get anything made when I haven't posted about it and I feel I have let you, my readers down.

I have made a list of projects I have accomplished over the last few months just to refresh you and me.

In May I made those 5 rice bags for Mother's day gifts. (There are only 4 pictured, I use mine all the time).
  In June I made body pillow covers and small pillow covers with family names on them.
  In July I pieced the weekender quilt and will finish quilting it tonight.

              ( I pieced a baby quilt that will go on the quilt frame when I finish the weekender.) 

I showed my grand-daughter how to thread her mothers sewing machine and practiced stitching straight lines with her.
 We made a pillow using the sting pattern I showed in an earlier post. I am using this same pattern to make a quilt top out of my string scraps.

Sometimes I post about my family but I mostly post about the quilts or projects I am working on.
I think I put to much pressure on myself to be like other bloggers (those who post 2 or 3 times a week) but I am not them.
I am me plodding along in this life of quilting, family, trials and triumphs, occasionally putting it all out there but more often, not.
Thank you to those of you who continue to take the time to read my posts and thank you to those who take the time to post a comment.

I hope your week is off to a good start.
Thanks for stopping by.

God Bless,

Ps, I forgot to add - put the binding on my daughters baby quilt that she made for her son.

Happy Stitching.
