It is 1:40 in the morning and I am making my first post on my blog. I have been wary of blogs for such a long time. However, today I listened to a podcast that influenced me. The speaker was talking about how blogs are a place to show your life, that you can go back and remember. That touched me. Silly, I know, but it did.

I have forgotten so many things in the last 5 years as my kids have grown. They are the center of my world, but I have forgotten so many of the details that I swore I never would. So, blogging seems like a good place to start.

I started this blog about quilting because that seems to be my new hobby. My new focus to de-stress. Which is so funny because sometimes to TOTALLY stresses me out. I really like learning and watching the fabric come together. It is so much fun.

I have learned that really....I can't sew a straight line. That is okay though. None of my points or corners match. But I don't mind. I love trying and doing my best.

So, here I am. Writing my first blog. I think that my next post will include some pictures of the quilt that I am working on. It is using the disappearing nine patch. Scary, because I have mostly just been sewing charm packs together.
This is the second big step up for me. The first big step was my quilt for my eldest daughter. I have posted my picture of that. I think it is adorable because my five year old picked out all of the fabric, and then told me that she wanted pinwheels. I didn't feel confident enough to do all pinwheels, so I did a four patch and pinwheels that I sashed. What do you think?

Thank you for reading my blog!
