And I would love some advice and input on what I should be doing. I've never blogged before. The addy is:

If you have time, please take a look and let me know what to do to make it interesting. I just figured out how to add photos, which was not easy for one of the technologically impaired.

I started one a few months ago. About sewing, quilting and embroidery. I just kinda of blog about what's on my mine about sewing etc and what I'm currently involved in. But not having a working digital camera cuts down on it somewhat as I have no pictures to show. Nice thing about blogging is you have your own personal soapbox to talk about whatever you want.

Do you have any suggestions for improvement on mine?

You're right, it is neat to just put down what is on my mind about the quilts and how I got to where I am today.

I think yours is a nice blog. I can't really recommend anything. I'm not a writer by any means so mine is all over the place. Mine is

I enjoyed it..Your work is beautiful and I was interested in the stories behind the quilts. Years ago, I started quilting and quickly dropped it as accuracy is so not my strong point. Maybe some pointers on how you achieve that accuracy and how you managed the curves..Am I correct in thinking that you have lots of machines? Maybe do a machine of the week or month feature. But overall, it was interesting reading..Thank you and I will come back to it.

I'm glad you like it.

Per Mary's request, I posted a story today about my avatar, and how it was made with people-powered machines.

I like your blog! Well done.

I've been adding pictures to mine as I go along. Mary has given me several good questions to answer, and good tips.

Great blog. Enjoyed reading the stories. Could really relate to indecision choosing from all the decorative stitches available now.

What machine is the whale machine?

No suggestions for you, but I'm really enjoying reading your blog. I'll add it to my Google Reader list so that I'll get to read all your new posts!
