Greetings from Switzerland on yet another dreary, January day!
First of all, I would like to apologize to my readers for my blogging absence. I have lots of photos though, to help make up for it.
Since I last wrote, I have been very busy learning a lot of exciting new things, some of which, you can get a glimpse of, below. I will try to post more on these topics as soon as possible.
The art of quilting
The art of blogging
Blog what you love! This week I’ve been planning a few future posts.
The art of homemaking
A ‘creative date’ with myself and a nice Austrian magazine that has been sitting on my shelf for a few years, waiting for a photo shoot. It’s the Austrian version of Country Home/ Country Living.
The art of cooking
Since Christmas I’ve been learning the art of cooking from my pantry. (Is it possible that I have only been once since the New Year to the grocery store?!!)
So back to Quilting.
Yesterday, when I decided to start the beginning of my blogging week with a “beginner quilter” series, I thought I had the idea all sussed out. I thought “ok, this will be easy”. I mean I have been plotting* and planning the launch of this series since before this blog existed!
As usual, nothing is as easy as it seems at first!
Take quilting for example. I know I should give back to the quilting community that has given me so much support over the last year.
I realize that I should be putting out tutorials into our online community, but after a lot of thought, I have decided that tutorials, maybe just aren’t my thing right now, because I am a ‘beginner quilter’.
If you are a ‘beginner quilter’ too, how ever you may define that term, let me give you some advice. There are so many resources for beginner quilters out there, you only have to look. For this reason, I am more than happy to be your tour guide of the online Quilty realm. (Now that’s something I could write a tutorial on….!)
As quilters, beginner or not, we all have something to offer to our quilting community both on and offline. I am in the process of finding out what my personal and Quilty goals are, so I can update my blog, in order to make my blog a ‘springboard’ for achieving those goals and for leading the Blogging and Quilty life that I want to live.
I’m sorry if I am stressing you out talking about goals, but I have learnt that making goals and meeting them is my way of maintaining a stress free life and that is my ultimate goal.
For any of my, Quilty or Non Quilty, readers who may have actually read this post to the end, I thank you!!
If you have anything to comment on, from this post or in general, I would love to hear from you!
Sweet Dreaming readers!
* I mean the literary term here.
