Hi dear friends! I just love this funny face! Guess what she’s looking at?
I don’t see this kitten every day but now and then she visits our garden. This time I wasn’t the only one behind the window …
Nero was just looking, didn’t say anything. But the kitten thought better back out slowly …
So she tip toed away …
This post is sort of new beginning. I have been thinking a lot about blogging, mine and others. Then Rachel put in words those thoughts and maybe yours, too. That post shows how important blogs still are as you can see from the interesting and long comments on her post. It’s getting more quiet in blogland and I’m sad for that. I miss the time when there was happening “too much” around the blogs! Always so many interesting hops and qals to join, so much ideas and inspiration to put into effect. But now often I roll up and down trying to find something to read and something to get the big ‘wow’ smile on my face!
There are of course still many many inspiring, fantastic blogs but I fish … wish there were more. I don’t like to put blogs in any order but this time I like to lead you to my two favourite blogs: Rachel’s “STITCHED IN COLOR” and Jayne’s “TWIGGY AND OPAL”. I’m sure both of these blogs are known by most of you but if you are new in blogland, have a look, I’m sure you will love them! Both ladies are so talented and have all the time new ideas! They know how to mix the colours best way and wow, where they find the time and energy to make so much! I don’t think they sleep much. I enjoy their writing and beautiful photos (photos inspires me a lot) and I appreciate that they show how to do things.
As I’m back to quilting business (already some custom orders in line) I thought it’s time to take time to fix my blog, too. Yesterd I started to make new header, using hours for no result. And if you noticed even have now mistake in the blog’s name. For some reason that I can’t understand, I couldn’t add the mark: ‘ … so now it writes NEROS POST?! Every time I pressed that button, the computer stucked for a long time. Have to find an other way to do it. Also because I use wordpress free theme, there are some limits. For example I can’t choose free the size of the header photo. I wanted to make this time only one line, but I guess I shall make the same 10 squares to get this done.
Anniversaries haven’t been celebratied often lately. Somehow life has changed and we are tired to do ‘this and that’. I used to have fun in my blog when celebrating dogs’ birthdays and at least the blog anniversary. Dogs did give ways and picked winners. When I started my blog in 2010 I was at home and had all the time to figure things out on my own. It took lot of time but was so much fun! So now when I’m again ‘at home’ I think it’s good to enjoy blogging again! It is so fantastic to have blogger and quilter friends all around the world!
So I’m planning to celebrate soon my blog’s 6th anniversary. I’m also thinking (trying) to post more often (the time I spend just thinking what to look in the internet, I can also write myself). I like to play with words and today when vacuum cleaning Nero’s hairs, I started to make a list:
- Monday Makings
- Fabric Fuesday
- Wordless Wednesday
- Thursday Things (tutorial, tips, this and that)
- Fun for Friday
- Super Saturday
- Sunday Stash
Hmmm, don’t get too excited, I don’t think it’s possible to write every day under these themes but I’m sure this list inspires and helps me to write more and not only to show quilt projects. Perhaps this gives also ideas to you to post more! Let me know if you have more ideas for the themes or if you wish to see/read about something. I like to make tutorials so there will be some new of those, too.
My hb has always been very supportive about my quilting and blogging and I thought to ask him to give some of his special, secret recipies. Would you like to try delicious recipies from a really good, Greek chef?! That could be some times on Mondays.
So now I think it’s time to do some hand quilting to have perhaps quilt finish for Fabric Tuesday! Or … perhaps I shall play with my friend …
Thank you my friends for being there! Thank you for reading my blog and for writing so sweet, friendly and fun comments! Thank you and welcome many new followers!
