A Slow Start

At least, slower than I expected. One doesn't realize how much time real life takes until trying to carve out space for something that takes a lot of time and attention. Somehow blogging seems to be an easy thing to put off, even though, like most people, I like hearing myself "talk."

The new patterns are coming along and soon there will be a couple of baby quilts showing for sale. I'm saving my pennies for some things that will help move things along and make them easier. For now, much is done the old fashioned way.

My design pad holds several quilt designs that I can hardly wait to get into pattern form. I'm learning the ropes on the first couple of them and hoping that makes the process move along more quickly in the future. Right now I have designs lined up like planes on a runway, waiting for their turn to soar.

So I grow in baby steps, so anxious to run but knowing skipping steps can mean trouble.

Enough philosophy, it's time to quilt!

Beginning at the Beginning

Where does one begin when starting a new venture? This one began by accident several weeks ago when I drew out a new pattern and emailed it to a friend for her opinion. It's public beginning is right here, on this very empty blog page. One that I hope is soon filled with tips and tricks, answers to questions, services to offer and quilts and patterns for sale.

Right this minute, it's a place for the ramblings of someone who is excited at the prospect of this new venture and, at the same time, wondering what in the world she's gotten herself into. Hopefully, it will be sorted out here and, before too long, I will sound much less confused and have a lot more to offer.

For now, I say Thank You for taking this journey with me.
And, as always,
Happy Quilting!
