On my last blog, I told you that I have been very busy writing on HubPages.  I have written almost 200 hubs since October.  This probably doesn't sound like much, but when I write a hub, I have to take the time to research the topic, add photos, and edit it and make sure that it is a high quality hub.  Since my blogs are more personal and chatty, I do try to check them for spelling errors and the like, but I don't feel like I have to do research or write a certain length. In fact, I try to keep my blog posts short!

I have really enjoyed writing about anything and everything, and making a few pennies at the same time.

Michele asked me to let her know about some of my hubs.  Here are some  that might interest you. These are quilty or crafty ones.

What is the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative?

I also have a series that describes types of quilts, and so far have separate hubs that describe traditional, liberated, art, Amish, African, modern, mystery, scrap, and sampler quilts.  There are also a couple of quilting book reviews. The author, Laura Wasilowski even put a link to this hub on her blog. I like this book review because I was able to add a video of Laura singing which showed the quilts in the book. I hadn't thought of a video trailer for a book, but it is an awesome idea.

Other topics include genealogy, saving money, making money, investing money, book reviews, parenting, and anything else I think about writing.  Here are some that might interest you.

I am back to work full time now, so that means I will have even less time for reading and writing hubs, reading and writing blogs, and even quilting.

Lost For a Whole Month

Oh my goodness! My last post was in January, and here's March.  What happened to February?  Sorry, I didn't mean to be missing.

I was on HubPages, writing hubs, and reading hubs, learning how to write hubs, making comments on hubs.

I ventured out to read blogs instead yesterday, and oh swoon!  So many beautiful quilts.  I remember what happens to me when I read blogs.  I want to make every quilt I see.  Of course, the fact that it takes me forever to finish a single one is a very small detail!

You'll be happy to know that I found my lost block.  Sorry to make you worry about my missing all month long.  What? You don't remember?  Oh yeah, it was a BOM and now I found it.  It was under another WIP.  Yes I can still call it a WIP instead of a UFO as long as it is in plain sight.

Technically it is two blocks, and I even put them blocks together.  All the blocks are sewn now, and some of the setting stars.
