My first post on this blog was on August 13, 2008, so it has been ten years since I shut down my previous blog and started this one. I basically started this blog showing a recent quilt I had received in a swap as if I knew everyone and everyone knew me and there was no need for introductions.
I've written a lot of posts over the last ten years, and Blogger is slow in moving from page to page. I thought I would look over some of my older posts and give you some of the highlights. I've started almost 100 quilts in my lifetime and have finished about 80. You can see some of the quilt reveals here.
Some of my favorite posts are the end of the year recaps. Even though I hardly ever think I have done enough, they give me a quick snapshot of the things I finished that year and (sometimes) make me feel better about my productivity. My biggest takeaway in looking at these is that I like to make small projects! I can see a marked improvement in my volume and quality of projects in 2015 and on-wards.
Besides making quilts, I have also enjoyed showing them to you. I really enjoy the conversations I have had with my readers, and try to keep things interesting by presenting my quilts in a variety of ways. Finding good settings involves my taking my quilts for a walk. On this day in 2014, I took my rail fence quilt for a walk.
I took Simply Squares for a walk and made a slideshow out of it.
I've made a collage for a still unfinished quilt, Lansing Leaves.
In 2017, I had my favorite presentation yet, of a gifted quilt, The Earth Laughs in Flowers, where we took pictures at a park, and made a smilebox presentation.
Besides quilts and other crafty projects, I started taking daily photographs and enjoyed showing those to you as well.
Thank you for taking a walk through memory lane with me. To celebrate this big anniversary, I will be making a small gift and sending it to one of you, my precious readers! It could be a postcard, an ATC, a coaster, who knows? I don't.
To enter to win the drawing, just leave a comment by August 30. I want to give my followers time to find this little post on this little blog. What's your favorite post? What do you like best about my blog? Lavish me with praise!
Thank you for your visits and comments over the years. I look forward to many more!
P.S. Cluck Cluck Sew has also recently had an anniversary and wrote a list of things she has learned over the years. It is such a good idea, and I thought about editing this post to make my own list, but you ight as well just read hers, because my list would be similar.
