I started at quilterblogs.com. It was easy to pick an interesting blog post. After reading it, I left a comment and then scrolled down the sidebar to find an unfamiliar blog. From there I was led to so many blogs I've never seen before. If I came to a dead end where only shops were listed or there was no blogroll, I started back at the beginning. How refreshing. I got to see some great work and now I have a new source of inspiration.
The one rule I made for myself, was to leave a comment wherever I went. Quality sewing time is diverted to create blogs, especially the nicer ones with the appealing, inspiring pictures. A small comment left behind is a nice way of saying thankyou and I may meet lots of like minded people. A real win-win situation.
Lots is written about being a "no-reply blogger". Don't let that stop you from leaving a comment. You can't get a reply because there is no return address to your comment. But you are still entitled to have your say.
I have been doing some machine piecing. Trying to catch up with the Barbara Brackman civil war blocks blog
and I set myself a goal to make 20 of these blocks last week. They are sewn in a foundation pieced technique. I fell short of my target.
