The Final Count...

While I had hoped to entice a few people to follow my blog with a give away, I have come to realize that it doesn't really matter what size my audience is. Even if I had zero followers... I would still put my fingers to the keyboard and share.

I have come to realize that this blog is really more of a journal of sorts for me. This is a place to share my thoughts and ideas, quilts quilts and projects... 

Total count of empty spools for 2015?
That's what it took for the 25 quilts, a few table runners and other small miscellaneous projects!  As you can see my jar was overflowing :)  I obviously had lots of fun!

Speaking of fun... yesterday we returned home after a long weekend/business trip.  We spent some time with family, very special friends and made a few new ones along the way. Upon our return we find ourselves very, very tired!  We were in bed last night before 8 p.m. and slept for a glorious 10 hours!  And I can pretty much guarantee that we will have an early bedtime again tonight!  

On the agenda for today?  Laundry and catching up on some paperwork.  Bleh.   Tomorrow???  I will be found in my studio.

Be blessed!



  1. I save my spools too. I didn't use up that many but I also use the large cones threads so they do take longer to go through.

    By the way, I write my blogs for me too. It's nice when someone looks at it. Better if they comment. But I get that a lot of people just like to browse without commenting and I'm okay with that. I do that too.

    1. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement. :)

  2. Hi Melva
    I found your blog through "Quilting Blogs". You were really quilting up a storm to use up all those spools - wow!

    As for blogging, I think most of us write blogs because we enjoy it. It is a great record of what we are starting, and what we have achieved. Plus sometimes a bit of "life" gets in the blog as well.
    It should not be a numbers game - the big names in quilting will always have a huge following. Just write as you would talk to a friend.

    1. thanks for your encouragement and for taking the time to leave a comment. :)
