In Good Company

This morning I was catching up on reading some of the blogs I follow on bloglovin' and came across a post from The Joyful Quilter that shared her news of being included in a list of Top 100 blogs you must follow in 2021.  As I read it and saw that she found it to be an actual list I started thinking...

"Last week I had a spammy looking email offering congratulations to me because I had been included in the Top 100 Quilting Blogs."  Now I didn't take it too seriously for several reasons....

A) My days have been full and I didn't really have any extra time to look into the legitimacy of the list.

1)  There are lots and LOTS of other quilters and designers out there with blogs that see a lot more traffic that mine.

c)  I have been getting notifications that the RSS email subscription through feedburner will be ending in July and I figured this was just something that would replace that.  I have been reading blogs that have been explaining this fact and watching to see what replacements might be available.

Shoot, I have procrastinated in updating my husband's website because I didn't want to "ruin a perfectly good and quiet afternoon with the struggles and difficulties I encounter... every. single. time!"

So, here's your heads up!  If you have been getting notifications via email, one of the best alternatives for staying informed of new posts is by following me on bloglovin'.  I do not pretend to be an expert on this and only now chime in because I am in the midst of the Santa Fe Trail Sew Along and would hate for any of you to miss out on the next block, scheduled to published on July 1. 

So... with that being said... It is only because of all of you that I am included in the list (#78, btw) with all the amazing bloggers in the world!  From the bottom of my heart... Thank you. 💗

I'll be in my studio prepping some clothing from a customer for a memory quilt in her mother's honor... hiding from the world of technology that I manage to blindly fumble my way through with the help of tech support and youtube videos.  

This is the block pattern I will be using.

Quilt Happy!
