Getting my blog on…

I have been putting off blogging long enough.  I attempted to start a blog the summer of 2013.  I paid an etsy seller to create my ideal blog.  She took my money and never produced a product.  Etsy refunded my money when the seller never responded to any of my communication.  Now I am a little gun shy getting another blog creator.  Here goes my own effort!

So, my biggest issue with writing a blog was that it would take away from my sewing time.  Sad, but true!  I am working through the issue as you can read.

I had thought about quilting for years, and I finally made the decision to teach myself.   I started quilting in November of 2010.  My husband, Les, bought me a Janome sewing machine for my birthday.  Some of my co-workers were aghast that I was getting such a domestic gift, but I was really excited.  I was a closet crafter; most people didn’t know that I had skills!

I am very fortunate to have a great LQS nearby.  I took a beginner’s quilting class.  It was a great way to learn the basics.  I also joined their Block of the Month program.  It was good place for me to get started in the quilting world.  I learned a lot during that process.  The blogging world has also been an amazing teacher.  I have been fortunate to find many wonderful quilters and fabric designers that are willing to share what they have learned.  It has been 3 years of learning, sewing, swearing, and some ripping, but mostly loving quilting.

It is time to start blogging about my experiences.  I have made lots of progress, but there are still many challenges I would like to tackle, some WIPs to finish, and a fabric stash that needs to be used!

Thanks for reading my blog and joining me as I quilt my way through life.

About My Pieced Life

I am in love with all things quilting. My sewing room has many works-in-progress and a large stash of fabric. I have big plans and lots of ideas of creations I would like to make. My wonderful husband supports my obsession and Carson, my Australian terrier, keeps me company while I sew.
