The Overwhelmed Newbie

Today is the beginning of my fourth week as a blogger.  Thanks to Beth at Plum and June, I am getting a much needed education about the hows and whats on a blog.  I have been visiting the sites, leaving comments (haven't gotten to everyone yet), following, reading tons of emails and searching for who I am and want to be on this site.  As a limited technology person, I am feeling light years behind and scrambling to catch up with the rest of the Let's Get Acquainted group and the rest of the tech savvy world.

In the meantime, I am relaxing (so exhausted from teaching 1st graders) and getting reacquainted with my family, my dogs and myself.  I realized I have too many projects going on and spent the weekend focusing on one, the patriotic quilt.  I also bought an app for my iphone to help with my pictures (thanks to my daughter) - tell me what you think!

  1. I like what you have done! Bigger pictures are always good for us old folks. Nice to meet a fellow newbe!

  2. Love that big pile of HST's. They are a lot of work and yours look great!


  3. Love your fabric choices. Good for you on your blogging efforts. I haven't worked up the courage to try it yet.

    1. Pat - It's a bit scary but I'm having a great time.
