I don’t like to feel pressured to blog. Anybody else? Blogging to me, is supposed to be fun. I know that as bloggers, it is fashionable to blog at LEAST once a week. While attending classes on building a blog it is suggested that you should blog, at the very least, once a week. I don’t want to feel like I NEED or SHOULD blog. Really? If I don’t have anything to share, why would I want to bore you?
Personally sometimes it drives me a little crazy when others do blog each week with their makes. They could have several makes a week, and it makes me feel inadequate. I know, that the intent is to inspire, but sometimes- it just makes me antsy.
So…. this blog is dedicated to all of you- those like me, that procastinate, and think about the many things they want to make. Those that make multiple lists of Things to Sew and Make that don’t get completed. Those that have closets full of UFO’s.
HELLO MY NAME IS TRACEY AND I AM A DREAMER!
So what have I been doing the last few weeks? Well, there was that visit to Michigan to see my folks. Kenny and Will couldn’t believe all the snow!
Then there was the recovery from that trip…… Now, I am getting ready for another trip- to North Carolina, for SEW SOUTH. I am pretty excited about this… and anxious. I am going alone to Charlotte, North Carolina. I will know a few people there that I have met before. This whole traveling thing is totally pushing myselft wayyyyy outside of my comfort zone. My nice safe familiar square box. I know it’s very good for me though- so I am gonna just go for it!
Between trips, I finally finished Kenny’s youth pastors’ daughter’s baby quilt. It is a first baby for the pastor and his wife and when I heard they were having a girl, I just knew that it had to be Heather Ross’ Briar Rose print all the way! It is so sweet and feminine.
