Grow Your Blog 2014
Hi there , if you are new to my blog , welcome , it is always nice to have visitors and I really appreciate my faithful followers . My name is Sheila and I live in rural Nova Scotia which I love and I often share photos of my surroundings as well as my quilting . I am so happy you could stop by today for the Grow Your Blog 2014 that is hosted by Vicki of 2 bags full , this is my first time taking part in this event and I know it will be a lot of fun discovering new blogs and making new friends far and wide .
I have been quilting since around 2000 but sewing since I was knee high to a grasshopper , I watched and learned from my mom and my grandmother . I started out making clothing for my dolls but then in highschool ,I made my own clothes and did so for many years UNTIL the quilting bug hit and since then I have been mostly doing patchwork and very rarely some clothing for my granddaughters .
A few years ago I got bit by another bug , the fabric postcard bug and it is really quite incurable , I am addicted , so much so I have hosted a few postcard exchanges in the past little while and with plans to do another real soon . Why postcards you may ask , well it is simple really , they are small , can be very creative and fun to make and when I send them out they are very well recieved . It is also a great way to use those small scraps we all collect and they can be embellished as much or as little as you want , fun fun !
I decided to just do a collage of some of the projects I have done in the past little while ...
How about a small giveaway , I will make two postcards and leave the back blank so you can send them to whoever you wish , your choice of theme , how would that be ?
Thanks again for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of the hop . It has been so very nice to meet you .
