Grow Your Own Blog!

Good Morning!
Welcome to my blog!  Thank you to Vicki of 2 Bags Full! for letting me join over 200! Bloggers!  Wow!

I joined up today as I have been away from my blog due to illnesses in our family, you know how that goes! And my followers went on to other blogs, and it will be great if they can find me and come back.  So, I will be slowly adding what I am working on, hoping to slowly finish up my many UFOs!

With destashing a few years ago and then moving, I found sooo many masterpieces to do, so I just want to try to work on and finish one or two projects at a time vs a flurry and then get overwhelmed!  I really want slow but sure progress!

I will have a giveaway, but did not get it organized, I am away visiting family and want to do some quilt shopping while here!

As you can see from previous pictures, I am participating in a few new projects and online groups, so have a look and join us!  I really enjoyed Bonnie Hunter's Grand Island Mystery  quilt over the holidays, this is ready for the rows to come together!  The free instructions are still available on her blog, but hurry, she will be taking down soon!




I will leave comments open for a few weeks, and then draw for a giveaway for a few fat quarters! Just a comment to say hello and where you live, I am always curious where you all are.
Please enjoy visiting all the other blogs and follow those as well!
Take care, Have a wonderful day!  Happy Quilting, Leslie
