Welcome to all of the Visitors from......


Glad to have you visit my little blog, take a moment to read a few post, enjoy the music (or turn your speakers off).  I'm honored to be this weeks Blog of the Week.


If you are a regular reader and  haven't visited the Stitch-n-Frame shop, I invite you to do so, simply click on this link, or any of the Stitch-n-Frame names that I have conveniently linked back to their site.  Once you get to the main page, click on the On Line Catalog button (I hope my link works) and it will take you to a huge host of fun places to hang out for a while. 

If you are new to my blog, I am a Wife, Mom to 4 teenagers and a longarm quilter who tries to make enough spending money to not make a serious dent in the old checkbook! Let me try to explain my math, it goes something like this:  Honey, I went to the quilt shop today and it only cost you $25.  Wow! that's good sweetheart (he is a doll and never complains), but if you only spent $25 why does the checkbook say $75?  Oh, I finished a quilt and I made $50, so it only cost you $25.  Makes sense to me.....

Grace passed along my blog info to Stitch-n-Frame, and if you would like to see some quilts that I have done for Grace click here: Insanely Cheap Quilting this will take you directly to the quilts that I have done for Grace.  She is such a sweetheart, I posted about the work she is doing trying to get quilts to kids before they go to the hospital. You can read more about Grace and her efforts here.

Speaking of quilts...I've got a few to do, so I'd better get to it!  But before I do, a quick thanks to Sherry M!  We had a fun email conversation about my music and being Blog of the Week at the Stitch-n-Frame Shop.

I'll be back soon with more quilts to share, I've seen a cool quilt I'd like to make and of course I just don't have the "right" fabric on hand.

thanks for checking on me,
hugs,
joanne

love to hear what you've got to say..................

I always enjoy "checking on you" and I've never once heard a song on your blog that I didn't like....I know it bothers a lot of people....but I enjoy your choices and hearing something other than my own brain when I read is a pleasant break!

Hugs,
Kelly
