Blogging Friends are the BEST!!! has this to say about blog, blogging......


  Show Spelled [blawg, blog] Show IPA noun, verb, blogged, blog·ging.

1. a Web site containing the writer's or group of writers' own experiences, observations, opinions, etc., and often having images and links to other Web sites.

verb (used without object)
2. to maintain or add new entries to a blog.

Here's what it means to me:


1. Great place to meet wonderful people.
2. Valuable source for new ideas and project.
3. Enabler - ;) (you know what I'm talking about!)
4. HUGE responsibility!
5. All of this and much more.....

So today I'm going to share a couple of quilts that recently came my way.  The first one is from a very famous blogger.  This gal is a hoot!  Everyone absolutely LOVES her and she has the best little shop on the net.  Know who it is yet?  Well, if you guessed.....
you were correct.  She is one of my very, very favorite bloggers!  I know when Kelly writes a post it's going to be filled with valuable information and loads of fun.  I'm sure most of you already know and follow her blog, but if you don''s a MUST DO in the blogging world.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Kelly and I Have a Notion shopping.

A little info about the quilt before the pictures.  Kelly needed this quilt done ASAP and asked if I could do a quick turnaround.  Not a problem.  I can and will do quick turnarounds for special people when the pressure is on.  I've been there myself, pushed it out till I was stressed because of the deadline. Now, I don't think this little quilt was that critical, but it was a cute little quilt that took me no time at all.  The flip side to that for me, is I didn't take as many pictures as I should have.  So I only have 3 pictures to share.  Here's one....

Got it in, got it out.  No problem.  Very easy design. Fastforward a little and I get an email from Kelly.  She has a friend who is in need of something done quick. It's a signature piece for a wedding.....ha!! who hasn't been there?  Yep, a week (or less) before the event and we're still plugging away.  Totally insane isn't it?  Anyway, sure I can do it. It was another small piece so I could get it on and off in one evening. Here's what Kelly's friend Diane's piece looked like.....
It is a beautiful little quilt/wall hanging that I know the bride is going to cherish for years to come.  I did have the opportunity to chat with Diane after she got the piece back and she's was so easy to chat with and a real doll. 

Okay, so I've got one more blogger to chat about this morning. 
Sandi over at.....
has listed me on her list for the Versitle Blogger Award. Look for a posting from me in the next couple of days to see where I take this one.  Sandi's blog is fun place to hang out as she post about all of the fun stuff that she's working on.  Head over her direction and check out the other bloggers on the list.

I'm thinking that's enough for today...See I told you blogging friends are the best!! AND I only shared about three of them!! I'm thinking I've made up for my last post when I couldn't find anything to rattle on about...other blog of mine for more pictures

But before I go, don't forget to hit the
from Kelly and Diane. Here's the link:

Thanks for checking on me,
