Almost done............and 3000 posts........

Yesterday afternoon I cut 4.5" squares from my flannel scraps for another quilt to work on at our twice monthly sew in today.  Then last night I started sewing this TAW together.  I have about 5 more strips to add and then I can press it and photograph it.  I'm thinking about bordering this one to make it a little larger.

This is my 3000th post.  It is amazing.....I didn't think I would have enough to write about when I started my blog.  I consider it my public diary and a reference; I have looked back many times to see when I did a particular thing.  It is also my photo album, full of progress reports on several hundred quilts over a 7.5 year time period.

I think it is fascinating how blogs connect us as well as serving as a diary and reference tool. I have used my blog to find time references many times.

Wanda, I would not be the quilter I am without your blogs. It keeps me going and makes me keep mine sort of up to date. I use yours as a reference also. It is amazing how much you pack into your blog. It is a true treasure trove. I want to be able to post daily, but can't seem to do it regularly. Getting the photos from the camera to the computer and cropped is my bottleneck.

I have been blogging for about the same amount of time I didn't blog daily the first several years so have less than you do. I think you are one of the first blogs that I started to follow and have been amazed by your color choices so many times over the years - I always love looking at your quilts. If I ever have a question or ask for your advice you are always quick to respond - thanks for being there and sharing.

Sandra said...

Charlotta said...

You are so organized and disciplined,mhere fore your blog is interesting to us and hekpful to you. I also started my blog as a record of my quilt said - and I even went back and added a bunch of quilts I'd made before I started the blog. But then about a year ago, due to a computer problem, I had to pause, and I've never gone back. I want to go back and catch my blog up to date, but the job becomes bigger and bigger the longer I wait, so there's no good reason not to do it now!

Beth said...

I wish I was so disciplined!!! But alas I'm more like a chicken... and off to check out that sparkly thing... and I really don't have much to blog about, at least recently!

DBrez said...

Happy 3000th! I stop by every day to see what you're up to! I've learned a lot from watching you work. Thanks for letting us watch and many happy returns! Donna in Harwich, MA dmcavanagh@yahoo.com

Chris said...

Wanda, I love your blog and I so look forward to reading it every day. I sincerely hope you have another 3000 posts in you! The quilting world needs them. I always learn from you and am inspired by your stunning quilts. Your garden photos also please me because I live in the southwest and we do not have nearly your variety of foliage. However, I do share with you a love of amaryllis. I buy several every year and try to coax them to bloom on the following years. Sometimes I am successful, sometimes not so much!

Fran Hill said...

Congratulations and thank you 3,000 to the 3,000th power for your blog. Your posts are either the last thing I see at night or the first thing I look for in the morning (depending on how late I have stayed up sewing ;->). I so look forward to your pictures--of every bloom inside, how your garden fares outside, the delicious treats, and, above all, your stunning quilts in glorious colors, as well as your insights into creativity, industry, and joy. Thank you again and again.
