15 years of blogging.............


5697 posts in 15 years...who would have thought I still had anything to say.  Almost 75,000 comments have been left on my posts.

On the sewing front: I found another fabric for binding and sewed it on the African colorwash wall hanging.  I have 2 sides hand stitched and a start on the third side.


This photo is to show the print on the binding fabric (click on photo to enlarge).  The light shining directly on it makes the tiger stripes and binding look brown but they are black.  Maybe I'll have a finish to show tommorrow.

Congratulations Wanda! I have followed for almost 11 yrs and have learned so much from you. The colorwash class was phenomenal and I learned about webbing my tops and so many other things I can't think of right now. You have contributed to my growth and encouragement as a quilter. Thank you!!

I'm so very glad you started blogging and sharing your quilts, that I found your blog ? years ago, and *especially* glad you keep blogging and haven't gone to solely to IG or FB. Thank You for all that.

Interesting - yesterday's post, you thought the gray/black binding was too dull. Yet this one seems even more subdued? But we all know photos and monitors don't tell the whole story. I bet it's far different in person. I do like the new binding.

15 years - I think I totally missed mine in April - started the same year. congratulations

Andra Gayle said...

I always love reading your blog and I am amazed at the number of quilts you get finished! I was looking through my own blog and more than half of the quilts I posted in the last 3 years are still unfinished. And the new ideas keep coming so I have a lot of sewing to do.

Congratulations! I remember starting mine in November 2006 just as a personal diary. I was absolutely shocked when I got the first comment. Yours is a constant source of inspiration for so many people, especially me! I'm grateful that you are still blogging.

Anne Ibach said...

Funny, but I was just thinking about you and your blog while I was making my breakfast... thinking what a huge job it is to do a daily blog post and being amazed that you've kept it up so long!

For me, It's a lot of stress to try to keep up daily posts for more than a week or so.

You're a rock star!!!

Marie said...

Congratulations Wanda! I always like to check in and see what wonders are being created in your sewing room.

Nann said...

Happy blogaversary to you, Wanda! I enjoy your quilts and your garden.

Penny Schine Gold said...

What a great choice you ended up with for the binding! Definitely worth the extra searching. And congratulations on 15 years of blogging--I love watching what comes forth from your imagination and love of shape, color, and pattern.

Hi Wanda,
It was in early July, about eight years ago that I happened upon your blog andI have been checking it out every morning ever since. I have found inspiration, magical color combinations, wonderful quilt patterns and all sorts of ideas about gardening as well. Thank you, for such abiding pleasure. You gift all of us so well.
