Hello, Blog World!

I have admired sewing, craft, and especially quilting blogs for a few years now, and have used them to teach myself to sew. But, due to the fact that I don’t have a whole lot of free time and don’t always use designer fabrics, I never really wanted to start one. But, I recently went to the first meeting of the Triad Modern Quilt Guild. I was SOO excited to see a local chapter was starting here, and the meeting was not disappointing! We are a lovely eclectic group, with a variety of experience, ages, tastes, and lifestyles, so I think there is going be lots of inspiration and learning. After looking at the Triad MQG website, I saw that several members have blogs, so I decided it was long past time for me to make one.

A quick bio: I live in North Carolina with my husband, toddler son, 2 cats, and a dog. Our dog is a Papillon, and is a complete and utter spaz (as is my son…and husband…). My husband and I have been together 13 years – almost half my life!! – and we describe our life as “chaotic bliss”. We are a happy house but with juggling family, work, friends, and our interests, things are definitely crazy sometimes. I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world but I do wish there were more hours in the day…or that I didn’t need to sleep, how much crafty time would that free up?! Creativity keeps me sane and my family is nice enough to be guinea pigs for my projects on a regular basis. I am so excited to join the blog world!
