It's Wednesday! For some reason that's exciting to me today. I have found some great new blogs this week, and I'm in love with so much quilted eye candy on the web!
For some fun, check out these sites:
• from the blue chair
• my selfsewn life
I use this app called Reeder for Mac, iPhone, and iPad to follow blogs. It works with Google Reader somehow. I was loving it until I went into Blogger and added blogs that I follow to my About Me page, now I've got some duplicates. I guess I shouldn't have messed with the Blogger interface. Apparently there are multiple ways to follow people? Who knew? This app is definitely a keeper, though. It's got a great interface.
I've also been having a lot of fun with Pinterest. Feel free to follow me as I giggle with glee at all of the wonderful things I find on the internet. Salted Nutella Tarts, I'm lookin' at you.
As far as my works in progress go, I have three.
1) Storm at Sea, yeah yeah yeah, it's out in my sewing room (aka, the clubhouse) as if I'm actively working on it, but I'm not.
2) This I'm excited about! It's a baby quilt that I'm working on. I get to make one for a boy on the way and one for a girl who's here already.
3) I'm also excited about this one! I'm playing along with my self sewn life's block party. I didn't know how to foundation piece with English paper piecing, and her tutorial was rockin'! I'm not wild about the colors in this one. It's just basted, though. My plan is to baste some more blocks and then I'll just swap around the pieces until I'm happy with all of the blocks before I sew them together. I'm chicken like that.
I'm totally starting to understand how Flickr groups help folks share their progress in a block party. I love seeing everyone else's color combinations. It seems weird to visit Flickr to check out photos the same way that I would visit Facebook to see what's going on with folks, though. Maybe I just need to get with it? I would love to hear how other folks incorporate Flickr when trying to be engaged in our giant virtual quilting world.
I hope everyone else's WIPs are coming along! I'm linking up with freshly pieced.
