It's finally here - Grow Your Blog day!! A chance to find some new or new-to-you blogs and make some new friends. I hope you're as excited as I am!
For those of you who are new to this blog, my name is Sarah and I live near Nashville, Tennessee. I have two beautiful granddaughters…
Emmy, on the left, is almost 2, and Lilli is 6 and in kindergarten. You'll see pictures of them frequently on the blog!
I'm a fairly new quilter and blogger - both habits started about the same time, four years ago.
|My stash four years ago - I'd be embarrassed to show what it looks like now!|
I hope you'll stop over and visit there - it's part of today's Grow Your Blog hop too! There you can find out more about the quilt ministry - how it started and some of the great stories that go along with the quilts.
I love blogging because it has introduced me to the world of quilting and quilt bloggers - a wonderful group of folks who are invested in the idea of making the world a better place, one quilt at a time!
Every Friday I host "Can I Get A Whoop Whoop Friday" where you can post a link to your own blog post about your accomplishments for the week. It doesn't have to be a finish - just something that's got you dancing the happy dance! And even if you don't link up, you ought to stop by and check out all the great projects that people are working on. You can check out this week's Whoop Whoop Friday here! I hope you'll join in the fun!
And coming up in just a month or so, we'll be starting the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2014! (Looks like I need to make the 2014 button!) The Challenge started in 2011, with 47 quilters donating 60 quilts. 2012 saw 55 quilters and 94 quilts going to charities, and last year we had 65 quilters giving away 127 quilts! There are wonderful sponsors who donate prizes to help thank each participant for joining it, too. It's a great way to help out in a larger cause and make a difference in the world. You can read more about the challenge by clicking the button in the bar at the top of my blog, or sign up to follow this blog and you'll be sure to see when we start up again!
So that's the skinny on my blog - I hope you'll take the time to look around a little bit and see some more! I'm a firm believer in eye candy, and try to have great pictures to inspire others. If you leave me a comment, I'll always try to respond (unless you're a no-reply blogger!) because that's the best way to get to know you! But if you feel more comfortable "blurking" (my personal term for those folks who blog-lurk!) that's fine too!
