Today I'm one of the hosting blogs on Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop Day. If you are visiting for the first time, hello, welcome and thank you for dropping in!
How long have you been quilting? - My grandma taught me to do English paper piecing when I was little and I really got interested in patchwork again last year. I think having very small children is sometimes a bit like Groundhog Day, or the Dark Ages, and I disappeared into it and didn't do any making for a while! Now I'm trying to get back in the habit.
Quilting tips - cut accurately, square up and press often. After that, everything is easy, haha!
Blogging tips - Do reply to comments if you possibly can. When I first started blogging I didn't realise how nice it is to get a reply. Do try not to worry what other people think. Don't call a post Hooray for F*t Bot*om Girls as you attract some visitors via search engine who must be very disappointed to land on a quilting blog.
Favourite fabric - I either get into them and then can't remember what I ever saw in them, or I don't realise how much I love and need them until they're gone. At the moment I really like plain linen. I have an embarrassingly small stash, because fabric is expensive and I tend to buy with a project in mind, but I don't feel too guilty for the occasional impulse buy because my husband is a technophile and his purchases are way more expensive than mine.
Favourite craft book - actually bloggers are so generous with their knowledge that I have learned a lot and got a lot of inspiration from my favourite blogs. Sometimes I'm quite stubborn too and like trying to work stuff out, even if it means re-inventing the wheel.
Favourite quilting tool - rotary cutter. Least favourite but most useful - seam ripper
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog - I hope you'll come again!:-) Please visit my hop-mate Sarah Lou, and finally a big thank you to Beth for organising the party.
My tutorial for the hop is here - please do let me know if anything is unclear, or if you have any other comments or suggestions. Before I start I thought you might like to see a photo of my helper, whose birthday it is today:
