It’s been kind of exciting in my little online world lately. You may have noticed a new button in my side car, Advice and Help for New Quilt Bloggers. This is a great opportunity for me take part in a group of quilting bloggers who want to learn tips and tricks for managing a quilting blog and building an audience. The group became really active in the last couple weeks. Already I’ve added set up a bloglovin account and added a link here so you can follow me on bloglovin if you have your own account. I’ve also participated in a blog critique group where we provided constructive feedback on each other’s blogs. I received some great suggestions from the group I worked with and will be making some changes here. I am blown away by the talent and creativity of all the participants in this online workshop. Some of the bloggers participating have blogs I was already following for inspiration and I’ve used a couple of their tutorials. Oh!!!! I’m feeling so inspired.
Just so you know, sewing has been going on. I’m involved in 4 swaps on Instagram, plus the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along. There’s a button for the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along in my sidebar, feel free to select that to check out the details of the sew along that Lori Holt is hosting. You can check out my progress by selecting my Instagram feed in the sidebar as well. It’s been so much fun to connect with all the quilters on Instagram and I love all the positive feedback the quilting community provides over there. I will be sure to share photos for all my swaps here in the future.
I also wanted to leave you with a little bit of pretty. My best friend lives in Boulder which is about a 45 minute drive from where I live. So last weekend we met up at the Boulder Farmer’s Market to take in the sights and the people watching and to have a little brunch. Boulder is in a beautiful spot along the Front Range. The views are stunning. We had brunch on the patio at a wonderful little French Bistro, Colterra who has a farm to table concept for their menu. I had a wonderful glass of Pinot Grigio to complement the amazing squash blossom omelette. As good as the food was, it’s the views that always stay with me after visiting Boulder.
