Valentines Day / one year bloging

Happy Valentines' Day to you one and all.
Well it's been a full year today that I have been trying this thing called blogging.
I have learned alot about the computer and how things work and learned a lot from other blogers/quilters out there as well. I had thought that I was not going to be able to figure this out and then my daughter showed me the blog she does for her class to keep the kids and parents informed. She walked me through getting started and has helpped when I have had a question or two and I have a few blogging friends that have helpped figure other things out as well. And that does not even touch all the other things i have learned from quilting to being guleten free.
I hope to try and keep it up for another year , and longer .

I do a a little to show for this weeks W.I.P.
I have started on a small wall hanging  using spool blocks. My friend Sheila is making one and I had told her I would try to do the same.
Here is what I was able to get started with

the far pic shows the block with 4 spools that I will set with these two larger ones. they will be the center of my wall hanging. I will also add my blog name to the wall hanging to hang in the quilting area.
Still quilting on my challenge quilt , about 1/2 done now.

Sew that 's all for now be sure to check out The Needle and Thread Network link on my side bar .
And if you are sew inclind check out my ppost from a couple days ago with my anniversary give away ( closes midnight on the 15)
