Grow Your Blog...Photo Heavy

I am participating in the Grow Your Blog 2015 Party organised/hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full and I hope to meet many more bloggers from around the world by visiting their blogs and, hopefully, as they come to visit my blog as well.  To participate, I need to tell you something about myself and my blog.

Welcome to my little part of the blogsphere...I started blogging in 2007 as a way to record my adventures into crazy quilting and stitching...over the years it has become a place that I share all my crafty endeavers...anything from knitting, crochet, stitching, quilting, ledgers, crazy quilting can be found here...sometimes I will post about family as well...I love to share about what I am up to on the crafty front...






I am a fourth generation quilter as well as needle worker, which I think is awesome...even though I started out young I did not really start to quilt until later in life...always just small items...in 2007 all that changed and I became more involved in quilting... I love epp as it is so portable and have several projects on the go...two scrappy and one which is not scrappy...


















Embroidery is another area that I truly enjoy and use a lot in my crazy quilts of course...over this past year I have developed a love of making lace from being in classes with Karen Ruane...you can find her here...through her classes I have also developed a love for ledgers to record and keep records of my needlework samples in... I love needle work of all types, but I am developing a true love for free form stitching and quilting...I do love epp for traditional quilts, but my love for embroidery and stitching has grown over the past year.

I do hope you will come again to visit and if you do please leave a comment to let me know that you were here...I love getting comments and then being able to answer them back to those who leave me one...I always try to comment back within a day or so of your leaving a comment...if you would like to become a follower that would be awesome as well...I always love having new followers...looking forward to meeting new friends.
Wendy

I stopped by for the We Support You Blog Hop, but had to scroll through your blog after reading the title. (I love crazy quilting...) I am afraid I have not made it this far along in the blog hop, so I am so glad to stumble upon your blog. Your work is just lovely! I will be following you on Bloglovin'!
