1st blog Anniversary!

It seems impossible to me, but today this blog turns one year! Impossible that I have been able to write more or less consistently, impossible regarding how many things, and people, I have got to know and into how many projects I have jumped in in just one year. Because it’s fair to say that blogging helps me (a lot) to keep a consistent working pace, motivates me to engage in new projects, and, above all, blogging is enabling me to be in touch with an amazing community of quilters.


But also today my Stars-quilt project turns one year. Surely time flies by! I know, and knew back then, that this project is a long-term one. I’m pretty happy, taking into account the amount of projects I’m working on, that I’ve been able to reach this year milestone finishing basting all the templates, and having the stars sewn together. I hope in a year I would be already quilting it!

Stars basted: 84/84 (504/504 templates)
Stars sewn: 84 /84
Background pieces basted: 504/504
Stars completed: 0 (now let’s work to modify this one!)

I have also used this anniversary to update the “About” page… one year ago I wasn’t even dreaming of learning to knit! This blog is, and will be, mostly about patchwork, but something I’ve been growingly aware of is how much I love needle-work, from patchwork to knitting, including embroidery, sewing home-décor items, and, why not, a garment from time to time. What hasn’t changed is that there’s always some mug or cup lying right next to my sewing space!
