|Springtime on The Hill - Redbud|
Though we both say we're from Music City (Nashville), there's a whole county separating me from Teresa in Music City. I've long admired Teresa's lovely blog, A Quilt and a Prayer, so I asked if she'd meet me halfway to share some blogging pointers with me.
Tuesday was the appointed day; we decided to meet at Micky Ds in my old neighborhood where we knew there would be WiFi. I couldn't remember what time we had set, and Teresa had her days mixed up. But we finally made connection and am I glad!
Teresa was able to affirm that I am doing many things right. And the serious questions I had she was able to either show me or point me to other blogs with tutorials.
One that I think will be particularly helpful is Sew at Home Mummy who is doing a weekly series, "Beautify Your Blog". She is doing screen-capture videos, starting with how to back up your blog and inserting a button in your post or on the sidebar. I plan to watch the videos on my laptop while performing the exercises on the tablet.
So you may see some changes here in future weeks. The first thing you may notice (if you've been a frequent visitor) is the "Follow Me" button on the right sidebar. When I dropped out of Google+ (the reason I was showing up as a "no reply" blogger, BTW), I lost that list of friends. I'm not sure that they were getting notified of new blog posts like "followers" will. So please take the time to click the button and become a follower.
|Dust to Dawn|
Also Coming Soon
So many of you commented on my original design "Dusk to Dawn" that I am planning a tutorial/quilt along beginning sometime in May. I have to learn how to make pages and set up a linky party first!! All things that Sew at Home Mummy and others have covered. So start thinking about what fabric you want to use. It takes just two contrasting fabrics. But you can also use many different fabrics in two different colors. Fat quarters work especially well. Ah, something to shop for at Paducah ..... just sayin'.
And Another Thing
Look at my rhododendron bud -- just about to pop open.
What is this? The leaves are quite large and the back of the leaves is a deep crimson. It gets a scraggly yellow bloom on a tall stalk later in the summer.
