Hello Blog World!

Well here I go! At the urging of my good friends Doe and Sharon I'm starting my blog......but more importantly because my daughter is so darn smart and can figure all this stuff out I've gotten
this far. I know very little about computers, but she is teaching me and hopefully before long I'll be off on my own. Now enough about "her" (she said I had to write about myself (gg)! I have been quilting since my kids were very little and I am totally obsessed. Working at a quilt shop has only added to the obsession. Pretty much all my best friends are quilters, what a surprise! Well enough for my first post. Hopefully I did everything right.

Welcome to the blogworld, and a TOOT TOOT!!!!!!!!
I know I'm going to like you, simply because you are friends with Sharon and Doe. They are wonderful, so you must be, too!!

Kim said...

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Blog! Since you're a good friend of Sharon's . . . well, let's just say your tastes are questionable. Your friends are obviously completely nuts, but actually we LIKE that quality here! LOL! I've added you to my "favorites" and will check back. A word of warning, though: Watch out for that Darlene. Before you know it, she'll be posting multiple comments and filling up all the space! (Hey Ms. Darlene! JK! LOL!) Oh, yeah--TOOT TOOT! Now you have another subject for a blog post--when you tell us why Sharon's making us say TOOT TOOT!

Darlene said...

Oh no - I'm sorry 'she' found you. The 'she' is Kim - she's just going to be a nuisance but you'll get used to her. LOL

Cheryl said...

I don't know what I would do without Katie. She's quite the teacher!! While I was whinning and saying I couldn't do it - she reminded me how I would never let them say "I can't" when they were little - the daughter has now become the mother :)!

Cheryl said...
