(Thames Barrier, picture borrowed from here)
The Blog Barrier, on the other side, had done nothing to stir my curiosity whatsoever. It has neither amazingly cool design nor John Hannah nor my favourite city close by. During my 5 years of blogging I have of course faced little Blog Bumps when getting back to blogging after holidays etc, but the Blog Barrier has been unchartered territory to me. Until now.
I have been blaming it on feeling a bit worn out and down after the moving process, the holidays, the heat, the happy weeks with the grandboys, making umpteen decisions about the house, catching up on patterns, on class samples, on the sun, the moon and the stars. All valid reasons, I’d say, but today I broke the barrier and wrote two posts about my two new classes on our guild blog. It felt soo good so see the words and pictures and fabulous colour right there up on the screen. Yeey, happy dance!
The guild, Rogaland Quiltelag, is celebrating their 25th anniversary in October, and we are hosting an anniversary weekend with 4 different classes and a dinner and lots of fun and good food. The classes are open to everyone, so if you’d like to spend a fun weekend with us at a very nice and cozy hotel in Sandnes, you should check out the guild blog where 3 of the 4 classes have been posted today, or leave me a comment, and I’ll send you the information.
Going through my pictures, I have quite a backlog of summer joys and projects to share, like my guild’s anniversary challenge in progress.
The challenge format is 50*50cm, so I’ll be stitching two and two of these small quilts together for the exhibition. I was demonstrating different ways of doing so at the guild meeting yesterday, and will take pictures of my sample for an upcoming tutorial.
But first and most importantly, it’s Thursday and grandma day, my chores are done, so off I go to pick up the boys.
If you too have experiences with the Blog Barrier, I am rather curious to hear the whys and whats and hows and your solution to crawling over/getting around it!
See you soon and thanks for stopping by!
