WELCOME TO MY VERY OWN BLOG.  YEAAAAAAA ME!!!  I DID IT MYSELF!!   Well, I did have some help from the WordPress articles that Carol Logan Newbill is writing.

Thank you, Carol. But don’t give her credit for the mistakes – each is my very own.

Why a blog now?

Here’s the 1st best reason. I’ve been honored with an invitation from Dawn Goldsmith to be a GUEST BLOGGER on Subversive Stitchers to talk about my Valentine post cards. Dawn graciously mentioned that I could link back to my own website, blog, facebook or whatever. Uhhhh, I didn’t happen to have a website, blog, facebook or even a whatever. I am a proud member of the original Art2Mail website, but I thought that maybe now is the time for a blog. We’ll see what happens.

The 2nd best reason is that I love the sun print that’s in the header and had to use it! The grid I used as a resist is one of those flats you get at gardening centers (or wherever) to carry your plants . I kid you not – even has those neat little starburst thingy’s and the solid circles. One more thing to consider about where we buy our plants. If they don’t have interesting flat designs . . . .Well, . . .

I had some room at the bottom of the fabric and decided to do a 4×6 post card for my granddaughter’s initials.  I used those fat ‘jello’  alphabet letters and love the shadow it made.  Of course the sun cooperated by being in the right place in the sky.  Thank you, sun.

Since I had some extra room I tried a scrap of paper filler used for packaging.  You can see the edge of the plant tray at the bottom.  I think it looks like a guard rail – maybe on a bridge???

Same scan only in this position the edge of the tray makes a neat vertical  lattice.

SUN PRINTS

I  learned how to sun print  from Ellen Guerrant in a class she taught in May  of 2007 at Cedar Lakes, in West Virginia.  Great class, great instructor, and great students equal a fantastic experience.  She is knowledgeable, has a great sense of humor and a very relaxing manner. The kind of instructor that makes you just want to go out and DO.  And I did.

As soon as I got home I had to teach someone else.

My 4 yr old granddaughter’s first wall hanging.  Grandma did the quilting and borders.

Those circles pretty much say what I feel right now after the battle I’ve waged to get one page of blog written.   I have no idea where the links to Carol Logan Newbill & Ellen Geurrant disappeared to.   The last time I tried to find them I managed to delete this whole thing – not again, not tonight.    And I don’t know how to fix the side bar.  Maybe tomorrow?  Maybe not.  Eventually.   It is now February 5th.  Enough said?

    Does that mean I can be the president of your NE PA fan club? Please say yes! (Then SueReno can head up your Lancaster chapter.)

    FWIW you might have had to wrestle with WordPress, but your blog looks great. Keep on keepin’ on! Soon Elena will be old enough to take over the blogging for you….

    Sending hugs!

      You silly thing. Does that mean I can visit and chat and you & Sue will pick up my travel expenses??

      UMMMMM, what does FWIW mean? I’m begining to wonder if I should have approved your comment.
