Blog Party/Ami Simms
The above badge is from the blog "2 Bags Full"...I really don't remember signing up for this Party, but I probably did!! It was suggested that on the evening of January 18th, those involved are to write a little something about how we got started blogging. I started blogging at the suggestion of my daughter who is a blogger. My blog is pretty eclectic....I sometimes just ramble...sometimes I have a purpose.
I am a fiber artist, so much of the time, my blog deals with my art work and the art work of those I admire. I am a member of a wonderful group of gals. We are the Creative Crones of studioQ and we have a marvelous time meeting and learning from each other. I am in the process this year of doing a Memory Monday...stories of my past which is vast...so therefore includes little snippets of history!!
With this current blog I am also going to promote Ami Simms, a very well known quilter/designer who has been very influential in sponsoring Alzheimer's Research through her quilting. She requested that those of us who blog might encourage others to look into what she does and what others can do to help the cause. She has an ongoing auction of small quilts which everyone can contribute to. Just click on the following link and learn all about it!
