Today WAS cool. Blessedly cool. I damp stretched a small house quilt, continued quilting one of the Middle Passage quilts (shown above and below), started a patch on a silk jacket, ran to SuperSavers, cleaned up the kitchen, wondered (again) why I blog, and did some reading.
Today, I offer you this — fiber in action – here
and pose the question: Why do YOU blog?
[This started as a comment to others’ comments, but I’m putting my thoughts here instead]:
I love the connections here (in cyberspace), too… I find fiber artists’ blogs to be witty, generous, and inspiring, on many levels – not just creatively… and I would miss them terribly if I somehow found myself in a hut at 9,000 feet above sea level with no internet access. In fact, blogging and connecting online were the things I missed the very most that year-plus-a-little that I worked 9 to 5.
I, do, however, need to learn to manage some reactions I seem to repeatedly have… and to continue to work toward finding what, exactly, my style here wants to be… not unlike with quilting itself.
