Missed it....

I was going to post about my first year as a blogger, but I missed the date; thought it was April 29th, but I now see it was April 19th . Last year I had intended to just post one or two images with a pithy, short comment, but some how that did not happen.
Dear readers, do you prefer a short and sweet blog? Any advice gratefully received.

Inspired by Kathy at Kitteridge Mercantile, I photographed my 'to be seen to' stash, this is about one half. 'To be seen to' is not my cutter stash, or my very good quilt stash or even my medium quilt stash, just ones I have not had a proper look at. Will I mend it? sell it as a cutter? put aside for garage sale? Does it just need a wash? and is to go to the laundry room.

I took the top quilt and threw it over the line (often this is the best way for me to see the entire piece) It is minus the binding. Shall I rebind or sell as is? Still have not made up my mind.


  1. Long or short your blogs are always interesting. I loved it when you showed your scarf collection and they were definately long blogs... always enjoy seeing other bloggers linens & laces and scarves and wraps and........ everything!
    Happy 1st birthday.

  2. Love reading your posts!

    And with this top? I say sell as is! It is beautiful

  3. Congratulations on a year of blogging. Whatever you feel like posting - long or short, as the mood takes you - I'll enjoy reading it.

  4. Oh, decisions, decisions! :)

  5. I can't comment as I don't know the answer, however I love the yellow colour!

  7. Whatever you feel like on the day of blogging...that's my motto anyhow. I enjoy reading your blog however short or long the post. It's good to have friends around the worls thanks to blogging

  8. My opinion, being a longwinded blogger myself, is show-me-what-you've-got! I am here to see your possessions, crafts and passions and read your opinions and find out what inspires you, makes you laugh or think...

    So, I reckon when it's your blog, you get to do whatever you like... long or short.

    See. I can't even do a short comment!!!
