Making new friends. . .

Hi from "Three Janes" [L2R]: Kathy, Elaine & Cyn:)! This is a picture of the three of us visiting The Temecula Quilt Company quilt shop in Temecula. It is always so wonderful to put faces and names together. Our visit was short as Kathy and her friend Crystal were on their way to the Road2California quilt show in Ontario. Elaine and I both drove down from the show on Saturday morning and met at the shop to take a class at the TQC. Elaine had emailed me about the Civil War Diary quilt class, so we signed up to take it together. We had a great time! I'll post more about the TQC later... what a darling shop!
This is just a little "quickie" post to get the picture up. I'll write again soon about the Rd2Calif show, post some pics, and tell some tales!
Toodles, and thanks for stopping by!

Flattening the learning curve. . .

Today I've been trying to flatten out my Blog learning curve by clicking around on the various tabs in Blogger. There is a lot of stuff here! I figured out how to add a photo to the header on the opening page, but couldn't get it sized correctly so I deleted it. I think me and my delete button are going to become very close friends! lol. I did manage to get a photo u/l in the "about me" gadget area. I chose to u/l a DearJane block as a 'placeholder' because I don't have a recent picture of myself. I'm always the one behind the lens, you see, not in front of it!
Well, this is enough blog-time for this morning as I need to go and finish putting away the Christmas decorations. The house feels a bit dowdy and bland with all the foo-foo taken down. I really get a kick out of the decorations. . . do you, too?
Bye for now. . .

. . . the beginning / intro

Hello... I am taking the plunge and creating my first Blog after much encouragement from friends--you know who you are! LOL. My plan is to post my thoughts and progress relating to quilting projects--mostly DearJane, currently. Also, from time to time I will probably write about some travels in my new-to-me RV, classes I take, digital photography and other interests, and thoughts I need to write down or share. As one friend put it, "don't wait 'till you have it all figured out; just go for it!" So, taking Elly's sage advice, I will just make this up as I go along.

Thank you for taking the time to read my Blog and I hope you will come back again when I actually have pictures posted, finish setting this up and perhaps even figure out what I'm doing!

Happy New Year, everyone!
