To chew the cud,
to meditate or muse,
Over the past few months I have been doing much ruminating (love that word it just rolls off the tongue!), pondering & reflecting....about my blog.
I realise my efforts in blog writing this year have been very minimal. I have not been fair to any readers I may have had, who must be incredibly frustrated with the long, drawn out absences between posts. For that I apologise. I have had to take myself back to the basic reasons for writing a quilty blog in the first place. A couple of those reasons were...to join up with a large, vibrant, online sewing group where I could both give and receive great ideas and take my quilting skills to new levels. To document my creativity, my failures and my successes. What I didn't count on were the amount of fabulous people I have met and experiences I have had through my blog (like starting up a local bloggers stitch group, now into it's third year).
When I look at my beginning reasons, I realise nothing has changed. I still want these things. Therefore, when deciding whether to close my blog or to keep it going, I have decided I need to keep it on, for now. To that end, I need to get out of the rut I am in as far as one blog post every three or four weeks. So I am making a 'new years resolution in May'!! For the next 5 weeks until the end of June, I will blog twice a week. Every Wednesday and Sunday. To get back on track. I apologise in advance for the fact that sometimes, I will have nothing to say, and perhaps will have only a photo of my dinner!!!!
I may not get to responding to comments that are left on my blog (though I will attempt it and I will read each one). There will still be lots of colour however, one of the many things I am passionate about!!
So see you on Wednesday, with a few more photo's from my improv quilt. Thank you for your patience with me. I really, really appreciate it. xo
