Grow Your Blog ~ 2014
Hello, and welcome!
I'm grateful to each of you who have taken a moment to stop by. My name is Shari, and you are now visiting Quebec, Canada. I'm an English Quebeccer in a quickly growing town...we are no longer rural, certainly against my wishes, but we certainly cannot be classified more citified until we get us a real fabric or yarn store lol.
Blogging...I love to read the blogs of others, especially those of you who create things and post pretty pictures of them. I'm very good at collecting projects and things to try. I don't do a lot of anything very well, but I love to play and learn new things...cooking and baking, knitting, crochet, sewing (clothes and home decor), cross-stitch and other hand stitching, gardening, especially starting from seed, pets (not all at the same time)--rabbits, birds, cats, dogs, fish, invertebrates, hamsters, guinea pigs, mice, chickens. Tried my hand at homeschooling my son for two years. Loved it!
Why do I blog? I'm not really sure LOL I enjoy a space to share my thoughts out loud. I love getting feedback on my projects from likeminded individuals. I love the opportunity to learn from others and to connect with those who share my creative passions. I love to be inspired. Being part of the blogging community just seems to make the world so much smaller, and yet it expands my own world vastly to know that I can be sitting in my living room and chatting with those on the other side of the world as though they were sitting right beside me. Blogging is a means of personal growth...so thank you to each of you who are a part of that!
Started learning about quilting this year. Something I thought I'd always want to try my hand at, just never got there. I've always wanted to make a traditional type postage stamp quilt, found the PSQ swap with The Curious Quilter last year, and signed up as a newbie. Wow! Now I just have to start sewing the pieces I received together, and making cuts for upcoming swap in March so I can pay forward the love I received.
This also led me to find Mdm Samm at Sew We Quilt. I have participated in and thoroughly enjoyed her hosted blog hops. I've met many kind and generous quilters through these hops and made some new friends.
The name of my blog is Living with Purpose...so named to remind myself that everything I do is for a purpose, and that purpose is to glorify God in all I do. Thanks for stopping by! I so look forward to meeting more people.
A big thank you to Vicki at 2 Bags Full for hosting this great event and all the work required to make it happen!
