Backing and a Gift
Blue Boy Rail Fence.
Charlotte asked me a while ago why I blog. It's a long story, but mostly I do it to share what I do. Quilters are all over the world, and blogging helps me find other quilters like me, and gives me ideas and inspiration. I always knew I was an oddball, that I look at the world differently, that my work, and my quilts were different from anybody else's. Blogging gave me an opportunity to explain how I got here, to show how my worldview affects my work. How I get from point A to point B. Because most people look at my work and can't figure out how or why I did it.
It's like talking to yourself in the dark. You never know if anybody else is out there, or really listening, or if anybody even cares. Or would notice if I stopped.
But there are folks out there listening. Caring. Reading. Thinking. Experimenting. I've made my best friends through blogland, and I am not joking. Blogging has changed, and in many ways, saved my life.
Go read Valerie Levy's post today. It's here: http://purplebootsandpigtails.blogspot.com/2015/08/its-jungle-out-there.html
That pretty much sums up why I do what I do, and why I have tears in my eyes right now.
