What can I tell you about myself? I’m a very new quilter (about 8 months) and even newer blogger (6 months). But if you hang out here for very long, you’ll see I jump into everything I do with great enthusiasm. :) In honor of this blog hop I worked on another “first” for me, which was writing a pattern, for this patchwork/appliqué pillow. I posted about this earlier this week and you can read about it here.
The name “There’s A Thread” is intentionally vague, since when I started this blog I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about! I do a lot of crafty things in addition to quilting, including knitting, weaving, spinning, and dyeing (although the quilting has pretty much taken over lately). So “There’s a Thread” alludes to the relatedness of all these things. It’s also the start of a favorite poem that you can read on my About page.
I work as a professor, and I love to teach. If I didn’t have sufficient outlets for that desire, I’d probably drive the people around me crazy. So you will find a lot of tutorials on this site. So far they cover quilting, dyeing yarn and fabric, and a bit about fabric design (another new interest of mine). I also just wrote a post about choosing fabric that’s a little bit like a tutorial.
Here are some photos and links to past posts you might want to check out.
