My blog looks different

I have had been trying new layouts for my blog and finally decided I like this one - so will leave it for awhile. I don't want the background to overwhelm the blog - so I hope you like it. I would love comments on what I have chosen if you wouldn't mind taking the time.

I am slowly learning more and more about having a blog and it has been an interesting experience to say the least. I am going to try to work something on photo shop so that I can put in my signature - another adventure ! grin. I have only had mine for a few months and find that it is easiest to learn one thing at a time. My friend Deb has been a wonderful help in getting me started. Our learningfa group is going to have a blogger l0l class soon, where Chris Dahl helps us start our own blog. If you are interested - join learningfa and
go to the data base and sign up. There is a huge amount of interest in this class - we have
80 plus people signed up already for just this class- unbelievable.
The weather is warming up finally - but it sounds like snow will be coming over the weekend. It has been a very unusual winter, even for here.
We have a big day tomorrow . Our grand daughter is 5 years old! It is hard to believe -
the family is going out for dinner tomorrow night and later on she will have a birthday
party with her pre school friends and family friends. She is very excited. She just phoned
me to make sure we were coming tomorrow night. Such a joy! We only live l0 minutes away so we see her often. She is so bright and knows so much - she is wonderful on the
computer even now- her parents and my Husband and I spend a lot of time teaching her
works, figures and art and she is like a little sponge. Very independent and a very nice little girl.
Things are getting underway on the learningfa group -- I just sent out the lessons for
the Three fabric wall hanging, and when I receive some of the finished work I will post them here. We have had 50 new members this past month.

Thought for the day

Thanks for stopping by my blog; I'm afraid I don't post much about quilts but there's a bit of vintage needlework every Tuesday.

I love the snowflakes! What a great way to add visual interest.
