I have been looking at my blog stats and it has reached a milestone.
It is hard to see the numbers in this screen shot…..it gets bigger if you click on it…but in summary my first year of blogging was 2011 , I got a total of 16,705 views and average day was 58 views. this year so far 426,553 views and an average of 1,337 per day.
All that adds up to this
1,001,571 views to date.
I am just amazed that my blog has had over one million views. Thank you all for following!!
I think a lot of the credit goes to a very special quilt inspector.
Here he is this morning with the quilt I am working on.
I started the quilt back in march and It is really hard going to get it done! I foolishly used bad backing fabric. I buy a lot of vintage quilt tops on eBay and one of the came with a backing fabric. It is a very tightly woven cotton poly blend. Not the right fabric for quilts but I saved it. I knew it was a bad Idea when I started and I did it anyway because I wanted to start and I had the fabric on hand. The backing fabric is so hard to quilt! I can normally quilt for hours and hours without any problem, but this one is so hard on my hands….they get so tired because the fabric is so much like quilting through cement.
While working on the quilt I find that I need to take breaks. I have been making snowflakes in between quilting. Part of what I see from the site stats is that my snowflake posts are among the most popular and since it is getting to be that time of year I am making more….with the aim of making patterns from them. (how to make a snowflake post here)
Here are a few I made this weekend (click pictures to enlarge)
my hands are rested now so back to that quilt
