Small Blog Meet [September 2011]

I have recently become part of the Lily's Quilts fan club.  Lynne of Lily's Quilts is simply amazing don't you agree?  Love her!  Anyway, this is my first edition of Fresh Sewing Day and my second month joining the Small Blog Meet.  This post is specifically directed at the Small Blog Meet (another post to follow about the Fresh Sewing Day).  If you'd like to find out more details about the Small Blog Meet please visit Lily's Quilts Post here.

About Me

I wrote a pretty formal introduction to who I am last time, so instead I am going to change it up a bit.  I am a Self-Employed Attorney (bleh) and SAHM (which I've always wanted to do anyway!) who recently made a vow to herself to return to her creative voice.  I took a formal *break* from art when I went to law school but looking back I was always creating something no matter what I was doing.  I just didn't categorize it as making art.  When I became pregnant with my first daughter I returned to quilting with the wisdom to follow my heart and not the rules I was taught in another life.

I started making rebecca lynne to fulfill my vow to return to my creative self.  I needed a place to document my projects, vent out the latest fabric lust makes my heart skip a beat, and find the love & support from a creative community.  Not that Mr. Making Rebecca Lynne doesn't try...but his feedback isn't always very deep.  Ha!

I only have 23 Followers so far, and to be honest more than a handful of that 23 are loyal friends & family members with no love of sewing at all!  Nonetheless, it is almost my 2 Month Blogoversary and while I don't have over 50 Followers (yet?) I feel that the few people who have found me are amazing and I have already created such wonderful relationships with them.  I hope it will be the same with you!

Thank you for visiting making rebecca lynne!  I'd love to visit your blog and learn more about you... Please leave me a comment below and I'll be sure to stop by and leave a note.  Oh!  And if anyone knows about any new Bees or Swaps or anything else that may be forming please let me know!!

Hey there, I meant to comment on your Big Mistake Post a couple of days ago cause I absolutely love that old style nature chart fabric (don't know how to call it - I am German ;-) Then I got side tracked and here is my 2nd chance! Woohoo! I like the other things you are making, too. Hope to hear from you.

As a mum of two - who rarely stays at home ;) - quilting gives me such satisfaction, sense of achievement and is a great creative outlet!
