I is for Internet.
Now how difficult was that especially considering I spent most of today INDOORS using it?
I think I was waiting for INSPIRATION.
Yes the internet is a wonderful place.
Today I have been using the internet to try and understand German grammar.
In preparation for my class tonight.
Over the weekend I used the internet to learn about art journalling.
It is also keeping me in touch with Mike while he is in the UK.
It makes it easier for me to add to his shopping list!
I think I first started blogging when I was in Sweden with none of my patchwork and quilting books and magazines.
I needed some inspiration to get started with some project or other,
rather than finishing off something I had started!
I must have googled 'patchwork and quilting'and that was my introduction into the world of blogging.
I suspect I didn't even get my project started.
Last week I received my first ATC from Joyce who doesn't appear to have a blog.
Throughout the year I have been making ATC's to send out to people taking part in a swap.
Everyone in the swap sends out an ATC to anyone whose birthday falls in the month that we are in.
All mine are sent out now, phew!
But I received my first one!
It's my birthday next month.
So Joyce is early, unlike me!
I also received a lovely little bag in September from Christine who like me is part of a bigger blog.
The Great Hexagon Quilt Along invited members to make hexagons and then all participants were put into a draw and one lucky winner won all the hexagons to sew them up however they chose.
Christine was the first winner of this 'Pot Luck' and entered the names of everyone who sent her some hexagons into a draw. And I was one of the winners.
My first blog win!
And even better, it was the first post to arrive for me at our house in Germany!!
Yes I love the internet.
I love the way that it connects people together
and keeps people in touch.
The first photo?
The weather today.
