It's a Start


Hi fellow sewers. I'm a newbie to not only patchwork and associated crafts but to the wonderful world of blogging. A lovely lady (one of your talented bloggers) introduced me to this new world around six months ago. It has led me to an array of beautiful eye candy made by yourselves!

It has taken me a while to get into the swing of making items but I have made a start. Hopefully with your help, I will continue to learn and improve. Either way I'm enjoying it!

Here's a photo (not the greatest quality) of a mini quilt I have made. The pattern is from an old edition of Aust Patchwork and Quilting magazine. Still learning how to put photos into the blog, suggestions welcome.
Till next time - Sharyn :)

I think you are doing extremely well. I was scared half to death of adding anything when I first started. Love blogging now! My tip is to always compress your pic's... saves space and time to upload.. and have "followers" near the top... makes uploading your page quicker. Hope this helps. More importantly... EnJoY yourself! :)

Thanks Cheryll. I have moved the followers but I'll have to investigate the photo compression. Sounds painful. Haha. Sharyn:)

So great to have you with us finally. Big Welcome\O/ You are on the right track if Cheryll is helping you. Just enjoy it all. You will love it once you get a bit of confidence and that just takes time. Everyone is nervous doing anything when you start. I am still a techno hopeless.
Hugs Michelle xx

Hi Sharyn, Welcome to Blog Land :) Looking forward to seeing what you get up to. Compressing files is easy. Not knowing what program you use but try right clicking on them, then edit. Then there might be a % space. I take mine from 100% down to 25% Hope this helps. Hugs

Hi Sharyn, I clearly remember my first posts and being introduced by a very kind blogger just like Michelle has done for you. Everyone is so nice and there is so much to see and learn. Welcome. The Internet is a great source of answers to questions. You will soon be blogging up a storm and sewing more and more as you get inspiration.
Cheer,
Val
