Like many of the things in my life, I have many thoughts about blogs. I love reading them, seeing the creativity, reproducing tasty recipes, seeing growing and changing families, people sharing the highs and lows of their life. Blogs are time consuming. It takes time to take photographs, download them and write a post. I miss those who have stopped posting on their blogs and am delighted when someone reappears.
Blogs help me to find the creative side of myself. For example, Gail, The Middle Sister shared photographs of the home of a friend. While enjoying the home tour, Gail had a photograph of a hooked chair pad. My creative juices started flowing and I went searching through old issues of Primitive Quilt magazine until I found an eagle motif. Out came the freezer paper, out came the wool bins and soon I had drawn (traced) off my own eagle for a chair pad and selected wools.
So. . .once again, reading a blog gave me an idea. I think an American Eagle chair pad will work nicely in this chair.
