Chapter 1 of my very own blog…

25 Mar

This is my beginning statement to the great big world of the Blogosphere. To you I wish to say a very simple “hello!”.

Creating a blog is a wonderful experience. I will tell you more about my journey to get here in days to come, right now I’m just trying to figure out what all these little buttons do beside my cursor. I know one of them publishes my text and broadcasts it into the entire free world, and another supposedly sends tweets – any bird watchers out there? If I click the big red one I’m sure my computer will suddenly burst into flames and I will lose everything, but the inviting green one promises to make the sun come out and a bluejay to land on my shoulder.

Anyways, thanks for your patience in getting started. I am very excited to share with you all the stories that occupy a normal week here at Northcott and in my spare time as a quilter. More posts are sure to come, and my design team might be changing the look of our site until their creative minds are satisfied.

Looking forward to chatting soon!

Sincerely yours,

    good start!
    It would be great to hear in the end how many quilts are delivered. Take photos … CQA/ACC Canadian Quilter would probably be interested in having you write an article.

      Hello Patti!
      I have finally made it! Love the layout and wondered how your elves would feel about making me one! 😉
      you made me chuckle (I SO relate to your feelings about buttons and flames!) and provided me with inspiration to think about making a blog of my own someday. Thank you.

      I also want to thank you for taking the time to contact me and for supporting our efforts to deliver love, comfort and hope to the victims in Japan, To have you partnered with us is sure to assist us in bringing a great measure of warmth and comfort to these people. On behalf of your quilting friends at “Quilts for Japan” we thank you and everyone at Northcott for your support.

    Great to see you in blogland. Already set it up on my blog to follow you.

    I write about my quilting on Tuesday, except for today’s post which is rather special. I am hoping that you will want to contribute to this quilt, but will need to send you a private email.

    Am looking forward to your future posts.

    Quilts For Japan…
    Creemore House of Stitches has decided to be a drop off location for Quilts For Japan. All quilts collected from the Creemore and surrounding areas, ie Collingwood, Stayner, Wasaga Beach, Avening and surrounding towns will be delivered to Northcott before the 28th of April. We have local press coverage and are hoping to fill the back of our pick up truck.-Cheryl
