Grow Your Blog

2 Bags Full

If this is your first visit...WELCOME!
If you've been here before...WELCOME BACK!

This is a great opportunity to find new blogs and be inspired!
A special thanks goes to Vicki from 2 Bags Full who is hosting this amazing party.
Be sure to check out her blog for the list of bloggers participating.

So who am I and what to I do on my blog?

Well.....

My name is Carol and I blog here at Just Let Me Quilt.


My blog name came about because I worked full-time,
took care of an elderly lady, had a busy life as a mom and grandma,
and all I wanted to do was have more time to quilt.
I'm retired now, so I finally have more time to play with my sewing machine...yay!

A few things I love:

Quilting and sewing

Blog hopping with Madame Samm at sewwequilt.com

Snuggling with my Monkey Boys (grandsons)

Playing with my two dogs

Working on my family history

Writing and answering emails

I'm so glad you stopped by!
In fact, I'm so happy you're here that I'm having a...

GIVEAWAY!
One charm pack and one yard of Moda's Surrounded by Love fabric.


The rules...
  1. Leave a two word comment...short and sweet works for me!
  2. It can be mailed anywhere...yes, even to the other side of the world.
  3. Since this about growing our blogs, becoming a Follower would be sweet.
  4. Giveaway ends at 5 p.m. PST on February 15thEntries after 5 p.m. PST on February 15th will not be included in the giveaway.
  5. THIS IS IMPORTANT: If you aren't sure whether or not you are a no reply blogger, LEAVE ME AN EMAIL ADDRESS...pretty please! You can't win if I can't contact you!

Carol I learn something new everyday. After blogging with you for so long I did not know you are retired, that is so cool. I have ten years to go. I am not rushing it but dividing my time to do the things I love is challenging. Your grandsons are adorable!

Hi Carol- You're an amazing lady! So many things to do, so little time, but you seem to squeeze them in. Being retired isn't any easier except your perspective changes. Now I get to do the things I want, but still -so many things to do, so little time! Thanks for sharing.

I loved your Tammy bag for the She Who Sews hop. I also loved that huge bag for your embroidery unit. But my question is....did you digitize the design yourself? I thought the measure tape for the calves was so creative! sewingblogsarefun@yahoo.com
