Small New Blog Meet Up

My morning ritual after saying good-bye to my husband before he heads off to work is drinking coffee and reading all of the blogs that I follow. I love it so much because it motivates and inspires me every morning.   This morning, I read Lynne's post over at Lily's Quilts and she added a new section into her Fresh Sewing Day.

Small Blog Meet

I'm a new blogger and I have fewer than 20 followers. I qualify!!!

Here is a little bit about me:

My husband and I have been married for over 15 years, I have 3 great step kids who are now adults, and 3 grandsons from our son Scott and our DIL Conny.

My husband and I moved to a new house in Atlanta over 10 years ago and all of the windows were bare.  After making the dining room valances, I was hooked and made treatments for every window in the house.   In fact, I loved sewing so much that I ended up going to drapery school in North Carolina and earning my "Window Coverings Career Professional" certificate.

My mom started quilting in 2004 and she would tell me how much fun she was having. In 2007, I enrolled in my first beginner quilt class and loved it. I wish I had taken it up earlier. I met so many nice people through quilting. I have my favorite LQS that says "Hi, Cindy" when I walk in the door.

That's it about myself.  I do hope you will "stop by" and say hello.


  1. Hi Cindy Lou!
    I just finished linking up and wanted to stop by and say hi to everyone. I am a VERY new blogger, so I hope to meet many people who love quilting. Bye for now.

  2. Hi Cindy! Love your dogs, and the truck. The fabrics your got are perfect! I look forward to hearing all about it as I continue to read your blog.

    God bless,
