From 2006-2009 I blogged under the Betty Ninja blog. I've missed blogging, but felt a redesign was needed. This new blog Inside the Honeycomb seems to fit the bill!
- I try to buy from yard sales, thrift stores, and church rummages. It's not that I don't absolutely love the amazing array of fabric designers and fabrics out there- I do!- it's just...well cheaper for one and harder for two. If I'm forced to use part of my stash or supplement from a yard sale it forces me to consider colors and patterns that I might not have otherwise. Like I said- you will definitely see that I love designer fabrics and use them when available, it's just part of my craft I want to try to use more of what is already out there.
- I'm not perfect. Not by any means. My quilting is haphazard, I tend to just sew over a little pucker here and there, and bindings- oh lord- don't get me started on bindings.
- I'm lucky if I make one quilt a month. One quilt a month is a pretty good thing in the grand scheme of things when you think about it. I just wanted to make sure I let you all know, that, well, churning out a new quilt every week or everyday, just isn't possible for me. So I hope to fill the down time with process. I came across this idea on another quilting blog recently (can't remember which one!), that showing the what and how of creating is just as important as the final product. So you will see projects as they grow not just as finished.
- I think that is it! Thank you so much to everyone who has maintained interest in my work during these down years! I hope to fill the next year with more joy from my tiny little corner of the world!!
