Sharing a connection

Lynne from Lily’s Quilts wrote a post on advice for new bloggers the other day.  While I’m not a new blogger, I’m always eager to learn from other bloggers – especially ones whose blogs I enjoy as much as Lynne’s.  Advice point #11 was “…Blog for fun.  Blog because you enjoy it.  Don’t feel guilty about not blogging for six weeks because life got in the way.  “

I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to make that goal!  I definitely blog because I enjoy it and it is fun.  But I hate it when I haven’t blogged in a long time.  Guilt isn’t the right word for what I feel when I’m not blogging.  It’s more like frustration and distance.  Frustration usually because I’m working really hard on things that I think are cool, but that I can’t share with you!  Distance because I love sharing what I’m doing – I love getting feedback and comments from you all out there and I feel disconnected when I can’t do that.

I guess this is a long way of saying I miss you all.  And while I am working hard on the cool things I can’t show you, I’m going to try a little harder to fit in a few I can share.

So today I just have a few photos to share.  Some of you may have seen them on Facebook or Twitter.  I took these last week when I was in Chicago picking my daughter up from school.  There are four in the series (I missed the yellow ones) and I guess their point is that these apartment buildings have remodeled kitchens and bathrooms.  I love how they are “bordered” with quilt blocks!  Inspiration really is everywhere 🙂

    I think it's insane that I can see quilt blocks in practically EVERYTHING! Glad to know I'm not alone – can't wait to see your secret projects 😉
