Initially, my sewing consisted mostly of using quilting fabric to make baby stuff like nursing covers, mei tai baby carriers, and baby clothing. Check out my Flickr 2008 photos of my creations here.

- I sew less for my children now that they are less 'baby' and more 'kids.'
- The clothing I've made fore myself, both using a pattern and not, have been more or less disappointing in the end and they end up in the back of my closet. (Let's face it, shedding a few pounds would alleviate that problem!)
- I have a 6+ year old fabric stash that I've been more apt to pull from and whittle down than to add to, and a quilt is, well, the best use for quilting fabric, ain't it?

Quilter Blogs is a site where you can read other quilt blogs' posts all on one feed. Like Google Reader and other readers, it's updated as blogs on the quilter blogs list post them. Pretty nifty!
Quilting Bloggers is another site that helps you promote your blog on a list, as well as links you to quilting resources for quilting shops, organized swaps, and classes.
I'm also trying to get more involved in Sew Mama Sew scene. I've participated in their giveaways before, but that's about it. Their site has helped put me in touch with other sewists and provided many a tutorial when I was in a crunch.
Also, if anyone is on Instagram, please come follow me @nanceykl (my personal feed) or @nanshoo (my wannabe professional photographer feed). Check out my link in my sidebar. Aloha `oe for now.
