In which I am a small blog

It's Fresh Sewing and Small Blog Meet-Up day over at Lily's Quilts again, and this time I can jump on the link train! I may post something for Fresh Sewing Day when I get back from work, but for now here's my Small Blog intro:

Hi, I'm Natalie. I've always loved crafty stuff--I was a graphic design major, but my strengths have always been in working with my hands, not creating things on a computer, so I wish I'd done more crafty things like painting and pottery in college. No matter, I'm making it up now by learning to quilt and sew! I currently live in Seattle with my husband, two cats, and an active little girl kicking around wildly in my uterus. This blogging/quilting/mom thing is completely new to me--I can build a computer from scratch in two hours, but it took me thirty minutes to figure out how to assemble a 6-piece baby bouncer, and then I managed to assemble part of it upside down--so I hope you find some amusement as I blog about figuring all this stuff out.


  1. Hello, I've come here from Lily's and I look forward to following your blog.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog Natalie. :) Don't try hexies yet, if you want to finish other things.. you'll be hooked. I found myself making one today when I got home after something particularly stressful. lol Thanks for following my blog, I'm going to follow you too. Can't wait to see more of your projects, including your most important one ever.. in November! Congrats on the baby to come!
