A Blog By Any Other name.......

I think it's time to change the name of my blog.  I started blogging as some accountability in my efforts to lose weight.  But then came quilting, and other quilting bloggers and that has now become the main focus of my posts.  I also feel like I've developed a community of other quilting bloggers and it seems like it's time to make my blog name reflect this.

So, now, welcome to Quilts, Life and Balance.  I just couldn't let the balance thing go.  Everything in life seems to demand balance.  In dieting, balance is everything.  Most foods can be OK if eaten in a small portion and any food can be bad if you eat too much of it.  And the same is true of time spent sewing, or on the computer or cleaning my house.  And since not all my posts are sewing related I opted for the name you see today.  I've kept the URL the same so that links to my blog will still work.

And, to go along with the new name I decided on a new picture:
Yup, that's me at about seven years old.  I can tell that by the gap in the front of my mouth.  I loved that Mickey Mouse dress with the Peter Pan collar.  Get a look at the vintage print on those curtains!  That was taken in our kitchen.  My mother made those curtains and after they were curtains they were a table cloth.  We were strong proponents of "Use it up. Wear it out. Make it do. Do without." 

So, if my blogging skill is adequate, once I hit the right buttons my changes will be seen.  If your reading this and the name and picture haven't changed...well....I'm working on it.
