My First Post (an uninspired title)

Well... we'll see how this goes.
I've been spending entirely too much time reading yahoogroups, other blogs and endless quiltart digests. So, I thought I'd start my own in hopes of being more proactive and less "zombie zone computer head." Melody Johnson, one of my favorite quilt artists, recently started a blog and it really fun to read, so I'm diving in. Now, as I get more proficient, obviously I would make that bit about Melody a link to her own blog. Ah, one thing at a time. And I'll be posting pictures too. (?)
I am so disappointed that the Art Quilts Maine meeting was cancelled today. Hellooooo... the weather isn't that bad. And I had a sitter all lined up and I was ready to completely blow the entire monthly babysitting budget on it. And I had my show and tell ready, handmade Christmas ornament ready for exchange, delicious Chicken Artichoke Tarts ready for the pot luck lunch. Bummer. (Again, this would be a good place for a picture of the show and tell item, the ornament and a link to the recipe. Check back for that later.)
But, Lisa and Ali came over to play instead and that was super fun. She brought me a Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks! It was as if a choir of angels walked in the door with her when I saw it. Delicious! And in such a pretty red cup with snowflakes. And guess what we had for lunch? Chicken Artichoke Tarts.
Ok, I'm off to explore a little more about blogging. Take some pictures to post later and maybe work on the winter quilt.
