So I don't know how many people even read this blog (my counter says quite a few, but I won't pretend I don't add to that number a bit myself) but I just wanted to give my mom some publicity. She's started a blog recently (Tuesdays with Dori, hyuk hyuk) that's basically all the things she *would* have been telling me all along, if she'd known I was making her a quilt for Christmas.
A quick digression here. I know I have multiple blogs about basically the same things. But the thing is, this blog is for virtual friends. That blog is for IRL friends. I don't post nearly as much stuff about charity work on there, because it feels like bragging. Here, well, it's still bragging but it somehow feels less...icky. I don't know. Maybe that's silly, but it is what it is. That's how I got the name for this blog though, from the one I made to track making the quilt (my first ever) for my mom.
Anyways. So my mom is funny. At Christmas, I wanted her to be a guest poster on my cooking blog (yeah that's right, I have a lot of blogs...hush) but she wasn't sure she wanted to learn a new interface (she didn't call it that, I don't remember what she called it...maybe "computer thing"). Mom's neither old nor stupid (far from it on both), but computers are complicated and she doesn't usually have the *need* to fuss with them like I do. So when, out of the blue, she sent me a link to a blog that she's not only writing on but set up herself, I couldn't have been more proud.
Anyways. Tuesdays with Dori. Go check it out. It's only got a few entries, but as time passes it'll be filled with 30+ years of quilting knowledge.
