Despite having a blog for a number of years and despite sharing lots of photos and quilt talk and Henry talk here frequently....I have a secret. I'm actually very, very shy. I manage to post because I picture one, single, super-supportive friend and I write my post to her. Really, she was the only reader and commenter that I had for so long that it became a habit. I could try to think of more of my lovely readers and commenters (I appreciate each and every one of you--really.) but then I get all tongue-twisted and awkward and silly.
So, now that I've spilled that secret, I think you can see how self-promotion is not a strength of mine. But, here I am, in a new state and a new city and I'm trying to make some new habits and some new friends. Today I'm not going to shrink back into my shell and I'm not going to write to just one person. I'm writing to all that visit my little sewing and family bubble here and I'm going to be brave and say, "Here I am!"
Here I am on flickr.
Here I am on pinterest.
Here I am on bloglovin'.
And now, here I am on instagram.
(I'm also going to totally fess up and say that I'm not sure the links to bloglovin' or instagram work correctly. I'm new to this and I'll take feedback and suggestions.)
I'll close with my first few attempts at instagram. Both Ben and I were back to feeling quite sick on Sunday. But the weather was so gorgeous and we didn't want to miss spring in DC. So we sucked it up and drove into the city in the afternoon to catch some of the spring air.
I can't believe I live this close to the White House!
After hours and hours (and hours) of handstitching while watching episodes of the West Wing, I was quite pleased to identify the OEOB building by myself.
Henry was not the biggest fan of having his picture taken in DC. He's a shy one, too :)
Thanks to all of you for letting me share my secret. I'm trying to get a little bit better.
