The Design Studio Blog

Archive for the ‘What We Love’ Category

I remember, a few years ago, a friend of mine commented on all the quilting blogs she was reading and I just couldn’t believe how many she was following.  I had replied that I simply did not have the time with the three babies in the house.  But in the next few days I made an effort to start reading one a day. Now that there is no need for diapers, strollers and bibs in my household, I dedicate 20 minutes every morning to blog reading.  And I also spend time writing some of my own blogs too.

I was on holidays last week and that gave me even more time to read up on some of my favorite blogs and I was surprised to see many writing on very delicate subjects.  Now I am not the type to write comments after reading the blog but the ones I read on holidays are still with me. So I want to take the time on this Thankful Thursday to say thank you!  Cause that’s what blogging is all about!

Who said How to’s day  blog posts had to be about quilting and sewing?  This is a special How To’s as I will show you how to plan a weekend getaway to Vermont with your Best Quilting Friends! I know this post is late for this year, that’s because I was living the moment over the weekend! I hope this post will inspire many of you to plan this trip in 2017.

I feel very fortunate to have many Best Quilting Friends and a bunch of us got away from it all and headed to our favorite place to be on the last week end of June: Vermont.
