I've been PINNED :)

I have to admit I don't know too much about Pinterest but I've heard lots of talk about it. Seems it's a place you can spend HOURS looking at pictures and getting inspiration. Since Al and I don't have internet at home (Yes, shocking, I know!), I can't spend hours upon hours looking through the web... sure would like to though. But today I was reading my dashboard and looking through blogger stats and noticed that I had a lot of visitiors checking out my cupcake potholders and the center of my civil war quilt. The traffic was coming from PINTEREST. Thank you to whoever pinned me up... it's a nice compliment! Maybe I'll have to have join... or get asked? Is that how it goes?

Well, back to breakfast. Al and I are at the Original Pancake House...THE BEST BREAKFAST around! They have wi-fi, great pancakes with REAL maple syrup, REAL butter, REAL cream for the coffee and a great water view... can't ask for more than that can you? After this, it's home and back to sewing. The small stars for my star sampler are done and stitched onto the center... now I need to add the plain inner border then start making the 12" sampler stars. I'll take a picture of it when I get a little further on.

Pinterest is a lot of fun. Very visual with lots of pictures. There's a lot of quilt pictures, home decorating, crafts, weddings, animals, nature, etc. Pinning is a way to "save" a picture and it's location for later reference, and is good to keep track of tutorials. I understand it is also good when planning a wedding or other occasion. You do need an invite. Send me an email if you'd like an invite.

I am new to Pinterest myself. I repinned the pin of your civil war block. Then I scooted over here to see if you told how you made the center top cream piece. I could see it was a dresden on the plate but I wasnt sure how you did the top center piece in cream?

Pinterest has tons of quilting photos, how to, free patterns. Decorating with quilts photos. Free motion quilting tutorials. Well you see why it can eat up time. There is just about anything you can think of on there besides quilting as well LOL.
