Ready or Not. . . .

My very first post on my very first blog! I have been inspired by my friends Pam (http://www.pam-purplequilter.blogspot.com/) and Roberta (http://colorfulquiltingworld.blogspot.com/) to start this blog . I hope to share my quilting adventures with my friends in California and other states, and my family as well.

I love blue, that's why I named this blog Indigo Threads. Indigo is my favorite shade of blue. Now, I love other colors as well, especially purples and greens, but most especially blue! I've discovered that there's no color I dislike, just some I like better than others. Every color has it's place. I used to hate pink and orange. I've discovered that I don't hate them, I just don't like them used indiscriminately.

I am still in the process of moving into our new house - which means that not everything is unpacked yet! My sewing room (AKA "Quilt Studio") is still 95% in boxes. So, I will be documenting the process of unpacking and setting up my place to create quilts, and then sharing whatever I do in that room as well. I will be trying out the world of Art Quilts, for one thing. Just for my own amusement, really. No aspirations on becoming an Artist, just playing with fabric and color. I love fabric and I love color! What more reason would one need?
