Between work and home life, my blog gets sorely neglected. Even finding time to read some of my favorite blogs can be challenging - and don't even get me started on commenting! So, essentially, it means that I'm a blog lurker. Yup - I'm that person who reads blogs, but essentially leaves no footprint behind. I always have the best of intentions to comment or to link to blogs or in the most recent case make myself known that I'm participating in a blog hop.
But, alas, June has come and gone and I'm only now commenting on the fact that I'm loving the "Kate Spain Blog Hop" hosted by Blossom Heart Quilts.
I adore Kate Spain's fabric and I think I may make it a bit too well known in our household, because she's one of like two designers that my husband can identify! So, when I came across that there was a blog hop, I followed along. And when I realized that there was a call for us to work on a Kate Spain related project during the month of June - I knew I wanted to participate.
However, that brought me right back to my "lurking" tendencies. I had a Kate Spain project that's been sitting on the shelf for longer than I'd like to admit. I really wanted to do it, but could I get it done in a month? And if so, could I also blog about it? The answers to those questions were yes and no. I started the project at the beginning of June and completed it last night. Mr. Gnomemade took a photo of it this morning, and I'll have it posted tomorrow for the June 28th deadline! [Insert sigh of relief here.] But, it was more time consuming than I ever imagined (in fact, I can barely believe I finished it in a month - and if what I post on my blog is any indication, I really don't work that fast in general). So, it meant that I never even posted any progress shots of it! But, thanks to the Blog Hop it gave me that incentive that I really needed!
So, thank you Blossom Heart Quilts for the motivation and incentive!
