Small Blog Meet Post

Small Blog Meet

"What is this?!" you might ask, "TWO posts in a day???"

Well, to answer your question, this morning I was doing my regular thing of reading through all of the blogs on my feed and I came across the Small Blog Meet at the Lily's Quilts blog and decided to join in since I'm always looking for new bloggy friends, so an additional post was needed.

The history of my blog is this: I decided back in March to start blogging. I've always made stuff and people always ask me about how I did it, so I thought I'd simplify things and make a blog where I could just post all of the pictures and the process in one place so that people could look at them and think "oh, how pretty is that?

Well, I ran into a few problems:
The first is that I'm NOT GOOD at taking pictures of things in-progress. I'll make something and realize that I didn't take any pictures of it while I made it.

The second problem is that I'm just not very good at taking photos. We have a big fancy camera and yet I still get blurry yellow pictures that don't show off what I make.

Third, I'm really BUSY. There's a stint in my blog where I went from one vacation to another to an out of town job to moving to another vacation, and what I ended up with was no posts at all in June and July and only two in August.

But I'm back now with a newly designed blog and a new name, and I'm getting back into the swing of things. I plan on posting about my finished hexi journal cover tomorrow, as well as my journal itself, and I hope to have some progress to show you on the chenille blanket I'm working on as a birthday gift for my uncle.

Anyways, thanks for reading, feel free to look around, and thanks for visiting my blog!


  1. Hi Stephanie,
    if Granite is your real last name you have one of the coolest last names in the world (I am almost done studying Geology ;-) I'm coming over from Lily's quilt. Everything you wrote in your profile about procrastinating and fabric shopping sounds so familiar ;-) Hope to hear from you.

  2. Hi Stephanie, I've come over from Lily's quilts. Looking forward to following your blog.

  3. I also came by from Lily's SBM. Hope you don't mind having another follower. :)
    P.S. Looking forward to your hexie post.. I just started and made my first hexie this week. Making flowers, but don't know what I will do with them yet.

  4. Hello, I've come from Lily's as well and look forward to following your blog.

  5. Coming over from Lily's Quilts as well, though I'm a bit late to the party, I think. I too am a newish blogger and I also struggle with how to best photograph and present projects. Have you ever visited the SITS site? It's a good women's blogging resource, lots of helpful tips and hints.
