Deja Vu and Other Randomness

Last week's random linky was quite fun! I really enjoyed seeing all of your most-viewed flickr photos! While we're on a roll, I thought we'd do it again. But this time, how about linking up your very first blog post? {Mine's here.} It's good to take a glance back now and them, not just to see how far you've come, but also as a reminder of what prompted you to start blogging in the first place. I love the hopefulness and innocence in these posts. And if you aren't a blogger, link up your first flickr photo or any other first for that matter.

Hard to believe quarter 3 of the Finish-A-Long is almost over!! The FAL is always a great motivator for me and I'm excited to be sharing a tutorial in this round up! I'm also quilting like crazy in an effort to finish just one more w.i.p.!

Interesting new books by authors I 'know' are more than abundant lately. What's enticing you? This one popped into my cart this week (on preorder), a dictionary of sorts by two awesome quilt bloggers, Lynne Goldsworthy and Kerry Green.


And so did Delancey: A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage by Molly Wizenberg of Orangette.
Molly's first book, A Homemade Life, is one of my favorites, where she "recounts a life with the kitchen at its center". I can relate to that.


We're already in the final stretch of the Zakka 2.0 :: Patchwork, Please sew along. {snif}
I hope you'll stop by next Monday and see the project I get to present! Here's a little sneaky peek!

And fabric has shipped out for the Modern Quilt Guild's Basics Challenge with Riley Blake Designs. The Seattle Modern Quilt Guild will be participating - any one else?
Well that's about it for this week!
Linking up with Random Thursday.

Fun idea Debbie - I have definitely come a long way, and my blogging style has changed I hope - less writing, better pictures! Congrats on your 700 followers btw :)

Thanks for hosting another fun linky, Debbie! I will definitely be coming back later to read everyone's first posts. Heading over to Annabella's now!

Going back to look, I saw that my first blog post didn't even have a photo!! So my profile pic will do. :)

Like Heather, my first blog post didn't have a photo, either. Hilarious to go back and read. Thanks for a fun linky and sorry for being a delinquent Zakka Alonger. Life is getting in the way these days!

Perfect timing - I just celebrating my Year of Blogging on Monday and included my 1st post in it. It was short with no pictures so I had to link up with a pic of me! So much learned with much fun this year...

What a great idea! It feels weird to look back at my own early blog posts, but it's so fun to see how everyone started out!

Mine was short and sweet :) I'd love to do the MQG challenge but the meetings are too far away for me to attend so I'm not a member
