Scary First Post!

I was going to start with "is anybody out there" but I already have a wonderful lady Natima from Notjustnat following and helping already. How lucky am I to have a blogging friend like that from the beginning. I have lots of photos of Christmas,
travels and quilts and would like to do my header and post items properly but felt I could not leave this blank for much longer. I am very new to this but love to read everyone's blogs so I thought Bloggers could bear with me whilst I learn. I am just back from Bali and Singapore where I was lucky enough to purchase BLOGGING FOR BLISS to help me a bit. I also think I better puchase Blogging for Dummies whilst I am at it. Like all Quilters I have far too many U.F.O.'s and am lucky to be starting
classes with legends Marg Sampson and Brigitte Giblin this year at Material Obsession so I guess I will have more. I should explain my chosen Blog name too I love and collect Dragonflies (amongst many other things) and we travel a lot hence the Gypsy part. Over the coming weeks I plan to learn how to load photos on and show Finished and WIP quilts, some of my collections and trips which almost always has me outside (and definitely inside) a quilt shop. I hope I don't bore everyone.

  2. Welcome Sharon, You will enjoy this Land of Blog as I do. The other bloggers are such nice and helpful people. A question--- just ask and some one or two will have an answer. Bummed out just tell us, we have big hearts and big shoulders. Its not just quilting, its becoming friends also and doing what friends do. I don't blog every day as some do, but I do try at least once a week. Enjoy and Happy Quilting!
