What's Your Name?

Dawn over at Sweet as Cinnamon is having a fun little "get to know one another"! She want's to know why we picked our blog name and a little about ourselves (of course she is having a little give away too!) She has a beautiful blog and a wonderful name!

Now It's Just Quilts! really started as "quilts-n-bordercollies", because two of my passions are quilting and every thing about quilting, and border collies especially training and sheep dog trialing. After about a month of posting, I realized that not only was it difficult for me to mix the two, not everyone is interested in both. So, I split my blogs into two separate blogs - one for each topic. Hence, Now It's Just Quilts is about quilting and just border collies contains my obsession with everything border collie.

It has been quite an adventure for me - I've only been blogging about 5 months and I can say that I have "friends" all over the world!!

This is my only photo where I "mixed" the two. A vintage quilt that my husband's grandmother made, and Bess who was about 7 weeks old in the photo. She is now 5 1/2 months old, and is my "most promising prospect" I've had!! She is a joy as is the treasure of a vintage quilt!

Happy Fall Ya'll

What a fabulous history about the ladies in your family and your blog's name!
Doesn't your mother look like her great grandmother?
