Everybody Blog Now

And now for something totally different!

As I've mentioned before, my mother-in-law is an amazing quilter. I don't think that I've mentioned that in the last few years she's also picked up sketching and watercolors, too. Around the time that she was making our huppah, she joined the Everyday Matters Group. The group, which grew out of this weblog, has a weekly drawing challenge. It wasn't long before Shirley started asking Jason how hard it would be to create a blog where she could post her sketches and watercolors, and participate in the weekly challenges. The result was Paper and Threads, Shirley's very own weblog!

She's taken to the format like a natural, and routinely gets a number of very positive comments on her sketches, paintings, and fabric endeavors from fellow members of the Everyday Matters Group. So go check her blog out -- even if you're not into drawing, painting, or quilting, I think fiber lovers of all stripes will join me in admiring Shirley's amazing fabric room!
