Back to the pies

Last week I finally got back to the pies and tarts. I did get so sick of them earlier this year. So much so that at one point they went flying across the room. I figured that I needed a little break at that point. I have picked them up a few times since then, but they didn't go anywhere. Last week was different. I managed to finish a couple of pies so I figured I am good to go now. Hopefully they won't go flying across the room anytime soon!

I am working my way to my 500th post at the moment. Amazing, isn't it? I am astounded that I am approaching 500 posts. It doesn't seem that long ago that I didn't even know what a blog was! I am here now because my daughter was excited about the craft blogs she was reading and started her own blog. She used to talk to me about Two Little Banshees, Kitty Genius, My Paper Crane, and Inside a Black Apple. There were lots of others as well. I was a basic technophobe, but I liked what I was reading and looking at so much I had to become more computer literate. She sat next to me and coached me through setting up my blog and posting those first few times. My head was spinning every time I touched my blog! But it got better. Now I can even help you if you want some help setting up a blog! I think the main reason I got comfortable with the whole computer thing is because my Bradley bought me my own laptop. I feel so lucky. This nearly 500 post ride has been wonderful. So much inspiration. So many friends. So many opportunities to stretch myself and learn new things. I am looking forward to the next 500!!! So, look out for the all-singing, all-dancing, all-giveaway 500th post. A celebration of blogging!

500 - that is a lot of posts, mine is sneaking up as well (I'm making a couple of things for the giveaway). I do know how you feel with getting sick of the pies and tarts, it is a bit the same with the Dear Jane

Your Pie & Tart blocks are well worth finishing even if it takes you a long time to do it.

500? That is about double from mine... I have 246 at the moment... Wonder how many I have been reading along ;-)
Since quilting and any other hobby is supposed to be fun, you were very wise to set your pies apart when you did not like them. Hope you will be able to eat some more before they are getting onto you again! I love them a lot, but then, I haven't tried them and they seem to be an awful lot of work!
