December 15th is Annual Quilting Bee Blog day!
The Quilting Bee is an online club in which the members trade pixeled patches to make electronic “quilts” on their websites.
I joined the club on July 29, 2007, but I knew about it way before then. I came across The Quilting Bee a few years ago. I wasn’t confident enough in my ability to pixel, and I also didn’t think that I had enough time to devote to being a part of the club. I also didn’t know much at all about the club, or I would have known those were silly reasons not to join. However, I would often go to the site and look through the members list to find new, cute sites to look at.
I sort of drifted away from updating my website completely when I went to college. This past summer I decided to revamp sillylittlepanda.com back into a blog. I was trying to decide on a new set up for everything and decided to once again go through the Q*Bee’s members list to see how some of the sites that I used to visit were doing. Then I thought, I’ve been lurking for years; why not just join?
Since I have been a member of this club I’ve made lots of new friends. Some of us even exchanged some Christmas ornaments, and I have Christmas cards from as far across the globe as Denmark and Thailand, not to mention all over the US.
I love the activities, too! I have participated in the aquarium activity in August (here is mine), and also the one for Halloween (my page here). Soon I will get my Christmas page set up aswell.
If you aren’t a part of the bee already, check it out!
