Well Saturday was Grow Your Blog day and what fun it was and still is:) I have visited maybe a third of the almost 600 blogs that were involved. There are some really wonderful blogs out there and if you are interested and want to know what the heck I'm talking about go to my blog post here.
I'm having a giveaway that is open to everyone and will run until February 15th. So go to my post and leave a comment to be entered.
I also want to send a big thank you to my new followers for joining me here....and, a thank you to all of you that visted my blog to take a look see:)
Now on to WIPs. If you have looked at my previous posts you will know that I have just ventured into the realm of crazy quilting.
I read somewhere that you should do your block in stages.
- do the piecing
- add laces
- add trims
- do the embroidery
- add beads
- and, then buttons if any

You haven't done much you say.......well I have been visiting lots of blogs.....and doing some genealogical research.
Here's the latest.
I had this uncle named Henry but called Harry born in Glasgow in 1911 who was my mum's oldest brother. While I was able to find out about my mum's other siblings I have never been able to find out anything about Harry. All I knew was that he was married....to a war widow with a daughter....and had two other children.
My second cousin who is my research buddy lives in Scotland. She went to the records office in Glasgow on Monday determined to find anything she could about him.
She hit the mother lode.......I was speechless and for me to be speechless....well that never happens....LOL
Yes Harry was married but not to a war widow with a daughter......where that story came from I have no idea...my brother I think. What til I see him...ha!
AND......he had FIVE children. How about that then? I have five cousins born in Glasgow who I have never met and who probably know nothing about me. My family lived in London. We came to Canada when I was 4 1/2 and Harry's children were all born after me. That was strange to find out as Harry was the oldest so you'd think his children would be older but he married when he was 38.
His oldest daughter was married in 1974 to an American soldier. How she met him in Glasgow....who knows? She lives somewhere in the USA now...so close yet so far.
So that was Monday....hopefully the rest of my week will be less shocking:)
I'm joining up with The Needle & Thread Network so come on over and see what my fellow Canadians are up to.
