Pin It Weekly #275 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Time to check in with new followers and say hello, don't you think? You know how I love old buildings. Well, Melissa Walraven has a board titled Churches, Barns and Old Homes. You can make a safe bet that I'll be pinning a few of the 270+ pins that she has.

Pin It Weekly #268 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I missed last week's PIW because I was volunteering at Beta convention. Now that it's over, and I've recovered, I'll help babysit grandies while we pass the crud around like we're playing hot potato. Ryder is in the hospital, Marley and Sophie both are running fevers, and Milly's little nose is raw from being cleaned so often.

Let's meet a couple of new followers, shall we? Maria das Dores Lima's boards are all titled in Portuguese. I translated them using Google

How is your pinning going? Apparently I've got lots of pin-friends. New followers welcome! Here are a few pins from my week. Pinterest is a good time filler when sitting in a doctor's office or standing in line.

Sometimes I am truly in awe over what my baby (my beautiful machine) and I can create! #sewing #longarmsewing #quilting #quiltsofinstagram Now accepting orders!! DM me!Do you have a Pin Twin? Apparently after you've played on Pinterest long enough, their artificial intelligence finds other pinners who have similar interests and sends an email introducing you. I don't know if the other pinner gets an email singing your praises, but I do know that it gets me. Every. Time.
