Now about Kwilty Pleasures Blog...
I began my blog in the fall of 2011
I had less than 20 followers for a VERY long time.
I really didn't understand what all the hoopla was about!!!
But, I knew I love to write...love technology...love kwilting...
Blogging had to be what I should be doing!
is my registered trademark name I was using for my patterns,
classes, bag labels, etc. Sseemed perfect for my blog name.
A Kwilty Pleasure is anything fabric or fiber in
the kwilting world that puts a smile on your face and
fills your creative soul with pleasure.
I love to participate in blog hops, blogger kwilt shows,
blogger give-aways, linky parties, blogger swaps
and I will participate in a kwilt-along or a bee in the future.
I don't have any sponsors but would like to know more about
how to engage them? Any suggestions?
When I am not Kwilting or Blogging
you will find me in My Garden
or watching The Ohio State Buckeyes...because...
I hope you find my blog worthy of a return visit.
And of course, I would love for you to...
If you made it this far...then here is something fun
most people don't know about me...
Meet Raheja, Middle Eastern Dancer
Many "Egyptian Moons" ago, belly dancing was my creative outlet. I danced for 15 years, taught it for 13 years.
