Grow Your Blog

I have signed up with the fabulous Vicki at 2 bags full for her annual 
Grow Your Blog

so now it's time to tell you a little about me

My name is Julie, but most people call me Julz, 

 I love quilting, stitcheries, making cloth dolls, especailly angels snowmen and Santa's,
and playing with fabric in general, 
have dabbled with knitting and crochet over the years, 
I enjoy photography, 
but my first love is quilting!
I have a little online business called Simple Stitches, 
I have designed a small range of patterns for different skill levels, 
these are available over on Craftsy under my shop Simple Stitches. 
(now I have that out the way) 
most of my blog is about sharing a little of what goes on behind the scenes here at Simple Stitches central, 
so you will get to see what I'm currently working on, swaps I might be in, photos I've taken, my girls, funny bits and pieces. 

I love blogland, there are soooo many talented ladies out there, 
willing to share their time, talent and experiences...
I have made many friends thru my blog and hope that I make a few more, 
some I will get to meet in person, 
some I probably never will, 
but we are all joined thru out love of fabric
and what we can do with it. 
 so pop on over to Vicki's blog to find the full list of ladies and gents participating in this years 
there are over 500  600 this year, so it may take a while, 
I believe that the list stays up so you can check out as you have the time...

a big big thank you goes to Vicki for all of her hard work in getting all the links to blogs up
....more than 600 of them!

so thank you to every one that visits in the next few days, 
thank you to every one that leaves a comment, 
and I will try to check out as many blogs as I can!

Here I am, a Stitching Lady from Germany. Like you tell, my heart is also with patchwork - although I am trying myself in many differet things. At the moment knitting seriously a sweater - but undoing constantly, brrr,
Lets grow our blogs....

Hi Julz....nice to meet you. I hope you are enjoying blog hopping. It has been fun. I could not find a link to your online business? Perhaps I missed it. Just wondered.

Terrible about the farmers. We are having a similar problem in California, though I haven't seen anything as terrifying as the farmer at the bottom of his dam.

On a lighter note, I love your little red bird at the end of this post! Check out my embroidery/ redwork blog if you are interested. (GYB)

Forgive me for coming to the party at the last minute, But 600 blog reading was a little tasking. I wanted to read and get to know the girls so I did read everyone's bio. Your my 552 blog and 24 hours left to go. If you like come visit My site contact info is I believe inspiration comes from all facets of life even knowing the great people out there with wisdom and knowledge the do's and don'ts and even the wonders of life from a personal point of view. I liked you following you on goggle connect and Bloglovin you. hope to see you in the cyber neighborhood I am new to blogging so I don't have a lot posted because I got side tract with GYB party. Kind of felt it was important to have some one read my silly chatter. I can't remember a time I didn't dabble in something creative. I tried a little of everything. But, my new love these days is Card making I just love it.
Oh thanks for letting me enter your give away.
