WOW: Hazel & Moving with the Times

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
I was never into Facebook. I must admit the whole FB "revolution" passed me by and I was happy about it. But now I see that it can serve some purpose other than being an annoying intrusion. Moving over to Facebook is the best decision I have made regarding my BOM Group and if you haven't come over yet, I encourage you to do so. Yes, I know the resentment many feel towards FB which is why I offer my block downloads right here on my blog each month too. But let me tell you; the support, conversations and networking over in my BOM Group is really incredible. The amount of creativity and connecting and image sharing has taken the Group to a whole new level. One that I'm really enjoying.

This blog will always be my home, but over in my BOM Group, the conversation never stops. So if you'd like to link up with others creatively, it's the place to be. I suppose you could say I'm moving along with the times.,.and not a minute too soon.

This 8 Point Star block is my Hazel centre and this is where I'm up to right now. I'm loving the Fassetts and think I'm content enough to leave it as is. I'll see how I feel after having it up on the wall for a few days. Today I'm sewing and photographing stages of sample blocks to show members next month.
What's Your WOW?

  1. Totally agree with you about Facebook. I've had an account for a long time, but never paid much attention to it other than to check on what the kids were doing. Now I go there at least once a day to see what everyone is doing with their quilt projects. The interchange of ideas is amazing and fun. Having said that, I'm here, so I'll comment on your block - WOW! It's fabulous! I've been indecisive about my Hazel center because most of my fabrics seemed too busy or too large a pattern, but now that I see how yours looks with the rest of the block completed, you're inspiring me to forge ahead. Thank you! Can't wait till next month.

  2. I think one thing about facebook is people think every thing on it is out there for the world to see - you just have to make sure you mark you page as private and no one sees anything - and your group is private so no one else sees your things anyhow. I only have my family on my facebook list and then I belong to your group and one other and both are closed. I don't want the whole world to see my things.

  4. Love your Hazel so far. You've included one of my favourite fabrics with your green Fasset. I like it so much that I made my oven gloves with this as an outer layer so that I could enjoy it every day!

  7. Lovely Hazel! I adore Kaffe, so that might be part of it, but truly it's really lovely.

  8. I too am trying to move with the times, as I was beginning to feel quite left behind. But I still don't have a smart phone! Thanks for the linkup.

  9. It took me quite a long time to finally join facebook. All my online friends were addicted to games there.
    I use it now only to share posts that I do other places and such. I really don't socialize there much.

  10. I to am very happy about the move to Facebook. While I appreciate yahoo groups, they are literally an institution on the internet, but they've become so spammy that moving to FB really makes sense. I check FB at least once a day, so this is a perfect move for me also and I'm glad you've done it.

    This is a beautiful project Esther, love the color choices also. Cya on FB :)
