In honor of my 6 years of blogging since August 2005, I will give tribute to my grandfather, Jan Scholten, who is responsible for the title of this blog. My Scholten cousins are gathering in August so this seems timely. Watch for a picture of nearly the whole dozen of the klein meisjes!
I also plan, for the next year, to blog a tip each Monday. There is so much we do as quilters that is second nature, and we don't acknowledge that we had to learn them at one point. Many of you will say, "I do that all the time," but you had to figure it out somewhere. Watch for simple things, complex things, and things that make you question just what kind of mind I have.
