Where in the World?
As I was heading through Ottawa today to vend my hand-dyed fabrics at the Ottawa Valley Quilters' Guild's Festival of Quilts I noticed the apple blossoms are in season. I love this time of year. I took the above photo along Prince of Wales Drive at the Central Experimental Farm a few years ago.
It was nice to have a few blog readers leave comments to my last post. It has been rather quiet out there. So I want to ask: what sorts of things would you like to read about? Please feel free to share. Since there were few comments of late, I checked my blog statistics last night to make sure anyone was still reading. Even when things are quiet, it seems there are still at least 200 page views per day. The statistics also revealed a big surprise!!! We have a lot of readers in Germany (Wilkommen, Ich spreche Deutsch!). As expected, most readers of this blog are located in the United States, and that is no surprise since I have exibited my work a lot in the US, belong to an organization that is based in the US (SAQA) as well as been published in US books and magazines. I would have expected Canadians to fall into the second largest group, but it is actually Germans that come in second place, with Canadians in third! France comes in fourth. After that we are looking at UK, Russia, India, Ukraine, Brazil, and China. Where ever in the world you are located, I want to say WELCOME! One of the wonderful features of our modern cyber life is that we make connections with friends around the world. Please do remember, that I also will travel anywhere in the world to teach! I am really looking forward to my upcoming visit to Quilt en Sud in St. Jean de Luz France later this month.
