I love to read. Every Sunday I check the New York Times bestseller list and add to my own list of books to read.
Last week I was at my LQS and they have the latest edition of Quilter's Home Magazine, with an article called "55 best blogs." It was the first thing I turned to. I wasn't surprised to see a lot of blogs listed that I regularly subscribe to. A few stood out because not only are they do-not-miss reads for me, but also because I feel a growingconnection with the women behind them.
Amy from during quiet time makes amazing linocut-printed fabrics. I already have a small collection and great plans for each one.
Krista from poppyprint creates has given me a lot of valuable advice and I plan on learning more photography hints from her in the future.
Quiltish was one of the first blogs I started reading on a regular basis, and Allisa has been a fund of knowledge when it comes to starting and maintaining a small business.
Rachel from stitched in color always has great ideas, and it's always fun to see what Jennifer and Jessica are up to at twin fibers.
Jennifer of that girl, that quilt was mentioned elsewhere in the magazine. I admire her creativity and sensitivity, and value her friendship as well.
There are many more listed in the magazine, and even more not mentioned in the article but listed right over there on my blogroll, written by women who inspire me on a daily basis. The closer and more personal connections with people we may or may not ever meet in person but that come from realizing we have a lot in common mean a lot to me.
