Hi there! I'm Andrea and I blog at Millions of Thoughts. I'm a wife of one, mom of two boys, alpha master of a dog and cat...and a quilter. I am currently addicted to chocolate, jicama, sushi, and smoked oysters. I love reading trashy romance novels and I watch my soap opera every day (usually in fast forward, but still...)
I love to quilt. When I quilt, I can only work on one project at a time, and need to completely finish it before I start another quilt. I love to work in solid colours. When I design a quilt, I design the pattern first in black and white, and then add the colour. I used to be a closet quilter until the world of blogging opened my eyes to the world of others who share the same passion as me.
I had not considered any other names at the time. I really just had all of these thoughts that I needed to write out. I sat at the computer and when blogger asked me for a name - I chose Millions of Thoughts Trapped in My Head - without realizing how long I would keep up my blogging and how the process would evolve over the years!
Now that you are recognized by Millions of Thoughts, are you happy with it, or do you wish you could change it to something else?
I am not sure that I am recognized by my blog name - but, it will be hard to transition to a new name. Millions of Thoughts has been with me for so long!
Now that my blog is more quilting focussed I would like to rename it eventually. I still love to dabble in quilt design and construction of simple, graphic quilts. But, I have this gnawing part of me that always needs to learn more. Recently, I've purchased a longarm quilting machine and am training to become a pro at it so that I can quilt for others. My new longarm quilting business will be called Urban QuiltWorks, so I'm sure that over time, I will transition my blog slowly to that name.
Andrea and Millie--I think they are both cute, don't you?Thanks, Andrea! I hope you will all head over to her blog and say hi.
