For the first post, I thought of introducing who we are and what this blog will be about. Frankly, though, I was horrified that first day of school,  when the teacher asked us to 'stand up and introduce yourself'. When my turn came, my face turned red, I shuffled my feet and avoided eye contact, and mumbled something that included my first name and almost nothing else of a personal nature. Although I think I said something about 'liking kittens'.

Not much has changed in all these years, so instead I'll talk about the blog. There will be three of us posting, so we'll probably sign our posts by name. We all crochet, but we also do other things of a crafty nature, so you may see something about knitting, a post about cooking, a quilting project, or whatever is inspiring us at the moment.

I personally crochet, knit and embroider. I also have a tendency to plunge headfirst into projects that I am really not in any way prepared for, so you'll see a lot of "Ummm....this is cute but really hard" posts from me. On the other hand, there's no other feeling like finishing a difficult project and showing it proudly to someone, who will usually respond "That's great. What is it again?"

So with three of us contributing, there will be a wide variety of interests and viewpoints. There may be three posts a day or none for weeks on end. But I thought this would be a fun way to share what we're working on, things that are inspiring us, and problems that we face. Whether this whole blogging thing will keep our interest for any length of time remains to be seen.
