1st post - take 2

Ok - so I have written this post once - but apparently forgot to save it. Being new at this blog thing will take some time. Giving it my best shot - so bear with me (which by the way is the name of my first quilt completed this year - only my second bed quilt ever finished.) It was started for my husband atleast 8 years ago. Every Christmas and birthday - when I asked what he wanted - he'd always respond - have you finished my quilt yet? Well - it was finally finished over the holiday break! Since it has bears all over it - I decided the perfect name was Bear with me!
Bear with me quilt
This bear quilt was a Debbie Mumm pattern from eons ago. I'll have to find the title of the book if anyone is interested. It is made entirely of flannel - except for the bears. I quilted mainly in the ditch - with x's across the big blocks. I also free motioned around the bears.

Welcome (to myself) to blog world

(edited - I found the first post!)
Ok - never done this but have been reading everyone else's blogs for quite a while now. So I will give it the old college try! I have been particularly stuck on amandajean's blog - which I will try to figure out how to link to her page.

In the mean time - a little about me. I am a 30 something mom to 3 princes (thus the queen bee title). The princes are 12, 11, and 5. I work outside of the home full time and quilt when I get a chance - not as often as I would like. I am also pursuing my master's degree. So hang with me - I probably will not be the most prolific poster.

My first picture will be the first completed project of the new year - a quilt for my king (dh).
