Entering the blog world

With much encouragement, I've decided to enter the blog world.  I've kept a journal for a few years and wrote in my book Gone to Texas, that I wasn't ready to share my thoughts with everyone. So why now???  A simple answer is time for a change.  I've resisted technology, readily choosing to design quilts on graph paper, rather than the computer, for instance. Nevertheless, change can be good. Technology is good.  I'm embracing both change and technology, even if slowly.
Please be patient with me as I learn how to post something of interest.

So what will you find here in Betsy's Best?

My life as it applies to the things I love... fabric, quilts, antique quilts, more fabric, my cats, family and friends and ???
"The longest journey begins with the first step." 
Please join me on this journey.

Today, meet my furry friends...
Molly, who  has to be first, always ready for her closeup.
Could she be the reason I can't sew????

The youthful crew: from the left Molly, Winston and Hudson

The old girls: Bandit on the left, and Shadow, who recently passed, is on the right.

Bye sweet girl.

 Until next time...
Happy New Year 2012


  1. Love your sweet kitties! I still prefer sketching quilt designs on paper rather than computer. EQ7 is getting dusty, but that's okay. Looking forward to whatever you share. :o)

  2. Welcome to blogging! I enjoy your books and fabrics, and will look forward to getting to know you better here.

  3. Many welcomes from Granbury. I look forward to following your blog.

  4. Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging, Betsy! I remember seeing a photo of your sweet kitties last year. I'm so sorry to hear that you recently lost Shadow. Bandit bears a striking resemblance to my childhood cat, Jean Pierre, but don't tell her that as she probably won't appreciate being compared to a catboy! K-

  5. What ! No brown cats???

    These black ones are beauties....
