Welcome back to the blog world. I did the same thing and restarted blogging just before Thanksgiving. Having a subject (such as quilting and crafts) to blog about helps.I love all your projects! I too don't know how to machine quilt, so have a large stack of quilt tops (aka "flimsies") that need to be worked on.Love, love, love that apron! I just might have to borrow that idea.
