Hi, Sarah. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you found us—and I love, love, love the name and tagline and cover illustration for your blog! Genius! Congrats on your recent move—and good luck with the broccoli. I’m guessing you’ve got it under control, but there are plenty of folks on HOMEGROWN who, I’m sure, would be willing to offer some words of advice, if needed. And you will *have to* share some photos of your quilt, either in progress and/or once it’s finished; cross-posting from the Mama Pirate to our member blog, The Stew, is A-OK with us! It seems like you’re finding your way around HOMEGROWN just fine (hooray!), but you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
