Welcome to my first post on my first blog. I have been reading so many great blogs out there in blogland for so long I decided to see if I could set one up. So here goes.....What I like about blogs is that they are a great place to share my quilts, favorite recipes and bits and pieces of my life. I know I have a lot to learn about blogging but hopefully with time and some learning mistakes it will take shape.

I picked the name Polka Dot Cottage for two reasons. First of all, I just love polka dots and second the word cottage evokes a sound of warmth and homeyness to me. You might think I live in the beautiful countryside of Maine or Connecticut but the reality is I live in the suburbs of Los Angeles. My grandfather once said he never saw so much concrete in one place.

Well here is my first picture and what else would it be but polka dots. These are just a few of what is in my stash. The funny thing is I have never made a polka dot quilt. I have a pattern in mind and it's on my list of things to sew. I know we all have those to-do lists and it will be a miracle if they all get finished before I get to the nursing home.

Please come back and visit my blog again. I hope to post regularly until I run out of things to say, favorite recipes to share or run out of quilts to show.

Happy Day, JanDee
