I mentioned in my last post that I have just marked my second year of blogging. I have been thinking lately about making a change to the look of my blog. One change is the name - while I do love Pickledish, when I started blogging I didn't realize that this is also the name of the home of Kansas City Star Quilt Co., They are a shop, not a blog, but I still feel it's a bit close for comfort. So while the url for this blog will stay the same (at least for the present), I have given this blog a new name - Stitch Literate. I like this name because it is descriptive of me as a quilter, and it also resonates to what I do in my day job as a researcher into reading development. And having just marked Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, it seems like the perfect time to make a change.
I'm still feeling my way around this blog makeover - and I'm not quite sure that all the parts are working properly. If you feel inclined, please leave me a comment to say you can see the changes I've made to the blog. If you like them, you can thank my talented and very creative doctoral student, Lindsay. And because every blog post should have a photo, I'm posting this one of me - I don't like having my photo taken but from time to time it's nice to put a face to a name.
