For the third year in a row I'm participating in Cheryl Sleboda's annual 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge. I'll be sharing about a variety of topics including color inspiration, what I'm working on, organizational tips, and quilting tutorials. What would you like to read about? Leave a comment or email me to let me know what you'd like to see this month!
If you're new to my blog, here's a little bit about me. I am a former middle school math teacher and current traveling quilt teacher based in San Jose, CA. I love bold, saturated color in quilting and in life. My quilting style is varied, but my current workshops are planned improv technique based classes. I have two kids (ages 7 and 9) who both quilt and a husband who doesn't. ;-) When I'm not quilting or designing, I enjoy reading mysteries and playing board games. Our current favorite games include Pandemic, Puerto Rico, and Splendor. If you want to keep up with me, please sign up for my newsletter.
Visit Cheryl's blog for the list of optional prompts and the linkup with participating bloggers.
I admit, I wasn't expecting to get board game recommendations :) I love Pandemic but I think it's too complicated for my 6-year-old. Are the other two you mentioned a little easier? My husband and I love board games and are slowly introducing more complicated games to my son. Many of our games are 2-player and we do have Patchwork--picked out for the theme, of course!
Our kids play all of these. Depends on the 6-year-old. Has he/she seen you play Pandemic? It is a long game. Splendor is easy enough mechanics to try it with kids. And we loved Catan Junior when the kids were younger. Same mechanics as Settlers of Catan, but shorter game. Qwirkle is another good one that you could try with a 6-year-old. I shared about these and others last December. https://www.sarahgoerquilts.com/2018/12/13/favorite-board-games/ Thanks for visiting, Emily!
