The Wayback Machine and 5 New BOTM/SAL’s Added…

Hi Everyone, I’ve a little bug going on with my site at the moment, it has to be due to some of the wordpress updates lately. I’m working to try and find it. It seems to affect older pages on this site and not the newer ones tho, but if you try reloading the page you may see it also, it kinda looks like the path to the images. The bug affects all images, so I’ll be testing my plugins over the next few days to see which are current and which aren’t. I’m hoping it’s a simple problem like that and nothing else. 

Today I came to my blog to add some edits to the BOTM page for 2019, at least two BOTMs have finished and 4 more are starting or have started and I wanted to get them posted to you today. I realized pretty quickly that my sidebar stuff was gone, all that was there was the search bar, and the social icons, everything else was gone. One of the things about WordPress is that when you even switch a theme, the one backup you should make over everything else you also have to back up is your widgets on your Continue reading

2018 Web Event’s Around The World

2018 Around The Web

2018 Around The WebThere are many things that bring quilters together, but one of the funnest each year is a block of the month, or a quilt along, row along or any other event that captures our imagination and creativity.

Whether you participate in a class at your LQS or one from a blog on the web, they are totally fun and enjoyable. From Mystery Quilts to Pieced and Applique, a block of the month around the web or in your LQS varies depending on what the teacher/designer/blogger wants to do. Some will give you a tutorial, some will write out the full pattern on the post page for the block, some will give you a pattern to download and like me, assume you know what you’re doing. As an applique designer and so many ways to applique, I create my patterns so depending on your favorite technique you can do what your most comfortable with. Each of these bloggers who are featured also does so.

Last week I presented you with a list of known blogs at the Continue reading
