My Happy Place Is…

Morning Coffee With Boo

Morning Coffee With BooIt was so not easy to do this row. I have many things that make me happy. In the end, I created six rows for this row along because I wanted to decide which would be the easiest for me to do and I am now glad I picked the one I did because it doesn’t have a lot of shapes to it, under 50 in fact, and because of my leg issues in July, I wasn’t going to get this stitched out until I could get back up the stairs again. I did only move back upstairs with my desktop this past weekend, got the printer hooked up Tuesday, and when I have been upstairs I have been working on my row. I didn’t finish it until just last Friday. I love how it turned out and I hope you will enjoy it to.

I’m keeping this post as short as possible today, but plan to write a tutorial for you on tips and tricks I used to create this row tomorrow. I just didn’t have the time to do it today and my internet has been on and off all day long even tonight it’s feeling a bit wonky, I had to wait to write this post also. This is why I’m already late.

So, the back story… Continue reading

Day 5 of the My Happy Place Row Along…

My Happy Place RAL 2018

My Happy Place RAL 2018It’s about this time that I say.. WoW, here we are on day 5 and almost half way thru the Row Along. It doesn’t seem like two weeks have now passed, but they sure have. Thursday will be the half point of the Row Along.

So far, we have seen some really amazing rows and there are more to come.

A BIG note..I am having internet issues. Comcast has been here and has decided that the problem lays in the box outside so sometime in the next 14 days they will change my box. At the same time, my posts may be somewhat late (as I can’t release a post until the giveaways for the day are set) so I wanted you to be aware of this issue.

In the meantime, I have the winners from September 6, on this post also. All winners have been notified.

My Happy Place Row Along and here we are on Day 4…

My Happy Place RAL 2018

My Happy Place RAL 2018Today is day 4 of the My Happy Place Row Along, and boy aren’t the rows you’ve seen so far just amazing? I have seen the designs, but few of them I have seen already stitched out, so it’s great to be able to visit each of these blogs and see them stitched out and how each of the bloggers used there Northcott fabrics they received in their rows.

If your having issues with entering the giveaways, it’s pretty easy to do. You simply use the login box to enter your email address, it will then allow you to click on the entry boxes to do each of the tasks. Each task you do is an additional entry for a chance to win. Almost all of the giveaways have at least 4 chances to win. Rafflecopter will remember your login at each site you visit, so once you have logged into one site, you shouldn’t have to log in at again until the next featured day of the Row Along comes along.

I did not get the winners announced yesterday. I was down on the couch most of the day trying to get over a backache.. just below my shoulder bone and it’s still uncomfortable, but I am posting the winners below in this post.

My Happy Place Row Along Day 2…

My Happy Place RAL 2018

My Happy Place RAL 2018Well, day 1 didn’t go without its little quirks… My blog was having issues in the early morning to afternoon and it was difficult for some to access the site. I am lucky, I have a great host who is quick to help whenQ things go wrong. I have never stayed with a host as long as I have Inmotion Hosting, I usually will leave a host when they aren’t around to help with the little quirks that come up, and the one thing time after time that has impressed me the most about Inmotion is that they are quick to get you back up and running.

We had a small issue with the scheduling also but got it sorted out and that blog that was missing has been added to today’s schedule.

I thought the rows from the first day were amazing and from the comments, I’ve seen on each blog, so did you. I know the other designers love hearing from you so please do keep those comments coming.

Today’s Schedule includes  Continue reading
