Heaven help me. What have I done? In an attempt to “upgrade” my blog, I registered a new shorter address to eliminate the need to type wordpress all the time. I wanted to increase the amount of photo memory available, as I have a lot of photos on my blog. Also when I’m ready to post a video, I have that capacity. Aside from those things, I don’t know what I’ve gotten into.
I’m really not sure of the consequences of my actions, but it’s done now. I thought that if I waited till I really understood everything involved in the transition, I would never be able to do it. I think that anyone wanting to follow my blog needs to sign up for emails at the bottom of the page. I’m not sure, but I think that’s how it works. So, if you are at all interested in seeing what I’m up to, please sign up for email notification. You can still “manage” how often you receive those notifications.
That brings me to another thing. I have faithfully blogged at least 3 times per week for the last year. I enjoyed doing it, and setting up a schedule was good discipline. Now I’m ready for a break of sorts. I’m switching to a twice a week schedule, and I’m only doing the photo challenge when I feel like it! There, I said it. Now let’s see what happens… I doubt there will be any effect at all, except on the time I will spend writing posts. Perhaps I’ll have time to read a few more blogs now! I’m afraid that my reading and commenting falls by the wayside when I get busy. And I have been busy.
Today was an exciting day in the studio. I completed some quilt blocks that I’ve been working on. In an attempt to use fabric and create something wonderful for my family and friends, I have decided to make quilts. I mean, who doesn’t love a colorful, hand-made quilt? Since I don’t seem to be able to do anything in a small way, I started with enough blocks to make at least 5 quilts. 100 blocks in a loose interpretation of a log cabin pattern. As you can see from the photos, I’m using a huge assortment of fabrics. I’m loving the challenge of using my fabric inventory (with the addition of some necessary color value purchases). Here’s a peek at my handiwork:
Next I need to arrange the blocks, decide on the borders and sew them together. I’ll be shipping the completed quilt tops to my friend, Louise, at Red Red Bobbin in Ontario for the quilting. Once quilted, I’ll get them back to bind the edges and they will be complete. While the quilts are away I’ll be able to start more! I didn’t think my post would be complete without a photo of my trusty assistant, Kush. She may not be that helpful, but she is a superb companion!
P.S. I have heard from several readers that my posts till show up in their readers, so disregard that suggestion to sign up for email (unless you want to of course). See, I told you I didn’t know what I was doing!
