I'm excited to share so more updates on our blog site. I hope you'll make use of them. As I mention some days ago, we installed an upgrade of our CMS and this has allowed some things to be fixed as well as a couple of additional features added.
With today's economy and the price of fabrics, we have to make the most of our fabrics and use them wisely. I don't know about you, but I don't throw away the smallest of scraps. The question is, how does one use these small pieces effectively. I do believe Susan Brittingham has the answer.
Finally today I launched my new quilt pattern. It has been waiting to happen for a while but I was somewhat putting it off. My creation, "The Vineyard", a serene and quiet setting where the sun nourishes the grape to produce the most wonderful wine. Ahhhh yes, wine. I'm sipping quietly on a red wine as I type.
Celebrations is Anita Eaton's newest class. This is a fun project where you add your own creations to create your occasion with the help of Anita. She shares many fun techniques to embellish your quilt such are crochet wedding bands and three-dimensional flowers.
Last weekend when I was selecting my fabrics, I went ahead and also cut them out giving the instructions as I went so if you missed the cutting instructions be sure to check out last Sunday's blog post.
I was just looking back at when I added a jigsaw to my blog - like it was the beginning of the year! The blog challenge of 2013 was over and I posted that I would be catching up on things that had been neglected while keeping up with the challenge. I can now say that my new CMS is installed for my blog (one of the things I was catching up on). You may have noticed some weird goings on, but hopefully none other than a little cosmetics. In any case, if you do have a favorite page and it doesn't appear as it should, be sure to let me know.
September in the southern hemisphere means spring so that's a good reason to use some really bright fabrics - well that's my excuse. You can use whatever you have in your stash, but bright is good :) If you missed week one rules follow this link: September Week 1 Rules
Stitch along this week is very easy for me seeing as I already pulled fabrics out for the instructions a couple of days ago. I used one of the six fabrics from the selection. It was the batik with butterflies and dragonflies on.
In the Southern Hemisphere Spring has begun. Flowers are starting to bloom and everything is beginning to look fresh so this month I wanted to use bright colors. Really bright colors. Will you join me?
