Celebrating Our Fifth Year Together

milo-cover

For those of you long-time blog readers, you might remember when I first brought Milo home, back in 2011, Milo came to live with me. He was just 10 weeks old. While Canada celebrates Remembrance Day and our American friends celebrate Veterans’ Day, I also remember the day I picked up sweet Milo. He has changed my life in so many ways!

Have you ever made a Churn Dash quilt block? Perhaps in a sampler quilt? It’s an unassuming block that, as a quilting teacher, has great potential as a learning opportunity for quilters of all experience levels.

Hello!! Anybody out there?? Yes, it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. Several months in fact. A far longer break than I ever intended, but ya know, life sometimes gets in the way. Let’s get caught up!

The Server Move and Love is in the Air

flower-petals-mug-rug

Let’s just say it’s been FUN *sarcasm*. What started out as a very simple problem, escalated considerably. I won’t bore you with the exact details. Since mid-November, the server has had numerous failures, some of them full outages, and others just components. I had to make the decision to move to another provider and hire a colleague to manage the new server for me.

Our friends at the Fat Quarter Shop have a fun series they’ve been sharing, called the Classic & Vintage Series. The idea is to freshen up an old block with new fabrics. They are providing free downloads for the featured block pattern and a step-by-step video showing how to complete each block.
