For your information only.

Hello friends.

I thought I should let you know why I have been putting off posting anything on the blog. Since my last post, I’ve been experiencing some challenges on the blog (I suspect the update I did recently). For instance, I was unable to reply your comments individually because I didn’t get email notifications for any comment.I’m not even 100% sure my email subscribers got any notification for that post. I’ve tried every suggestions on the support forum to no avail. Have you experienced this, how did your sort it out? (I’ll very much appreciate any help you can share on this in your comments). I’ve reached out to WordPress support and my hosting providers for their help. Hopefully that gets resolved this week. In the meantime, I have been sewing and can’t wait to share what I’ve been up to with you.

I mentioned my table eventually made it home and it’s been great not to have to slouch or strain my back as I sew. I have to say we are having so much fun together. For the first time I have decent space to the left of my machine. Free motion quilting has certainly been less stressful with this new set up.

Oh and I finally remembered I bought machingers gloves a while back. I didn’t believe it would make any difference but it did! I am also learning not to dread basting so much this year. It helps that I bought some Dritz size 1 curved pins, they are so strong and go through the layers easily.

This was supposed to be a very brief post…I’ll stop now but let me also inform you that I’ve signed up for the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop 🙂 and I’m already meeting and learning from some amazing quilters all over the world!

What have you been up to? I’d love to read all about it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend ahead.

P.S: I reply to all comments on the blog for now and will reply via email ASAP!
