Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
Marija and I spent a couple of hours last night getting the blog back in business. That gorgeous photo in our header is a border from our 2012 raffle quilt. Marija did the quilting on a long arm–you should see it “in person”. Lots of leaves, flowers, McTavishing (did I spell that right?). I think I’m going to buy lots of tickets. I would gladly redecorate the bedroom, were I to be so lucky to win it. Make sure to come to the quilt show (Apr. 27-29) so you can get a good look at it, along with about 300 other quilts. The retrospective of Alice Bachraty’s quilts (one of the founders of the guild) will be wonderful, and of course all the work from our members is not to be missed either.
One of the reasons we have been wanting to go to a new blog provider is so that we could add some bells and whistles, so to speak. Maybe in quilters terms, we wanted to add some embellishments and feathers! Our first one is the “follow” widget you see in the left hand sidebar. If you wish, you can “subscribe” to this blog by giving your e-mail address in the box. You then will get an e-mail notice every time something new is posted by either Marija or myself. Cool beans!!
We’re hoping to try out the photos and video capabilities as we head into quilt show set-up. We’re going to try to give you a behind the scenes tour of the
mayhem, pandemonium, bustle-that’s the word, as quilts are dropped off, labeled, arranged and hung in preparation for the big party. Can’t wait to try this all out.
I’ve been saving this link for a while to share when the new blog came along. Aren’t these amazing designs–in the snow yet–by a Frenchman who walks around in snowshoes to make them? Click here to see the great photos.
If you are fascinated by these, at the end of that you can link to his facebook page for more photos and some comments from him.
That’s all for now, folks. My goal is to put some new feature in each post for awhile, so what shall I try next? Hmmm…
