Has it really been almost one year since my last post? Lots of reasons that I won't bore you with for my absence but there was one technical issue I will share that others may have encountered. For over a year I have not been able to comment on your blogs regardless of the device I used. Also, I was not getting notified when a comment was made to my blog. I've always felt that blogging was a community where two way communication was critical.
After much research, I finally determined that all my devices are from Apple and the recent operating systems just do not recognize my gmail account on Safari. I downloaded Chrome and voila! I can now interact with your blogs as I have in the past and hopefully the comments function will work! (Hint, hint...)
OK, enough of the technical stuff, on to the important matters. In fact, I did very little sewing in 2019. I started this blog when I began quilting in 2012 to not only connect with the wonderful community of sewers but also to catalog my finishes. Therefore, I will use the next few blog posts to catch you up on my creative completions from last year.
From July to December, all available creative time was dedicated to this endeavor. The pattern is 18 count with lots and lots of thread changes, thread mixes and stitch varieties. I'm not sure that he really appreciates it yet (other than for the functional value as a receptacle for Santa's gifts) but I'm so pleased with how it finished.
This is where I purchased the kit.
