Last week I did a tutorial for Migrating Geese. This week I will do a tutorial for a block that I call “Nesting Geese” There are four baby geese in this block. That tutorial will be ready tomorrow. This is the block.
The reason this tutorial will be on Thursday is because last week this blog suddenly had some technical issues. I immediately contacted Technical Support at the web host and they were able to get things working again. However they told me that I had 30 days to make some changes. I was able to update everything except this blog. And every time I tried, it broke the blog. I spent hours and days reading and exploring to find what was wrong with the code behind the blog to see why the update wouldn’t work. I had finally come to the conclusion that I would lose 14 years of blog posts and was beginning to accept that. And then finally, last night the light at the end of a very dark tunnel appeared, I hit upon the right code to make things work, and “voila” –everything is updated and working. Happy Happy Dance – you cannot know how good it feels to have that off my shoulders.
In the meantime, I am working on a quilt for something new for AccuQuilt that will come out next year so besides working on the blog, my time has been spent getting this project off my sewing table. Can’t wait until 2023 when you can see this.
The weather ahead for the next three days is in the upper 70’s and clear, and we should be able to dry out from the tropical storm Ian that came through last weekend. The yard looked like tossed salad from all of the limbs and leaves that came down, but other than losing the top of a maple tree and one of our dogwood trees, everything was safe. And slowly but surely we’re picking up all of the limbs and mowing through the smaller leaves and clearing everything back to normal.
