When everything goes wrong…you quilt!

I have to say last week was ROUGH! On Thursday I went to my blog, like I do most days after I post to see if there were any comments I needed to reply to and my blog was GONE! I started calling technical support and basically got the runaround for most of the day. Finally learning that my blog had been hacked, and they weren’t going to help me fix it and until it was fixed, I was going to be down. In stepped Michele from Quilting Gallery, she is such a wonderful friend a true blessing, she took a peek around and calmed me down by re-assuring me that all of my data was still there. As I started to research people to hire to fix this problem my Uncle and Aunt reached out and offered to help me. A full week later and a major overhaul/upgrade. I am back up and running. I have no idea how many hours my Uncle worked on to get me back up, but I imagine it was quite a lot.  I am so thankful for my community!

Since I am dead useless with web stuff, I decided I needed to occupy my mind and lucky for me, my mom sent the perfect project, another fun baby quilt! I was going to do a simple all over design but the artist in me came out to play and what was supposed to be simple ended up as a custom all over design.

I had planned to ship this on Tuesday, but my poor Anne is sick with a fever again. Poor thing just can’t seem to catch a break, hopefully she will be back on her feet tomorrow and I can get it in the post tomorrow.

Have a wonderful and happy Thursday!

    Oh! When I looked at the pictures on Instagram (ha, ha, never going to get that), I didn’t realize the fish bowl was the back of the other quilt top! How clever your mother is. I see you didn’t fall far from the tree. =) Glad that nothing was lost in the blog mess. Is there a way to protect against the hacking? I have mine set on as low exposure as you can – all but private, but you can’t really do that … though we do know where you are already, so maybe. I don’t know if it even helps, though.
