A sneak peek

My knowledge of blogging is limited to this: If I type what I want to appear in a post in the little box that comes up when I click "New Post" it just magically shows up here. I can even post a pic, color the type, and create a link to another page. It's not that I'm stupid...just too busy to spend the time on learning much beyond that. (Sometimes I'm stupid, too.)

I know my friend Jami, back in Iowa, has tried to post a comment to the blog and it wouldn't allow her to. I had no answers because I'm oblivious. But I decided to look around my settings and, lo and behold, it was set to only receive comments from members. I hadn't even paid attention to whether or not there were comments because I was getting emails and that was fine with me.

I've changed the settings and, if you'd like, you can now make posts to this blog and maybe we can get a little interaction going among us. Of course, if the spammers start bombarding me, the settings will be changed back. But, in the meantime, feel free to be the first to comment.

I also found out that I could create a link to allow you to email posts to your friends. So, if you know someone who might be interested in what I have going on here, please send them a link to join us. The more the merrier.

Here's a bit of a tease. The guy in the opening photo is coming soon. Check back later for the whole picture! :)

Thanks for checking in on me and for being patient with the "oblivious guy".


  1. Yeah, Patrick!!! I love the Santa that you posted! I think I may have to get that pattern when it is ready! Is the pattern fusible or needle turn applique. I don't do needle turn so good! :o)
    I love seeing what all you are working on and can't wait for my LQS's to start carrying your new fabrics! I love Iowa, but the LQS's are a little slow sometimes getting the new fabrics in.

  2. Wow, he is too cute! I'm hoping to see more new stuff in Des Moines at the AQS show. Hopefully I'll see some of your stuff, my all time favorite.

    I was way too happy to see you have a blog. Keep up the great work you do.

  3. Thanks so much, Jami and Mandy! I'm having lots of fun working on these new patterns. I'm posting another new one (maybe two) today so I hope you'll check them out.

    Have a great weekend and keep in touch. We Iowa "folk" need to stick together ;-)
