Tutorials

In the 18 months or so that I've been blogging I've posted several different tutorials. I've had a couple people suggest that I post links to those tutorials on my sidebar. Now that I'm back to typing with two hands - sort of, anyway - I've begun. Right now only two are listed - the Crumb Chaos block tutorial and the appliqué hints. I know there are at least four more to list that I wrote in 2006 on precision piecing and pressing tips. I will try to get those links posted tonight or tomorrow. I hope some of you find these useful.

One of my Tangled Threads friends has taken pity on me as I'm going stir crazy here at home. She is picking me up in a few minutes an we are heading north to a wonderful quilt shop that I've visited only once over 4 years ago. It feels like cheating, but I guess it's really not. After all, the doctor says I can't work, and I really can't when I can't write or type much. It's a beautiful day for a drive - or should I say ride - and at least I'll be out of the house. I'll report on the trip tonight.

Oh good for you! Have fun!

But you can still walk and there isn't anything else wrong so I don't think it's cheating. You go girl!

Jane Ann said...

Oh, Patti, I'm behind on my reading and just now learned of your predicament. I'm so sorry! Your friend definitely understands the concept of "mercy mission." Hope it was a blast.

(The index is a great idea too.)

It's a morale ride that's what it is! Enjoy :)

Patti, I'm just getting caught up-- good grief, what a bad turn of events for you! Glad you're feeling a little better and certainly a trip to a quilt shop is the very best therapy! Take good care...

cher said...

can't wait to hear all about it!
and looking forward to hearing what your doctor visit on Monday tells you as well. It's the pits for a quilter to not be able to do any sewing at all...so unfair.

Nicole said...

Glad you are feeling better! What rotten luck! Enjoy your outing and get better quick.

Patti,
I hope your day trip was great-how are you feeling? Did you ever figure out what made you fall out of bed in the first place? Not feeling good shouldn't make you do something like that.
I'm so glad you're doing the tutorials. Saves me time going back all the time to the old blogs. I printed off the applique hints and put them in a safe place. So, of course I can't find them.lol

Have a good drive and get all inspired again! Hope your arm is feeling better soon and you can get back to creating your wonderful things.

I'm going to try your mile a minute blocks.

Erin said...

Karen said...

Looking forward to hearing about the visit to the quilt shop. Hope your arm continues to get better; as Eileen says, did you ever figure out what happened to make you fall out of bed?

Nicole and Phil said...

Hope that arm is feeling better soon!
The quilts you ahve been working on are gorgeous! The mile a minute is a fun quilt, and a great way to use up scraps!
