Catching Up...

Guess who has high-speed internet? this girl! I forgot just how nice it is. After more than a year on dial-up I am thrilled with high speed. I can use Pinterest again, which is pretty fun. I also "revived" my old instagram. The link is on my sidebar if you are also on IG. I have a ton of e-mail to go through so if you haven't heard from me, you will soon :)
I still want to have a strawberry pincushion swap (mentioned in the previous post) and will set up a flickr group for it this week. I'll let you know when I do.
I've been trying to organize my tiny little sewing space and my stash. My husband made this cabinet for me years ago and it's been in our kitchen, using it to hold my vintage Pyrex, tea pots and cook books. I stole it from my kitchen and put it in our room to hold my fabric. Sounds reasonable, right? I have a big storage container holding about this much more fabric. I think my stash is pretty well under control. I know exactly what I have now. My next project is tackling scraps. yikes!

I pulled out some old blocks that I need to keep working on, just waiting for some solid white to arrive. My toddler loves playing with the dresden petals. Future quilter? hope so :)

I had a custom order for a Christmas stockings bird quilt. These are a favorite of mine to make, with each stocking representing your child, grand child or family member. Seven stockings, blessed indeed!

I have a link to share with any of you fellow homeschoolers or those of you considering it. It's a completely free, full k through high school, every subject curriculum. Seriously, a true blessing to many. Check it out here.

I was wondering if any of you might be able to answer a question for me?... Sometimes I see links to my blog and on the url they say .au, .se, or .uk not .com Does anyone know why that happens? Is it a blogger thing? Just curious.

Hope all is well where you are....
Happy sewing!
xo Erin

au is Australia
uk is United Kingdom ( ie Great Britain)
Your fabrics look very pretty

Love your stockings quilt!
The ending after your blog address is what blogger automatically puts after, depending on the country you are in when you post a link.
I am in Germany, so if I would link to you, the ending would say de.
If I were in Australia, the ending would be au.
se is Sweden, fr is France, uk is Great Britain etc. the list goes on endlessly :)

Blogger hosts locally, so you'll see wherever the person is looking at your site from based on the link.

A few I can think of off the top of my head

.ca is Canada
.au is Australia
.nz is New Zealand
.za is South Africa
.se is Sweden
.de is Germany
.fr is France
.ie is Ireland
.uk is UK (which is not actually Great Britain as a commenter above put, but the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland - you can see why we shorten it ;o) )

What a pretty post...so much to see and love! Your blocks on the design board are just gorgeous, as is the stash. That little birdie quilt is charming, too!

YAY...faster internet! Glad to see you...and am waiting for the strawberry pincushion swap. Love all the pretties.

Erin @ Why Not Sew? Quilts said...

Thank you all! and thanks for the info about the url thing. I realized they were countries but didn't know that blogger did that. love learning new things!

Becca said...

Glad you are up to speed! Everything looks cute.

I have noticed you on Pinterest more lately... I always enjoy seeing what you pin! PS: I love, love, love your birdies and stockings. So cute.

It's so interesting to see your fabric stash -- you have such a sense of color that all these different pieces look like they belong together! The colors and patterns remind me of Amy's Nana Company. You both favor sweet, romantic prints and get the cutest results from them! (And I always love your birdie quilts!)

Tammy said...

Love your stash of Pyrex vintage and the fabrics. And the birdie stockings is way too cute. Great job.

Your pictures took my breath away! We share the same love of pretty fabric, many are ones I have. I would love to be included in the pincushion swap if I can. Have a blessed day!
