A Humble Request
Please "bear" with me as I try to get the next DWR lesson up for you! (wokka wokka)
I mentioned this in passing before, but my family has been dealing with some very difficult issues recently, and this past weekend was particularly tough. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers - we could really use an extra boost of support right now! I really want to thank those of you that have checked in on me and emailed/commented with encouraging words - even though we're technically "strangers", I consider many of you friends from all our email chats over the past year, and it means a lot that you care enough to ask :)
I so wanted to be on time with my DWR post on Friday since I was a day late with the last one, but unfortunately it just wasn't possible this weekend, and I still haven't finished it. I posted the binding tutorial on Saturday because, 1) I finished writing that post on Tuesday after completing the Blueberry Hill quilt, so it was ready and rearing to go...and 2) I wanted to give you all something fun to try while you wait patiently. Originally I had planned to post that tutorial at the end of the Quilt Along because that's how I bound my last DWR quilt, but I think it was better things worked out like they did, because now you'll have time to practice on a few projects before we wrap things up in September!
I know I've been a little sporadic with my posts lately, and I probably will be for the next week or two, but I will try my best to have it posted by Sunday (at the latest) because I'm conscious of the fact that many of you have deadlines to meet. I don't want to make you late presenting a special gift, and I really do want to dive back into my quilting as soon as possible because it will be good therapy for me :) I will probably have to bump back the Quilt Along schedule by a week in order to compensate for the lost time, but I don't forsee any more delays along the way. If there are, I'll be sure to inform you ahead of time. And if this puts you behind on your personal schedule, feel free to work ahead and email me with questions - I will try to help you as much as possible :)
Over and Out,
