M I A Rejuvenate

      Wow, many moons ago was the first step to upgrade myself and Quiltnasium. With no chance of getting together in retreats and classes, because of you know what, we had to give ourselves a kick in the butt.

A plaque I found years ago.

New web host, new website, new quilt along programs, new videos for quilt alongs. The video learning curve has been straight up and I swear that there is no excuse for senior's moments because so many more brain circuits have been created. 

   Paper Sky free block 8 was just posted. The video is on fb page quiltnasium quilt along by kat. Only one more block and the finishing remain.

   For those of you in the Gypsy Wife program, the next blocks will be sent to you next week. It's never too late to join Gypsy Wife quilt along. You must have a pattern. If the pattern is purchased from Quiltnasium the videos are included. Otherwise you can join for $20. 

   Do making 3"squares float your boat? Because we had nothing better to do, or we lost some marbles, we are in the process of resizing the 150 Canadian blocks down to 3" from 6". This time only the block instructions will be available with video. The quilt is going to run in the colour gamut of lime green on a gray background.

Meow to everyone. It's been a very long slug with the human at home. It's been almost one year of long hard retraining. There are still times when I have to jump up on her, on the computer desk or on the sewing table to get into her face and meow at the top of my lungs so she will STOP everything and either feed me or let me out. What a chore at times! 

I know I'm still lovable because after all I'm now Sweet Sixteen and how can I be missed.

150 Quilt Rerun Block 1

    Block 1 and the explanation for 150 Rerun cutting instructions are on the group page. To join you must have or can purchase the CD.

I still haven't figured out zoom through OBS yet so it is just a recording. Any questions, then email us, ask @ quiltnasium dot com.

Winter is staying at in the mountains so far and that it is where it should be.

MIA Zoom

   So this was all weekend in the far south of Alberta, Lethbridge.

And all this weekend not so far south in Alberta, Calgary. Ol' Father Winter let us know he was coming on winds of 85kg/hr = 55mph. Almost all the leaves are gone and the lake has a thin ice covering. As my dad used to say, 'Better put rocks in your pockets.'

   Sometimes, it is bad getting old. Sometimes, it is hard to believe I worked in IT and knew all the latest technology. When the phones became smart phones, I didn't care and didn't want one. Since getting back into business in early 2000s, I've been playing catchup ever since. The ol' brain is slower and sometimes it likes to run backwards. 

But thanks to a young whippersnapper teaching an old fuddy duddy, we've finally kind of got the hang of 3 cameras, OBS and Zoom. So, for those of you that are registered on facebook with your pattern for the 150 Canadian quilt rerun we will be taking the first kick at a zoom meeting for cutting out the background and Block 1. 

For those of you waiting for the gypsy wife program to start it will happen in a couple of weeks.

We are almost finished with the roll over of to another webhost and updating the blog look and getting the email operating again.

I'd like to thank all you for being extremely patient in waiting for these programs to happen.
