Good Afternoon, Quilters!
It’s been a busy month as Faye, Nora and I put the final labels on all the photos, motifs, and posts for the BIG MOVE!
Our goal is to make Lori Kennedy Quilts THE BEST Machine Quilting Resource for motifs, supplies, inspiration and education. The BIG MOVE was necessary to create a site that is more user friendly.
But as anyone who has ever moved from one house to another knows…
MOVING IS CHALLENGING!
Moving a blog is a lot like moving cross country from one house to a bigger house, only in this case, EVERY item needs a label. You can’t just get away with crates marked “MISC”!
A BLOG STYLE FENDER BENDER
We started the move last week, but several of our boxes fell off the moving truck. Now we are half in our new location and half still at The Inbox Jaunt. Consequently, some functions are not working properly. For example, links from Pinterest are not working correctly right now. We have a service on the way–in the form of developers from Lifted Logic. We are in the queue, and the links should be fixed by early next week.
In the meantime, we are rearranging our “furniture” in our new house. It will take awhile to find the proper home for all our beautiful things.
The MOTIF ROOM
Our first priority is setting up the Motif categories so you can have easy and more organized access. You can choose motifs by category now. Ten motifs will load at a time, then you can load ten more. If you prefer, you can scroll the motifs from the top, “All” category. If you are looking for flowers and leaves, skip down…If you need an umbrella, look in “Illustrations”.
One thing to note, some of the photos do not match the name of the tutorial–this happens when we missed a label on a tutorial. We will work to correct those over time, but for now, the written description is more important than the photo.
One of our other priorities was to set up a shop with links to our favorite products. Part of learning to machine quilt is finding the right supplies. I am happy to share with you the materials that have been most helpful to me. The Shop will grow over time and I hope it will be a great resource to readers.
The ABOUT PAGE
There’s an all new “About” page…considered necessary in the blogosphere. It contains all of the relevant links, including several links to free Webinars, Podcasts, and projects.
EXCITED BUT IMPATIENT
We are very excited about our new home, and looking forward to the day when all of our “furniture” is arranged properly and we feel settled again. Once we find all the silverware, we’ll host a huge celebration–with giveaways and prizes!
Until then, I hope YOU like the new “digs”!
What about YOU?
Have YOU ever moved?
Was it exciting? Terrifying? Smooth? Bumpy?
We’d LOVE to hear!
YOUR Happy but Tired Bloggers,
Lori, Nora and Faye!
