Google Domains

Without warning, even though I was set up to auto-renew my domain name was not renewed and there is little actual help out there on the Google Admin website.  I am hating them right now, nothing can make you feel like a moron faster than that website.

Anyway, I am starting over with followers again and with a new blogger address:

At least I don't have to move my blog! Silver lining, people!

Technology..... pfftt!!!

New Blog Address

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

 because Google domain sucks....grr!!

WIP Wednesday - Pixel Quilt Vanellope Von Schweetz

Fall is here!!  By far, hands down, fall is my favorite time of the year, like ever.  I love everything about it!  My daughter Dayna turned 8 yesterday, can't believe my baby is 8, geez!!  She is such a funny girl...for her b-day dinner she requested Chick-fil-a while riding through the car wash.  I have no idea where she got that from!  She also requested a surprise party, so I had to rearrange her party from this past weekend for 2 weeks from now to try to throw her off the scent.  I hope she loves it!  She has requested a Wreck It Ralph party, focusing on Vanellope and Sugar Rush.  Such an exciting idea!!  My girls always pick party themes that are not things you can easily find at Party City, fun but also challenging and a lot of work.

Another request Dayna had was for a new quilt, of course!  I found a needlepoint pattern on etsy that I just changed into a quilt pattern.  It took a LOT of figuring, but I was able to get the top done is less than a week.  One time saver was to use blocks instead of all squares.  It was MUCH easier that way and I don't think it loses anything as a pixel quilt.  You still have the pixel detail, just without the headache of all those tiny squares. it will look more pixelated once quilted.

Now the backing is ready for basting and I need to get this baby quilted!  It measures 60" x 80" and is the perfect size for her bed, can't wait to get it done :o)

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!
