Sunflower Blog Background

I really enjoy creating my own blog backgrounds.  I change them for the holidays and seasons and I like to share them with everyone.  So for today, here's my latest creation:

Free Sunflower Blog Background for Blogger/Blogspot 2 column blogs
If you like it and you have a blogger/blogspot 2 column blog, you're welcome to use it.  Here is the code:

<style type="text/css">
body { background-image : url(https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1769/41576676560_4e46eb4b7e_o.jpg); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat;  background-attachment : fixed; }
</style>

<script type="text/javascript">
var div = document.createElement('div');
div.setAttribute('style',"position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 30px; z-index: 50; width: 150px; height: 45px;");
div.innerHTML = '<a target="_blank" href=" "></a>';
document.getElementsByTagName('body').item(0).appendChild(div);
</script>

Copy and paste it into your HTML gadget and enjoy!

In other news, I have the 2019 Crazy Quilt Calendar complete, uploaded and ready to release on October 1st!  Thank you to my talented contributors.  They did a fantastic job on their blocks and sent everything to me in plenty of time to have the calendar all put together and ready well in advance!

Also, I'm pleased to announce that the Autumn 2018 issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine will be released on August 1st as scheduled!!!!  Thank you to my contributors and Mary Anne and Kathy!!!

I will be putting the PDF file together today and uploading it.

I intend to start on the Winter issue of the magazine next week.  With everything that's been going on in my life (it's been a nightmare!), I want to have that issue done well in advance too.

So......I'm now accepting submissions for the Winter issue.  If you would like to share photos, articles, tutorials or if you would like to purchase ad space, please drop me an email!!!

I'm looking for Winter and Christmas designs, crazy quilt dolls, bears...anything 3 dimensional, ornaments, snowmen, gingerbread men, santas....typical Winter themes.  

I'm looking forward to your submissions!!!!

Happy 4th Of July

Just wanted to touch base with everyone here since I'm starting to get things back in order, at least for the time being.

Basically, I was forced to take my 4 kitties and relocate back in mid May.  Without going into any detail, I finally have my computer set up again and I've been working feverishly to get the Autumn issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine put together so that it can be released on it's scheduled date, August 1st.  Thanks to Kathy and Mary Anne, I think we'll be able to do it!!!  It's important to me that everyone gets to enjoy it on it!!!

Also, the 2019 Crazy Quilt Calendar is almost complete.  I'm waiting on 3 more designs and then I can finish putting it all together.  We have 13 incredibly gifted artists who generously contributed their time and talent for this project.  I can't thank them enough!  I'm looking at an October 1st release date for the calendar.

For my Never Ending Sampler stitchers, I will get to doing some new bands as soon as I have the Autumn issue of CQQ completed. 

I've been doing a little crazy quilting and little cross stitch.  I will post photos of my stitching very soon.  I'm living out of boxes and have to find my camera.

Hang in here with me ladies!  My life has been out of balance for many years.  It will start coming back together, slowly but surely.  When it does, I'll have way more time than I ever had before, to focus on fun stuff here!!!!

Hugs to all and Happy July 4th!
