In preparation for a new and improved blog, I have a couple of questions for you. You don’t HAVE to answer if you don’t want to but if it matters at all to you, will you please let me know what you think:
- Twitter – I’ve been trying it and I just don’t get it. I can’t imagine that anyone cares what I’m doing every minute of every day. I can see how it’s good for some people but I think between this blog and facebook, everyone probably knows as much about me as you care to know (and too much probably!). So, I’m thinking I’m going to do away with Twitter. No one cares, right? What? You’ve never been to my Twitter page? That’s what I thought!
- The free patterns – I’m trying to make it easy though it seems that when I try to make things easier, I usually send a few people over the edge. When we do free patterns on the blog – either Quilt for an Hour, Quilt-Along or whatever . . I sometimes do them in pieces on the blog. But, once we’re finished, in the future, I’ll offer it as a .pdf via the Patterns for Free page. I have re-organized that page. Will you please take a look and tell me what you think? Now when you go there, you see a picture of the quilt, most are the EQ drawing. You click on the picture and that takes you to a page that has a little more info about the quilt and if you click on that picture, it takes you to a .pdf page. Is it easy to find what you’re looking for? Does the organization make sense?
What I would like for you all to do is if you’re going to share the link to a free pattern, please link to the Patterns for Free page, not specifically to the pattern. For instance, if you wanted to share the Peaches and Dreams quilt with your online group, would you please use this link – Patterns for Free. If ever I change web hosting companies or make changes in the pattern, the file may not get renamed what it was before so if you wanted to share the Peaches and Dreams pattern, you could say . . the Peaches and Dreams pattern is available here: http://www.patchworktimes.com/patterns/ If you say . . the Peaches and Dreams pattern is available here: http://www.patchworktimes.com/Patterns/PeachesDreams.pdf then they’re going only to that pattern and not seeing anything else that I have for free and in the unlikely event I’ve changed the file name, they’re not going to get there. In the process of re-doing this page, I did change some of the file names from the old names so anyone linked up with the old name is not going to get to the pattern.
