WW #31

Posted on by .

A week or so ago, my site, as well as many others, were aggressively targeted by hackers. Well over a thousand attempts were made to crack my password and make me crazy with emails. Wordfence is a wonderful plugin and I highly recommend it. I have since learned my admin user name should never be seen, so I changed it. Thankfully, I believe I remain unhacked but for the life of me, can’t understand why someone wants to hack a quilty, not for profit website.

I purchased some designs from Urban Threads and got fancy on a leg of my new blue jeans.

It’s a little stiff and after washing, I have to iron it flat but it looks great! The next time I embroider denim, I’ll use a design a little less dense.

I had a huge pile of fabric strips in pink so I modified “Scrapitude” to utilize the sizes I had.

It’s taken several weeks, but the blocks are finished and now on the frame for some simple quilting.

My grandfather is having some heart trouble so my sister and cousin arranged a fund raiser to help him with a few expenses.

My sister is one of the talented teachers at Wine By Design in Rochester, Indiana.

I had never taken one of her classes so it was great fun to see what she does!

This is my nephew, Tyler, signing the table.

My anchor <3 I liked how it turned out. My friend Twila liked it more so I gave it to her!

Family time in my mom’s front yard. It was a beautiful fall day.

My scrapitude quilt on the frame, renamed pink rose garden. It’s a king sized quilt and will live on my bed this winter. Hubs likes it almost as much as I do!

I saw this meme on Facebook the other day. It’s been making me laugh since.

(I know the poor little monkey was probably very sick and I apologize if this offends you but I still can’t stop laughing.)

This is a closeup of the border. I’m not as happy with it as I thought I’d be, but it all counts as practice.

These were my roses to keep. I wear the one that’s unwrapped on my work badge.
