I Support Quilting Jetgirl

I did a lot of planning over the last few months. I really wanted to upgrade my blog from to so that it can continue to grow and create a vibrant online quilting community by being more functional for hosting link parties, etc. Why would I migrate? Well, one of the current limitations that I am bumping up against is the lack of javascript support. Did you notice how awkward it is for me to host a link party? Because does not support javascript, I cannot embed link party scripts into my blog posts. After looking into the expenses I would incur to migrate my site (with all my content, data, and web traffic, I cannot move to a low level or basic service), I just could not justify the expense of migration, though. So with a bit of fear in my heart, on Monday I began asking you to consider supporting Quilting Jetgirl through the crowd funding platform Patreon. There are fun rewards available for your support, like access to a unique Quilting Jetgirl quilt pattern a year before it releases to the general public! Thank you so much for your consideration and to those who have already pledged their support.

  2. Good Morning Yvonne! Congrats to the winners of your great prizes! After your post about setting goals and reading a few other posts on the topic, I have actually set a couple of goals for myself. This is a huge step for me because of my complications. Yet, I always try and find ways to overcome those obstacles or at least work with them. So hopefully these few goals will be achieved and a step in the right direction. I understand, to a degree, of what you are trying to accomplish and what it is like to face the difficulties of facing the brick walls that it is so hard to break down, climb over, go under or around in any direction. Continue to find ways Yvonne; you are a brilliant individual and that is one of the main reasons I love reading your blog. You are strong, independent, courageous, determined, artistic, and so much more!

    Thank you and have a wonderful creative day!
