Website Problems. Oh dear!

On Sunday during a routine maintenance the SewHappy.Me website crashed!

Website Crash

In the process of trying to restore it, it became clear that some of the data had been lost, in particular my recent posts and tutorials. Since then my data hosting company have been working hard to restore my backups, but have encountered a technical problem. It has proved very tricky and has taken longer than expected but they are still working on it to try and resolve the problem ASAP. They are optimistic that it can be restored. Phew!

This has never happened before and I have been very anxious as I have contemplated all the extra work it would involve to try and re-write all my lost files. In particular I was very conscious that we were in the middle of a fantastic Fabric Giveaway hosted by Secret Garden Quilting. But please bear with me and as soon as the website is back up and running again smoothly I will be updating the website with the Fabric Giveaway news.

My apologies if you have been concerned. Until now I have even been unable to get back into the admin pages to let you know. Fingers crossed.

Fingers crossed

Hopefully all will be back to normal very, very soon.


New Quilt Pattern – My Blue Heaven

Back in 2011, you may remember that I organised a Quiltalong on this blog and we made this heavenly quilt.

My Blue Heaven

The quilt is a sampler quilt made up with 12 different patchwork blocks in a selection of colourways coupled with appliqué blocks. And to make it a little more challenging than your run of the mill Sampler Quilt the blocks are all 6 inch blocks. It was great fun to sew and is a pretty impressive looking quilt. It also can be made in three different sizes.

Here are some of the blocks.


I actually made some lemon blocks too but haven’t got around to putting those ones together yet.

Blue & Lemon Blocks

For some time I have been meaning to write up all the patterns and instructions into a pattern for sale in my Pattern Shop as I know many of my more recent followers would have missed it.

Well once again ……..mission accomplished. You will now find the pattern in the Pattern Shop. I have named it My Blue Heaven.

However, it’s not all good news. It is still waiting to be quilted! So, I am not quite as virtuous as I may appear. But, little by little I am whittling away at the bucket list.
