End of an Almost Era?

 It's been almost ten years since I did my first blog post (August 9 2012). I am told that if you subscribe to Moosebay Muses by email, the Feedburner platform is going away and you won't receive the latest post in your mailbox after June. I've made the difficult decision to stop blogging and not make the move to a new platform. I want to thank everyone that has followed the blog--I thank you from the very bottom of my heart! It has been wonderful meeting and conversing with other quilting enthusiasts and making new friends. I am still posting (occasionally!) on Instagram and hope you will look me up there--I am breezypointquilter

These are the last of the photos on my camera--I haven't completed anything in the  months since my previous post way back in January, but have started several--lol! 


I'm still working on the log cabins and decided on this setting if I ever finish all of the blocks. 

I needed a hand sewing project and decided to start Di Ford's Route 66 quilt. All of the rosettes are completed and the background hexie fabric has been prepped. The floral on the left will be my border, and the blue on the right is for the fussy cut diamonds that will create a path around rosettes. 


You know how addicted I am to a sew along. I tried to stay true to my vow not to do anymore of them, but caved and started Barbara Brackman's Ladies Aid  block of the month. I've also started a primitive stitching project, but you will have to join me at Instagram to see those  photos. 

Take care and love to all! Karen

  2. I have contemplated the same idea. Ten years is a long time to blog and it's good to weigh the pros and cons. I will follow you on IG! Your projects are lovely. (I too have succumbed to Ladies Aid, lol.)

  3. I may need to buckle down and get myself an IG account. I have enjoyed your posts and have bookmarked a few of your pages to try the block/quilting pattern myself. Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. I am very sad to see you go but I understand. I will try to follow you on IG but I'm not very good with FB so I figure I'll be the same with IG. I will post the directive on how to have your Feedburner emailers receive your post through your blogger directly. I am procrastinating on the one and I really shouldn't. Okay, I'll work on it tonight. Take care. Keep stitching. ;^)

  9. Karen, I will support your decision and wish you the very best that life and creativity can offer. But at the same time I hope you end up taking a break and come back to blogging. You are so creative and have so much creativity and kindness to share. I hope you don't let Google's decision to kill Feedburner (a popular free tool to support email feeds of blog posts to followers). Many are switching from Feedburner to free Follow.IT and it appears to be a good free solution. I also have you listed on My Creative Blog List (http://mycreativebloglist.blogspot.com/), which I think many also use to follow a variety of blogs. Plus there are so many other sources (e.g. BlogLuvin, etc.). Again, while I respect your decision to stop blogging, I just simply want to say I hope it is a matter where taking a break would be good and then you would consider coming back to share. Again, you do such a great job sharing creative inspiration and kindness. You will be missed dearly, but I do so wish you all the happiness life can offer.

Enjoy your stitching and thanks for 10 years of fun!

  13. It was a grand run here :-) I have fallen off the blogging habit but haven't chosen to delete it yet. Too many distractions for me the past year and I haven't sewn since last fall. Then my sister was ill and I was her primary caretaker. She passed recently so eventually I may try to quilt to try and get myself back to life.
    I'll being seeing you on IG :-) I'm luckypup_quilter.

  14. I've so enjoyed following your blog but I understand how things change. I'll be checking out your projects on IG so, you won't be far.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I hope us bloggers won't have to do anything to continue posting... that's way beyond my pay grade!
    I completely understand and am sorry that you're moving on to other platforms!
    Take care! And keep quilting!!

  16. I just signed up to follow you on instagram. I'm not as active there, but do post from time to time.
    I am sad to hear you are leaving the blogging world and thank you for all the contributions you made to the Slow Sunday Stitching link ups over the years. Happy Quilting!

  17. I'm so sorry to hear that you're giving up blogging. The discontinuance of feedburner isn't the end for blogging because there are other ways to follow. I always read posts in feedly and have never had posts emailed to me, and I'm sure there are many others like me. I don't have an IG account and am not sure I want to add one more social media account.
    Anyway, I wish you all the best. I've enjoyed your blog, your posts, and your creativity, Karen.

  21. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647 blog: spiritualherbal.blogspot.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS

    Has anyone here heard about blank ATM card? An ATM card that allows you to withdraw cash from any Atm machine in the world. No name required, no address required and no bank account required. The Atm card is already programmed to dispense cash from any Atm machine worldwide. I heard about this Atm card online but at first i didn't pay attention to it because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got the card from guarantee Atm card vendor. We both went to the ATM machine center and confirmed it really works, without delay i gave it a go. Ever since then I’ve been withdrawing $1,500 to $5000 daily from the blank ATM card & this card has really changed my life financially. I just bought an expensive car and am planning to get a house.

  27. Hello Viewers. Life has been so miserable after my Husband broke up with me 2 year ago. I never thought he could hurt me just like that then I realized how much I loved him. When he ended our relationship, I had to look for options to make sure I got him back to myself because I wasn't living fine anymore. I was directed to a Babalawo known as @spell_caster_for_live, by a family friend who claimed he helped her with the Court case, and protection in her work to go higher than others. Then I contacted Babalawo and I was surprised and amazed when my Husband came back to me with his knees on the floor pleading to me for forgiveness to take him back as my lover. I thought I was dreaming because all this happened just within 48 hours and it happened as the spell caster said. For that wonderful encounter with this man, I made a decision on my path that I will let the world know about @spell_caster_for_live, for he's able and capable to solve any problems.

  28. I never use to believe in spell casting until i met Lord Zuma a powerful spell caster who helped me to be a happy person again. My name is Rose Marco and i reside in USA. After 4 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids. I felt like my life was about to end and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a Great spell caster called Lord Zuma which i met online on one faithful day when I was browsing through the internet, i came across a lot of testimonies about this particular Great spell caster how he has helped so many people. he has helped people to bring back their Ex lover, some testified that he restores womb, cure cancer and other sickness, and so on. I also came across a testimony, it was about a woman called Sandra, she testified about how his spell made her to be pregnant after so many years of bareness and at the end of her testimony she dropped Lord Zuma's email address. After reading all these, i decided to give it a try and i contacted him and explained my problem to him and he assured me that in less than 48 hours, my husband will call me and beg for forgiveness but i thought it will not work. When he had finished casting the spell, the next day my husband called me and he was begging for forgiveness just as Lord Zuma said. This is not brain washing and after the spell has been cast, i realized that my husband love me like never before and the spell caster opened him up to know how much i love him and how much love we need to share. We are even happier now than before. Lord Zuma is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and a genuine spell caster to solve all your problems contact Lord Zuma now on spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or just visit https://spiritualherbal.blogspot.com and see so many he has helped that are testifying about his good work. He will help you solve all your problems. Once again thank you Lord Zuma for your good deeds. His whatsapp number +1 506 800 1647
