FFF and BOM files updated!

It’s taken me most of last evening and another two hours this morning to complete the transfer of all the FFF files as well as my Raggedy & Friends BOM to Google Docs…and it wasn’t easy.  My computer skills are not the best and it was a ‘learn-as-you-go’ experience for me. 

How the February 2010 FFF post appeared this morning is a mystery to me but has now been deleted and I believe that everything is now fixed, moved, readily accessible and tickety-poo!

Once again, thanks to all of you who suggested that I use Google Docs.  It is much easier to use and appears to be very user friendly.

For those of you who might be new here, I offered a free BOM of my Raggedy & Friends quilt back in 2010.

If you would like to make this quilt, the PDF files are available for you to download by clicking on the links on the right sidebar of my blog…and they’re FREE!  They are listed under Links to Raggedy & Friends BOM Patterns”.

This morning I went for a tour around the gardens…care to join me?

Tulips…is there any other flower that represents spring better?

An early blooming azalea…a real splash of color in a spring garden.

This sign says it all…’welcome’ to our home.

I love situating plants with different colors and textures next to one another.

“Supertunias”…a new variety this year…and they require no dead-heading!

DSCN1039

Bleeding hearts…another of my favorites.

Our three apple trees are in full blossom.  Ah spring!

I hope you all have a great day.  If you’re looking for me, I’ll be out playing in the dirt!

What a wonderful way for e to start my day...with a tour if your gardens! Can't believe how there is so much in bloom there...not quite the same here yet. Congratulations for completing the transfer if your files. A huge job, but you did it! You are now a techie...an expert in google docs! And that Raggedy Quilt is wonderful! Have a great day in your garden!

Thank you so much for sharing the designs for the Raggedy Ann quilt, I make charity quilts for our local Pregancy Crisis Center, would it be ok if I did the designs for a baby quilt to donate??

Thank you for the wonderful garden tour. We are starting to cool down now 'downunder'but because I live in Queensland near the coast,we really only get Summer(wet season) & Winter(dry season). So I enjoyed seeing all your spring flowers.

I love petunias and plant them every year, but I HATE deadheading them!! This variety is nice to know about...will definitely look for them.

I hope to get into my garden this week. Spent the weekend with good friends quilting at a retreat. The perfect Mothers Day.

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

Hello Kaaren! What a sweet quilt...love all the colours and patterns. Your garden is looking wonderful...I love tulips too but ours have been gone for well over a month. I enjoyed seeing yours! I hope you had fun playing in the dirt...I watered the gardens and will finish up tomorrow along with some weeding. Have a wonderful week! Maura :)

Beautiful pictures from your garden! The Raggedy & Friends quilt is my favourite, and it was fun to make. Thank you again for the pattern.

barcord said...

You did really well moving your files. I know how much time that takes...and takes you away from playing with fabric...... Your garden looks lovely. Good to see a wee fabric plant in there :-)

Just a FYI I can get to all the FFF's except 'Wool Crazy Christmas' & 'Colonial Christmas Sampler'. It says I don't have permission to access. Just thought you would like to know.
