Thank you so much for following me to my new blog home! I truly appreciate it.
I decided to move over to WordPress, using my own domain, for several reasons. Chief among them being that I will be able to create a more professional website here. On Blogspot, I could not list all of my patterns nor could I list any of my pattern descriptions. Here I can dedicate a page to each pattern as I have done with Evie. Additionally, I can create a card gallery and eventually a quilt gallery.
I want a more professional look and to move away from my free blog was so that I will be taken seriously by local yarn stores whom I would like to wholesale my patterns to and to create a good first impression when (I refuse to say If) I publish my first design. The Old Wives Tales states that you only get one chance to make a good first impression. I think this site will better allow me to get off on the right foot.
If you follow me on Bloglines, please update my RSS feed to http://knittedgems.com/feed/. I will try to remember to leave my new address when I comment on your blog, but I just know I’ll goof once or twice.
Enough business jabber, I want to show you the cards I made last night.
I took the time to measure each layer of cardstock and position each one that they were all centered. Only to get all the way done and realize I had stacked them on the wrong side of the card. I tried to just pull the green paper off, but I had stuck it on there pretty good. It wasn’t coming off. So, I cut around it.
I don’t think you can tell. Hopefully, nobody will look too closely.
Then, I stuck a picture of Jake on a card to send to my sister. I hadn’t realized that she never saw a picture of him until I was chatting with her two days ago. Shame on me!
Lastly, I offer you a pic of my favorite card.
I had ordered some appliques for an Americana quilt that I plan to start soon (as soon as I finish sewing up a pair of comfy pants for myself). I had a few extras and had heard that iron-on appliques will stick to just about anything. The rumors are true. They will stick to just about anything, cardstock included!

Very business like. Bravo. I think the new site should serve you well!!
Cute picture of Jake!
Wow this does look soooooooo pro!
Nice going and good luck.
I’m impressed! Very nice looking and clean. Your cards are great, too! Like I’ve said before: “What DON’T you do?” SO creative! :) I have to bookmark you over here now.
Hmmm, wondered why you moved…..
About the Easter mess….the rule here is, if you cook, you don’t have to clean up also.
Welcome to your new home! it looks very professional – I hope you’ll be very happy here! Jo x
Congratulations! It looks very nice!
Good luck with the new location. Word Press plugins can be addictive, so watch out!
That yarn is going to make an incredibly beautiful stole!!!! Also a delight to knit with, I’m sure. I have some lace things I’ve never blocked either – for those same reasons! Somethings require blocking and others look nicer without. So odd.
