Escaping The Cold

My apologies for not having posted much the last few weeks.  With Mrs. Miller's Apprentice and the Circa 1880 Club both launching simultaneously, it's been crazy here.  

I also confess that my family took a cruise vacation to celebrate Nicki's graduation from nursing school and to celebrate her birthday.  We chose absolutely the best week to be gone from Chicago, escaping the bitter Polar Vortex cold!!   We basked in sunshine and 80 degree warmth the whole week.  It was a perfect break from winter!  

Besides filling orders and answering emails about Mrs. Miller and The Circa Club, my 2020 block of the month is now in the hands of Marcus Fabrics.  I'm presently working on designing new fabric additions to the Circa Basics group, which is very exciting, writing the manuscript for my second book with Martingale, and several new patterns I want to release at spring market.  Never a dull moment, but I rather like it that way!  

I'm still taking an hour everyday to stitch something.  Often Circa blocks to trade with my friends, and a new quilt for a new pattern.  It's a happy hour of stitching, for sure!  

A little piece of business....if I may.

Some of you have been messaging me through Facebook.  I know it may be an easy way to contact me, but I'm asking that you please, please email me instead.  I'll list my email address at the end of this post.  Often the questions are long and would involve me posting links which is not easy to do on Facebook with a phone in my hand.  The larger problem is I don't look at Facebook all that often, am not really familiar with all the different ways there are to send messages and often can't locate where the message is coming from to reply.  Very frustrating for me.  So I am kindly asking that you email me with all your questions, please.  I am very happy to answer you, it's just easier.

Another little frustration are the wonderful quilters who post comments on my blog and ask questions, only to see that your comments come via no-reply blogger.  I have no way of emailing you back.  For some reason I don't understand, I can't write replies on my own blog.  They just don't post!  So, I can't answer you that way either.  

If you don't have a registered Google ID listing your email address, please email your comments directly to me!!  Please!!  My contact info is listed on the blog sidebar, on my website and every pattern I print.

A shout out to SiamKitty.....you have asked many questions and left lovely comments that I am unable to respond to.  Please send me an email....I have the info you are asking for!!  Would love to hear from you!!

I do read every comment that is posted to my blog and deeply appreciate each and every one.   I wish I could easily respond to your comments but just haven't figured out what is wrong that I can't leave a comment.  If you know the answer, please email me!!  

So...that concludes my little business request.  I hope you understand that emailing is much easier (and private) than Facebook Messenger.  

I read email everyday - Pam@HeartspunQuilts.com

Here's hoping your cozy at home, warm and comfy, with something lovely to stitch.  

Be well......


  1. You all look so warm and happy! Your timing was impeccable!
    You are such a busy lady. Can't wait to see the new things you are dreaming up for us. :)

  2. Thanks for this great post, i find it very interesting and very well thought out and put together. I look forward to reading your work in the future. Fun things to do in Calgary, AB

  3. Oh Pam, I am so happy to hear that you have the same feeling about Facebook as I do. In fact, I know I was born in the wrong century because I can't even figure out Blogger! Enjoy that warm weather!!
