Block 5 Will Not Be Launched On The 15th

Hello Everyone,

Mr. Toshiba, my photocopier died today. Without warning, he just snapped and that’s it, all my day’s plans over. My bright, shiny scanner, PDF converter and printer as well as old fashioned photocopier. The machine designed to streamline all my electronic tools into one smooth unit has stopped working.
This means that this month’s BOM Block 5 of Hearts Desire will not be launched tomorrow, the 15th of June. My DH has already called the technician who will look in on the machine tomorrow. I expect to launch the block on Thursday the 16th or Friday 17th of June, by the end of this week.

I know this is frustrating, but it really can’t be helped. I apologize for any inconvenience, but I simply won’t release patterns unless I am 100% certain that they are spot on when they reach you.

I convert my original patterns firstly by scanning them in, then I PDF convert them. Then, once I have created the pattern into one file and added the instructions, I ‘launch’ it online via my website and print of off from the online source. It’s a triple checking process against my originals. Even 5mm out is unacceptable and cannot be tolerated in a pattern.

Hopefully tomorrow will prove a better day!


  1. I have to admit - at first I thought you were talking about a person! LOL...Only for a mooment. Please don't feel bad for a delay, I am sure I speak for many of your loyal followers that we are so happy to get these blocks and we are so grateful for your generosity in sharing them!

  2. Do not - I repeat, do NOT - apologize for being "late" releasing a free pattern! We are all so lucky that you share your work with us that we'll take it whenever it's offered, gratefully and gladly. Really.

  3. Esther, we will be waiting for these beautiful blocks as long as it takes. thanks to you for being so generous, its not like we have nothing to do. as a matter of fact i am thinking of starting another one. DottyinSC

  4. Ahhh ... technology--so wonderful when it works, so frustrating when it doesn't. I don't know anyone who hasn't been there and wouldn't understand.

    Please don't stress about it.

    Ps. At first, I thought you were talking about a real live photographer, too.

  5. Don't worry, Esther. Take your time. We will all be here when you get it all sorted.

    On the positive side: it gives us more time to get caught up! ;o)

    Good luck with Mr. Toshiba. I hope 'he' feels better soon.

  6. Yes, please do not worry!
    We will all be waiting for your wonderful design, LOL
    I know I will anyway!
    Somedays, things go right,
    somedays, things go wrong.
    Tomorrow will be a better day!
    Take care, Leslie

  7. Never mind I am with the others that we are so lucky to have access to your fabulous patterns. thank you again Angela
