Kim Diehl Blogs for HG

Hi, again, everyone ~

You may have noticed as you take your first glance at my blog entry below, that it is in teeny tiny print! This is because I am only very SLOWLY joining the modern world, and I do not offer an ongoing blog. With this in mind, the very kind people at Henry Glass invited me to forward my post to them to share with you so that I could still join in the fun. If you don't have eyes like a hawk or Superman's x-ray vision, you can ditch your reading glasses and just click your mouse once on each page - like MAGIC, they will enlarge to a size that is easy to read!

Thanks for hanging with me through a couple of little hiccups as I tackle this new blog stuff!

Kim ~

Kim,

Is there something wrong with the web site that I can't get to the pattern page.

Thanks,
Rita

Wendy said...

This is such a cute project. Thanks!

butrfly2200 said...

Cute project. I too was not able to open the pattern page when I clicked. But I scrolled down and there it was.

marcella said...

Thanks for both the adorable project and mulled cider recipe!

Michelle said...

Rita, Click on the "pages" one at a time. They will enlarge and you can print or save them from there.

Martina said...

Thank you for the cute pattern. It will make a perfect gift, and seems simple enough that I could make it in time for this Christmas. I look forward to making the Christmas hanger soon.

~Kathleen said...

Kim, What a great Henry Glass Parade this has been! I love your project so much. Thank you for participating and it would be great to someday be able to meet you and get your books.

Thanks for the project, recipe, and giveaway!

Linda said...

Holy wow - I really had to work to get that pattern, but I really wanted it since I have the perfect place for it.
Thank you so much Kim

butrfly2200 said...

I have already posted about the hop but I would like to comment on your posting font. I could not read the entire entry till I figured out how to enlarge it. And it was not just a matter of increasing the font which is how I thought it should work. Finally I just clicked over the page and it became bigger. Was a little frustrating though. The side bar was a good size to read but not the entry of the 7th and that included the pattern.
Just a thought for your next posting. It would help older eyes and level of frustration if it was bigger to start with. Older eyes don't always have alot of computer experience. Thanks for this hop. It was great going from site to site. What a wonderful amount of great patterns. Now to find some time to do some of them.
Thanks again

This project is adorable! Thank you very much for sharing it!

Marija said...

Thank you for a wonderful project and recipe! I also enjoyed your class, a bit more than a year ago (in Amherst Museum Quilters Guild) and LOVE my applique wall hanging I made! Happy holidays!

Mary said...

Such a fun project and mulled cider, yummmm! Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us. I also loved the centerpiece idea and know I will do that!

free indeed said...

My problem has been that the post was so small in print. I did the 'trick' to make the page larger, but lost clarity so that it was very hard for me to read...I hope I understood the word properly.
I did like the project hanger...I really need to make myself a few hand made things for my own home...I tend to make for everyone else as gifts and neglect myself! :)
THanks

Cyndi said...

That is just absolutely the cutest little hanging....I love it and am going to make one TODAY! Thanks so much for the awesome pattern. And thanks for the fabulous give away, too. I'm really wanting me some of those "sparkly red toes"! :o)

Wishing you and your family a wonderful and blessed Holiday Season, and a New Year filled with love, joy, and peace!

XOXO,

Cyndi

valerie b said...

Love the christmas hanger and all of your quilts!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Kim, I love your owning up to being a slacker...I'm a slacker every year for some unknown reason, but everything always works out in the end. This year however, we are in the midst of a remodel, well, a 'face-lift' in the living room and bathroom upstairs so everything is piled er...stacked neatly (yeah, sure) in the family room downstairs but I told hubby that my new sewing room was off limits (60 years old and finally got my own sewing space) Hey! a girls gotta draw the line somewhere right. I've done a little holiday wall hanging for my sewing room but other than that it will be my smallest Nativity on the end table in the side of the family room where we can still sit down and my decorating will be done, LOL. The remodel will not be completed until the end of January or first of February but next year I hope to really decorate upstairs. I don't have any Christmas quilts so that is a must do this next year. I am going to try to get your adorable Holiday Hanger made to put on my sewing room doorknob...I absolutely love it, thanks so much. I'm having trouble getting the pattern but that to will work out, I just know it!!! The yummy recipe will also have to wait until the mess is gone but nothing says I have to wait till next Christmas to try it, right? Thanks for a chance to have some of the wonderful quilty treasures you will include in your gift. OH, and I adore your twinkly toes...very festive!!! OH, and can you tell me the name of the beautiful snowball style Christmas quilt shown in the third page of your post? I drooled all over my keyboard when I saw it! Hugs... and Good Luck to Everyone in this fun adventure Henry Glass & Co. has let us enjoy. Merry Christmas!!!

Nicki Lundeen said...

Hi, Kim: I have loved checking the blog hop each day. This has been a great activity. I put 'Simple Graces' on my wish list at my favourite quilt shop. Your books are wonderful, cover to cover. I have loved each one. Thank you for the hanger pattern. This is a snow day for my school area so an enticing project to spend my afternoon on is a perfect fit today. Merry Christmas from Ontario, Canada

First of all I'd like to thank the Henry Glass Fabrics blog-group for helping me to read Kim Diehl's blog via their own blog (print was small, so I squinted my eyes, pointed my finger along each line and, voila...I read Kim's blog :)
Kim, I have made the snowman tabletopper and I'm now making the yo-yo's for the Easter Bunny tablerunner. All your holiday cheer has been very inspiring, and I'm making your door hanger for a gift (plus 1 for me :).
I'd love to win your newest book and all your wonderful gifts.
Blessing to you & yours this Holiday Season, Jackie in NC

Oh dear, I'm terribly ashamed of my toes. The polish is all grown out, cause who sees my toes in the winter? When I get home I'm going to "borrow" the red polish from my daughter and get me some twinkling toes! Thanks for the ideas. I really do like the Christmas tree project. It looks like a lot of fun.

Kim, Thanks for the wonderful project....great Holiday hanger. I hear you are new to blogging. I've been blogging about six months. I'm still struggling when it comes to posting pictures...new buttons and even thinking of something to talk about that people would be interested in. I'm not going to give up....I have a post in the works and will be posting something today but most likely without pictures. I'm not good at photography either. Love the HG Holiday parade...excellent blog hop!!! sEw glad you joined the parade.
