I'm fixed!!!


Matt came and installed my fixed computer tonight, and also fixed the camera card/printer problem. So I'm all ready to start taking pix and, hopefully, have a much more interesting blog!

A couple of months ago, Jace and Sally gifted me with a quilt hanger that Jace made. The hanger along with a gorgeous matching cabinet will be hung this weekend, and I'll post pictures of them. But the night the box arrived, I heard Daisy making funny sounds. I discovered her with her head stuck in the batting that they used to wrap the ends of the hanger. Silly dog!

I just realized, doggone it, that I'm fixed just in time for the start of the May no-buy month! Whose bright idea was this, anyway? I've been reading a really thick book for the third time ("And Ladies of the Club") and I plan on reading in the middle of the night instead of coming downstairs and poking on the order buttons! That's my plan anyway! And when I'm done with that book, I'm going to reread "Winds of War" and "War and Remembrance." That's another thousand pages or so! (vbg)

Along with May being a no-buy month, it's also a sewing month for me. I've got the giterdun cut out and ready to work on this weekend, and another shop sample cut out for the quilt shop. When these two quilts are done, I'm going to quilt just for me for the rest of the year!!! Yeah, yeah, I know. I always say that. But I mean it this time!

I've been pondering an Applique Club for the quilt shop. I don't know. It might be fun to have a set day or night a month to meet up and sit and stitch. I'm still pondering that ...
Gratitudes:
~ Special thanks to my hero, Matt!!
~ Peaceful sleep tonight!
~ Checking in with friends I've missed for the past week!
~ Getting the A/C gassed up in my car just in time for the hot weather!

Welcome back! I've been missing you.

I think you need to join the Applique Club at the quilt store.

Laurene Sinema had Baltimore Masters in the morning and Applique Lovers in the afternoon, first Sat. every month. Oh, how I loved those first Saturdays! Laurene died, the shop sold, I left Phoenix, but I think those Saturdays are still going on!

If you have design capability, it's always fun to have your own designs for the classes. Laurene used to try all her new designs on us and then put them in patterns.

Welcome back! And you have your camera connection working too! Now we get to see all the cool stuff you'll be working in this month. :-)

Stay away from those online shops! We can do this!!!!

Oh my goodness, Daisy is a hoot. At first when I saw the picture I thought something had happened to her and this was something the vet put on, then read on and saw she did this...what a riot.Glad you got your camera up and running again.

I will teach a friend how to do string quilts tomorrow. Should eat some fabric - I am ready for No Buy :-)

So glad you are back up and running - we've missed hearing from you. What a precious fun picture of Daisy!

OMG, I thought you'd been sequestered on a jury! Whatever happened with that? Did they toss you out the door and down the courthouse steps? See, this jury duty thing is on my mind, since I have one of those notices sitting on my kitchen table, reminding me daily that my turn comes up the week after next . . . .

That Daisy Dog can get into more predicaments!

Glad your computer is back.

Love that dog! So cute. I fully understand about poking the order buttons in the middle of the night - it builds up and up and then one night I just have to do it. Nearly all my other vices have had to be cut out, so I don't worry 'too' much...
