Haunted Computer

Ever since the server came back on last night, strange things have been happening.  Some files are missing, desktop images are gone ..... I don't know.  I was able to log on to Blogger this morning after quite a bit of fussing with it.  I'll call my computer guys today and see if someone can come out Saturday.  The cable box on the TV in the living room is out, too.  At least the one in my bedroom is still on.  I hardly ever turn TVs on, but I want them to work when I do.  Everything in this house is going to pot - including me! 

Anyway, here are the two stupid pictures I wanted to post last night.  Nothing amazing but progress is being made in the sewing room.

Hand stitching the bindings, then these are done!

And the Apple Jelly Jam from the Jelly Jam pattern at Fat Quarter Shop.  Those of you who have made it, don't look too closely!  I managed to flip a couple of the pieces but it's still cute and bright and cheerful.

After making this 36 x 36 quilt, I've decided that all the baby quilts I make from now on are going to be this size.  Whenever I talk to an expectant mother about quilts, they always give me color combinations of their nursery that, frankly, puzzle me.  I've fretted more times over finding fabric that might match their scheme.  From now on I'm going to make what I'm going to term "travel quilts."  These can be used in the car or stroller, and it doesn't matter what color they are.  And I think this is the perfect size for that use.

If you click on these pictures and they're gigantic, sorry.  Picasa won't let me sign in this morning, either, to size them.  So to paraphrase that much over-used phrase, they are what they are.

I have to go visit my friends at the hospital this morning for blood work.  It's bad when I walk in this gigantic facility and everyone knows me.  Means I've been there way too often!  Hey, maybe I can get my own reserved parking space!  :)

I'm sorry you're still having challenges with blogger.

The baby quilts are adorable, Vicky. I quit trying to match a nursery - it's just easier to make 'travel' quilts. They are used and loved. LOL

Love the baby quilt! Its so bright and cheery, any baby should love it! I don't do the matchy thing either, you get what I make and if they are picky, they get something purchased or a gift card. LOL Good luck with your TV's!
