My girl, my girl...talkin about my girl....

......who somehow, someway managed to fix our computer!!!! Yeah, a big old thank you, and now it's working at warp speed for whatever reason. We started having trouble right after my last post. I would go visit a blog and post a comment and it would work for a few minutes and then freeze. Then send some emails and the same thing. But now we are back in business. And I am happy to report the zoo quilt is done and I sent it home with Katie. She was very happy with the way it turned out.....and that made me very happy!!

It has probably been just as well that the computer was down. My little binding business had a record week! I was starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by midweek when I kept getting more and more quilts from customers....but now have this pile completed with two more to do today and I will be caught up.....so let's just say not much sewing was happening in my neck of the woods!
I had a busy few days at work. Last Saturday when I was working I had a celebrity guest worker stop by ! She was drooling over my shoes! You can read all about her over here! Thought I would share a photo of our Tuesday morning gals having a rather raucous vote on which fabric to put on the back of Phoebe's quilt. Susan, who I work with on Tuesday (in the plaid shirt)had them all fired up!! We are very excited at work because Susan has been asked to teach at Road To California next year. Since I haven't gotten any quilting done I'll show Susan's braid quilt that she just got bound...it's a beauty, and here's a couple pictures of quilts from the pretty pile of binding quilts that are going to be auctioned off at a school. They are so sweet and I am sure there will be some parents bidding like crazy on them.

Not much more to talk about, the week was a blur and I felt like I was taking 10 steps backwards all the time! Did get a wee bit of shopping in though. Found this really cute shutter at O'Flanary's Emporium a few doors down from work. Love the little cut outs! In a few days we will be off to Morro Bay for a get away with some friends and I am really looking forward to that.

Hope that all of you have a great start to your week and have some time to work on projects. Now for me it's time to do some fast lurking and then back to the thimble! See you later alligators :-)!

Isn't it the pits when your computere goes wacky? Mine is trying it's best to give up the ghost but I have a new one coming in this week, so I am holding my breath. Those are some pretty quilts you were doing the binding on, and you "girls" look like you were having a lot of fun. Have a good trip!

Great shoes. I enjoy binding so much. Do you machine sew the binding on and then hand stitch?
