it started off I couldn't get to my blog or visit anyone elses blog....then no emails.....and finally the thing just wouldn't do anything but come up with an error message that I was timed out. HOW RUDE.....the computer actually had the nerve to give me a time out!!!! HUMP....STOMPING MY FEET....POUTING..... OK, so maybe I needed a time out! My girl came home Friday and took pity on me and had a look see. It was the two of us for a couple days, a girlie couple days, and we had invited Mr. Wiggles to spend the night Friday so his mommy and daddy could have a date night. We had so much fun. He is quite the entertainer now! After he went to bed, she tackled the computer and after a few hours of doing who knows what she decided it needed to be defragmented......whatever that means. Now all my fragments must be back in place because I am zipping around like crazy!!!!!! A BIG OLD WOOHOO TO MY GIRL!! Today was lunch with all the kiddos....life is good and we are very lucky parents!
my week also. This is an antique quilt I worked on today. The customer took the quilt apart and the blue sashing and binding was actually the backing fabric. Love that blue fabric!
Early Monday morning my friend Carol and myself leave for a four day Quilt Camp at Camp Cedar Glen with the Quilt In A Day ladies - YIPPPPPPEEE. Here's a peek at the pile I have going so far! I am sure by tomorrow I will have changed what I am taking. We are meeting a group of friends for breakfast on Monday and then a quick quilt shop stop (gotta visit a shop before camp), and then off we go. I will have pictures and stories to tell at the end of the week. I am so excited to be seeing my buddy Annie also!!!
Here's some good quilt reading!!! I don't know if you have ever subscribed to the Goat Gazette by Country Threads, but wow is it ever full of quilty goodness! Everything from quilty stuff to animal interest stories, happenings at their shop with tempting quilt related items, recipes and just general wonderfulness. And of course the annual Quilt Sampler.....gotta love the Quilt Sampler!!!
I have really missed all you bloggy people and seeing what everyone is up to! Karen has posted her tutorial for the car caddy!! She did a great job on it. I'm thinking these will make great presents for quilty friends. Ms. Geranium is having so much fun playing in the dumpsters while they prepare for their BIG MOVE!!! I know there are stories going on over there that I need to catch up on!
Here's a bit of the flora and fauna Mr. Polka Dot has been tending to. I find him outside working in the yard every day. I was worried about him and retirement. His job was fast paced and I wasn't quite sure if he was ready for that to be over. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!! He is happier than ever and busier than ever. In fact the two of us just don't understand how we ever fit working in! Everyone kept telling us that, and boy is it ever true. I highly recommend the whole retirement thing!!!
Well I've gabbed enough for this post and I need to get my sleep so I can get ready for packing for camp tomorrow! Happy rest of the weekend bloggy people!
