stupid computers

Ah well, maybe it isn't the computer, just the operator!! Anyway have had computer messed up.

Quilt is coming along nicely, Center is completely finished and I'm working on the outer background quilting. Should complete it by my deadline of 2nd Tuesday of Dec. I can hope anyway. All is working out better than I had hoped though.

If I could figure out how to get pictures on here things would be more interesting, eventually I hope.
Had a wonderful Thanksgiving at DD's home. Lots of good eating and visiting, oldest GS didn't get to come because he had to work. However he said it was triple time pay, so it took some of the pain out of having to work that day.

I'm behind in my postcard swaps, but hope to catch up this next week. Hate it when that happens.

Ordered the new fabric silhouettes book, looks interesting and I have some good ideas to use this in the near future. Also ordered the new Dazzling quilts book, lots of ideas for embellishments in it. Now to have time to try what I have read.

Need to find the new Hoffman challenge fabric as I have an idea for an entry for that again this year. Traveled 2 out of the last 3 years, so not to bad. Wish me luck on this one.

Club wants to try journal quilts, so have to work something up for the January meeting on that subject. Hope I can get them started trying new things.

Thats all for now, break time is over and its back to the quilting machine.

A while since I wrote anything. Elections are over (thank goodness) the locals went the way I hoped and we still have a very good town board. Whew. So many half truths and outright lies from the opposition. Thankfully people saw through the garbage and re-elected the good guys.

Quilt is coming along. I'm enjoying the process and hope it turns out like planned, came up with a cool (at least I think so) background quilting design that is a combination of McTavishing and feathers. Hope it keeps going well.

Finished my Norfolk challenge and the tulip stained glass from retreat. Feels good to accomplish something for a change. Seems like I have been spinning my wheels all fall.

Signed up to go to Ricky Tims seminar in Omaha next August. Should be a fun 2 1/2 days. Of course its just a couple weeks after state meeting so will be a busy time.

Colder today, a bit of snow covering the ground yesterday but it melted quickly.
