Lately I feel liked I've been sucked into the busy machine. Getting my stitching fix in odd moments, never being able to just relax and stitch. Sitting on the edge of my seat instead of leaning back and putting my feet up....always ready to jump up and do the next thing.
This morning I was able to take a minute and enjoy seeing my Oriental Lily grow. On sunny days, you could swear it grows an inch!
Yesterday we got a new internet provider, so cable guys here for a few hours. The modem is now in the garage - hubby sits out there on his iPad, and it's right next to my sewing room. My wifi is incredibly fast now. We spent the evening boring holes above the door, so that Sam's ethernet cable could be routed out there, and now I have no blue cable running over my floors!!! SO happy.
My printer died last week, and my oldest son brought me an extra. Wowzers what an extra. It's wireless, and does it all so fast!!
You can even print from your phone!!! Technology is amazing.
I've almost finished stitching my first block of my new pattern, no clue what to call it yet -
Just two more leaves to stitch. I've already traced block two, that yellow dot fabric will be the bird.
And I've assembled a large pile of green scraps for all the leaves. These blocks have a lot of leaves. I'm pretty much settled on how the layout of the blocks will be, but not sure what else I'll add to it. Maybe some wonky flying geese, maybe some birds-in-the-air blocks, maybe hst's. It's going to be wonky and not perfect - I don't do perfect.
I'm using a lot of the scraps that Karen sent to me from her Garden of Contentment quilt. Gosh I love scrappy quilts!!! I must admit, this quilt has me wishing I wasn't allergic to wool, as I can picture it done in wools.
That's enough playing for me - the busy machine is getting ready to suck me in again, and probably chew me up and spit me out before the day is over. It's a mum day, plus I have books on hold at the library and I have to return the modem to the old cable company. Oh, and stop at the eye doctor to see if they take our insurance. If I see something in the backyard that I can't make out, I get my camera, put it on full zoom, and take a picture. Time for new glasses, lol!!!
See you soon - OH - blogger still isn't sending comments, so I'm commenting on my own post as soon as I hit publish, and checking that little box that says "send me emails of new comments". I then get the comments in email, but they ALL come in as no-reply - so if you've ever had an email from me, I can reply to you as google stores your addy in my gmail, otherwise I can't. Let's hope that google fixes this soon. If you have a blogger blog and would like to complain, I encourage you to post on this post in the forum -
The more voices the better.
See you soon, have a great weekend!!
