Wow...Time Sure Flies!

When I logged into Blogger I could hardly believe it's been so long since I posted. Not to worry, though, I'm still alive & well.  I just haven't finished any quilty projects, or any other projects for that matter, so had nothing to show. Still don't, but am making progress. Quilted a couple quilts during the past week and have been working on these string blocks that I started around two years ago. Seven more to go and there will be enough for a quilt. I really slowed down on that project when I used some of the blocks for a baby quilt. After that other projects got my attention and everything sat in a bag for a year or so. Finally this spring I decided it was time to get to work on finishing some UFOs.

Today I loaded Jamestown Landing on the machine and made one pass across it. It's been awhile since I did a bigger quilt and I forgot how long it takes to load one, line up the pattern and wind all the bobbins. Maybe it's time for a set of Red Snappers.

The kids had the twins' first professional pictures taken last week at TaHaZouka Park. I thought this one was just so cute. (As the grandma I don't have to be impartial.)

Our niece, Kelley Gubbels, took them and I think she did a fantastic job. I can't wait to see the rest.

Happy Monday

It's a beautiful day today after a nice rain yesterday. It was much needed. And if you're a quilter and don't like Mondays, no matter how nice, this is for you...

The one thing that kind of takes the shine off the day is the bill I got from the Post Office. $34 a year for a PO box to get my mail....and I live right here in town....just a block or a little less outside their "magic circle."  More expensive and less service every year, that's our Post Office. And now the Feds want to manage our health care???   Please!!!
