I subscribe to a blog that sends daily color-theme photos right to my reader. This one from last week really struck my fancy! :) Oh to manage to produce such beauty myself. :) I had better get more timely with... Continue reading

OH, Ellen, our minds are on the same wavelength. :) That was my second thought (right after 'how beautiful!') - what a great stamp this would make. :) Instead (lacking a way to keep it fresh and having no idea where my stamp pads and inks/paints are at the moment), I ate it. LOL! :) Linda

I have probably forgotten more than I've remembered for posting. That's the down side of posting less often. (sigh) MY physical therapist is concerned that I have not yet achieved 180 degrees of extension with my knee (apparently the deadline... Continue reading

I am definitely planning to be at the July meeting (on the 13th?). I think I am the 'program'. :) Goodie, I look forward to seeing all the new pretty feathers. I think this quilt will be truly cool! :) Linda

I've been persevering with my 'taking care of myself' routine. Last Friday morning I saw my knee surgeon and he said that I am healing quicker than usual (and not to be too pushy with myself, to watch out for... Continue reading

Today is a lovely summer day - warm but not blazing hot, humid enough for comfort but not breathless, nice. Birds singing, breeze blowing. :) Mind you, I observe this via my windows as I have not yet been outside... Continue reading

As usual, my life is crazy busy when it isn't quiet and boring. :) The past two days have been busy - happy busy for the most part. Yesterday morning was the second monthly meeting of the English Paper Piecing... Continue reading

I think the iPad interface (which I am using for this post) appends photos at the end of my post? You can see a picture of the small (2"x2"?) strawberry that I created there. Yes, that means my desktop computer... Continue reading

Looks like this is going to come out to be two posts only. Yeah! :) You may recognize the set of four prints in my haul - the newest edition in the Ghastlies series by Alexander Henry. I giggle when... Continue reading

I have taken my morning meds, changed my bandages, eaten breakfast and done my first round of exercises. It is taking me about twice as long to do things. The up side is that I feel less stressed, more 'in... Continue reading

I noticed this morning at my doctor's office that the Yucca flowers are about to bloom. Definitely early June weather. :) You just never know where you will find inspiration for quilting. :). This is the front door mat going... Continue reading

My iMac is having i/o issues. I have a lot to tell but can't get the machine to listen. Sigh! Mobile platforms are aggravating to use so might wait for repairs. Saw my knee surgeon this morning. He was surprised... Continue reading

The weather has been truly glorious this weekend! I managed to go out for a short walk yesterday and discovered my neighbor's bleeding heart in bloom. Laureen (my neighbor) is gifted with a real green thumb. Her yard is full... Continue reading

I am in preparation mode now, all my attention on my impending knee surgery in many ways. The photo above shows a crocheted circle I finished last night - it is intended for Yarndale in England. I read Lucy's blog... Continue reading

I have not been doing very well with my diet for several months (since my Mom died, in fact). For some time I stayed the same weight ... but now I am gaining again (had my weekly weigh-in yesterday). Sigh.... Continue reading

This week has gone past in a blur - isn't it still Monday? Grin. Actually, I know it isn't because yesterday (Wednesday) morning was the first meeting of the English Paper Piecing Club at Springwater Designs. I had no signed... Continue reading

What a pleasant day I have had today! :) I managed to finish the embroidery on my new iPhone bumper case and am very pleased with it. Got phone calls from my daughter and my niece Stephanie ... and generally... Continue reading

There are lots of violets growing in places in my yard - it is shady and we don't fertilize or pamper the grass. Violets are pretty special little flowers and I love the various wild colors they bloom, from palest... Continue reading

I found your blog via the Typepad blog today ... and, as I am expecting (well, my daughter is expecting:) our first grandchild, the topic is apt. What a really nice give away? I had a chance to see the original work of art (a large quilt) from which the illustrations in this book are taken - a real work of delight! :) Linda

Today was, hmmm, interesting. The weather was glorious yesterday (70's, sunny, balmy - spring!:) but today it is gray and intermittantly rainy, in the mid60's. I had an appointment at 1 p.m. in Baltimore. I've driven into the heart of... Continue reading

Thursday morning I had a doctor's appointment for a pre-operation check up. Actually, I saw the Nurse Practitioner (not sure I spelled that right:). She did the usual thumping and listening. They also took an EKG (heart electronics). She did... Continue reading

I am participating in a group photography challenge from the Sketchbook folks titled 'Along The Way' this week. These three photos are shots I took in passing as we worked at my (soon-to-be-former) store today. I am physically exhausted tonight... Continue reading

Hey, Melinda - I never think anyone will remember me. :) I am going to TRY to retain the lesson (which I _do_ know but rarely remember:) about mixing hand and machine quilting stitch. I love WI. Am trying to talk my husband into going back there when he retires (esp. since my daughter will likely live in Madison for the rest of her life:) :) Linda
