I'm still here.....

...but the google chrome thingy throws me for a loop and it takes me 15 minutes to figure out how to do it!  I really hate that it got changed and my IT person is in Vegas (even though she reminds me that she no longer does IT...the brat).  As a result, I put off blogging.

At any rate, I have been working like a slave it seems like forever.  No time or energy to do any sewing, even though it keeps calling me.  I have been making very slow progress on the quilt started up in Ellijay.  Tonight I put one side of the border on it.  I did not realize just how big this puppy is.  It is really going to be a dazzler when it is quilted!  I don't yet have a back for it.

As for the other project started up in Ellijay, it remains someplace boxed up.  I did manage to get all my stuff back into the sewing room.  Now the kitchen only has boxes of GS cookies piled up on the table.

I also need to get back to Dark and Creepy...I know where that project is.... oops that's on a chair in the kitchen along with Orca Bay.. also requiring a backing.

Back from Ellijay

Forgot the camera. so no pictures.  Gretch at Stella Bella has a couple and I am sure Silver Thimble queen will post some when she recovers.

We had so much fun.  I went up Wednesday with Cindi to help Pat with set up.  It is so beautiful up there.  We almost escaped snow this year (the last 2 years we have had to deal with snow).  Some flurries on Saturday but just windy and very cold.  Who cares, we was sewin'!

My first project I messed up and will have to redesign it in the near future-before I forget.  I spent the rest of the time working on my Battle  Hymn project-12 gazillion 9 patch blocks.  I still have more cutting to do but made progress on it.

So sad to have to come home today.  Too many laughs. and such fun
More later-need to unload the car

My Sleep Number is 65

Wild Willie is liking his new bed.  I am still getting used to it and the verdict is still out.

I am on vacation this week.  Oh happy day!! A week away from the home is a good thing.  I should be getting ready for the trip to Ellijay later this week.  Cindi has all of her stuff prepped and ready to go.  I keep vacillating  on what I am going to take.  In the meantime, I am just vegging!  Definitely going blueberry crumb to be done with a Moda Bake Shop pattern.  Also working on a pattern I found in a magazine and using Battle Hymn fabric.  Don't really care what I work on because just being there with fun people is enough.

I am having a hard time getting onto the blog these days.  I hate that I have to fool around for at least five minutes every time I try.
