Yay, yay, YAY! My computer is FINALLY working again! And I fixed it myself (with some help)! It had a virus - I struggled for days to get it to accept some new virus software. Now I'm good to go. But I was told (nicely) that I need to clean up my desktop and get rid of old e-mails. Yes, I'm willing to admit I had over 4000 e-mails! All old ones that I hadn't gotten around to deleting. All gone now! And yes, I cleaned up my desktop, too. Hopefully my computer will appreciate all the attention it's gotten in the last few days.
So what else has been going on around here? As you can see above, I've done some machine quilting. So glad I finally got started quilting on the Gee's Bend quilt.
I got a new t-shirt - gotta love it!
Set the table with my newly painted pumpkins.
And I made another basket block. Only made one, I'm afraid, but at least that's progress. This one really screams Autumn, doesn't it?
My mother is here for the week. We've been running all her errands - she came with a list. Plus we've begun to cook the Thanksgiving feast. The turkey is brining, the sweet potato casserole is made and in the freezer, the corn bread for the dressing is cooked and crumbled. Tomorrow we'll be making 4 pies, 2 pumpkin and 2 pecan. Oh, and there is an apple cake all ready to gobble.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
