Little of this

Stayed up 'til 0300---singing to 70-80's rock and making a few things:



Plus started a Christmas Quilt for my dad and stepmom! Turning out well!

Still procrastinating quilting this on my new frame:

And finishing this:

My birthday?

No! Just "retail therapy" after a "surprise" hospital inspection! After our last inspection last month, we started to breathe again. Well, that was short lived-12----- yes 12----inspectors were at my hospital (Medicare) for the last 4 days! Can you say white gloves and flashlights? It was grueling.

What's a girl to do? Well, if you don't drink, eat sweets, swear ( maybe a little) or gamble----I guess it's off to JoAnns I go.....this is my loot ( minus a birthday, and a couple of Christmas presents)!

Is that not the cutest rick rack you have ever seen?


And this is for my favorite Dr.

My daughter moved in with 2 girlfriends in Carlsbad. I made her a reversible Halloween/ general table runner in late September! The girl's all loved it and have it on their dining room table.


When Amanda was over this last weekend, she asked me why she hadn't gotten her Thanksgiving/Christmas runner yet! I LOVED that question! Most times I think people just tolerate getting things from this crazy quilter.





Amanda also requested a green grocery bag holder for their kitchen. Yippee! I will make that in the next few days! That obviously requires a trip to get fabric!

This is the runner I made for our family room:



I also made a 5x8 pad holder for my bff, Susan:

I am putting stems and leaves on the bottom of the "Fall Quilt"in the last blog post. I was using freezer paper to turn the edges and iron the seam allowances down! I dropped the iron on my leg for a split second:


Be careful with your irons....they are HOT!


Long time no blogging.....


Ever since we "updated" my iPhone and iPad to the "newest" IOS last week, I had been unable to use Blogsy to write posts from my iPad. That wouldn't be so tragic if our home computer hadn't died as well. After much investigation and time, my wonderful husband was able to fix my iPad and iPhone, and then he went and bought me a new computer (he is a serious MAC guy, but I have to have IBM to support all my embroidery patterns on my Bernina), so he was forced to buy an IBM laptop. Then he took the time to transfer all my stuff from the old computer to the that guy!
