Goodbye, July…

July was busy – two birthday parties that I attended – both for neighbors.  A lot of days spent at the quilt shop and the knit shop.  A trip up to Bethlehem was fun and I got to spend time with my dear little Isis and my sweet little Zac.  Spent some nice days being with mother – she continues to live as full a life as she can – and is well loved by the staff.

I write like…

I write like

Friday Fill-ins #187…

1. I’m going to spend time clearing out some books this week-end.

2. Spending time at the Franconia Notch looks like it would be an adventure and daring.

3. Perhaps today you can make it a point to smile at everyone you see.

4. I have a true adventurer’s spirit.

5. Compassion is sometimes hard to show.

6. I keep trying to control my diet no matter how difficult.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to catching up with a couple of television shows I missed, tomorrow my plans include sewing a bit and knitting a lot and Sunday, I want to just chill around my house.

New Home…

Okay, so what do you think of my new blog look???

I love it!  And, photos are clickable to enlarge them – for those of you who enjoy doing that!!!

My dear friend, Dave, helped me set it up – (that translates to he did all the work and made me look good!!!)  Thanks, Dave!

I’m Home…

Yep…I’m home.  Went up to Bethlehem, New Hampshire Friday morning and just returned home today.

Isis Dreamweaver had surgery on her eye – and it was pretty rough.  She now has a contact in her eye for the next couple of weeks until her eye heals.  She was a bit difficult to keep quiet…

Came down I-93 to Meredith, NH – and then followed the road to New London – spent some time with mom.  When I left she was off to get her hair cut.

The drive home took me through the Franconia Notch…Oh.my.goodness!  It is totally gorgeous!  Take your breath away gorgeous!  There are no photos that I could take as it is a two lane highway – with few, if any,  pull-offs.  I had never been through the Notch – and I have to tell you it was AWESOME!!!

Stopped at the knit shop and spent a few hours – and then home…Killian is thrilled to see me!!!

Remember Bargello???

Began a four week class at the quilt shop – it is a bargello quilt…


The fabrics are from Mayfield Studios and oh are they soft…the two prints that are in black will be the borders…

The other fabrics were sewn as you see – had to make 3 sets of them…

Then:


It was cut up like this…Next Wednesday night will be the second class!  Can’t wait to see how this quilt goes!

A mystery quilt…

I haven’t worked on a mystery quilt in ages…and my quilt shop is doing one…

The clues come out on Tueday – and here is the first part done…

All the cuts have been made…wonder what comes next???
