some puter troubles

It seems that my computer has got the flu, in the shop at the moment. I am at work right now so I should be quick. This weekend I should have my Angel Sticher projects ready for mailing, as well as some other things. Have to say this has been fun, stressful but fun. I will be so busy the next few weeks, a good busy. Should be a nice long weekend , taking Friday off work to do things around the house and get ready for some visitors.
Well that's all for now.

AQD Quillt Show in Lancaster, PA

Just saw this and was thinking of going, also wondering if anyone else on the East Coast near Pa would be going. It might be fun to get together, check out all of the beautiful work, lunch and of course shop. I know it is a little ways off, but something to think about.

Just working and lerking

At the moment I want to pull my hair out...........I have signed up for way too many things, Sticher Angels, Advent swap, Siggie swap a hugh bake sale and three different Craft Fairs and then there is Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been working like crazy and should have everything done on time but I am not as young as I use to be.

Lerking about I found the wonderful site that those 9 talented ladies in Oz have started Among the Gum Trees link over to the right. Cannot wait to see what they have to offer, sure to be fun.
The photo is from 9/03, every year we have Hawiian Shirt Friday from Memorial Day to Labor Day at work and the last one we have a Luau, these are some of the goodies.
Photos to follow of some of my work.........

I don't know if anyone remembers the fabric I purchased that had 1950's kitchen pictures on it , but I could not figure out what to make with it. I finally decided I would make my daughter a table topper from it. She loves things like this. I will have to find that photo of the fabric and since this is a long weekend coming up I think I will work on it. The only plans we have are maybe a BBQ at my brother in law's.

Not much going on.....hahaha

Here is what I did for my Christmas finishes in Aug, over with Quitling is Blissful's Di. Have been having some problems with loading photos on my computer at home so decided to try at work, shhhh don't tell anyone. The first two were fun and I might make a few more as gifts, the second was a panel and I just did a little quilting around the tree and the dove. This is a wall hanging for my dil's birthday next week.
Will have more to show later next week, as very busy at work.
I have to say I am very jealous of all the women I have been reading about who get to go on weekend retreats for sewing, maybe I should try to get one together. Not at my house as it is very small. Well that is something to think about for next Spring maybe.
See ya later.
