Yikes! Where has the summer gone??

Wow, the summer has really gotten away from me! I've been plugging away at Annabelle's flying geese quilt, but it's been s-l-o-w going. Just haven't felt like locking myself in the sewing room. I've finished five 4-block rows, however I think I need one more. Don't you hate when that happens? You think you're almost done, but you're not. It's the Quilter's Curse.

I need to apologize for not being a very good blogger. I've been playing around with the template to make it a little easier/cleaner to post. Haven't found anything that rings my chimes yet. Any suggestions? And of course indecision leads to procrastination, so I guess it's yet another UFO.......

I've also discovered that someone mentioned my blog in my college alumnae quarterly. If any Wilson College grads are checking in, glad to have you aboard! Please leave a comment or send me an email. I'd love to hear from you.

The list of favorite blogs over there on the right is growing. Go check some of them out! I particularly like the ones from Australia; such bright & happy fabrics! Check out those foodie blogs as well. If you are into food porn (obscenely enticing pictures of food) and general folksiness, visit Fat Johnny's Front Porch. He's a retired chef whose Cajun/BBQ-centric blog makes me drool. Oh, and that slow cooker blog is wonderful as well! Get up early on Saturday or Sunday, put stuff in your slow cooker, turn it on & retire to your sewing room for the day. 8-10 hours later, you'll have a lot of quilting done, and a fabulous meal waiting for you when you finally poke your head out the door!

Stay tuned for one of my next postings about the taping I attended for a new internet show called
Quilt Out Loud! I just don't want to post any pictures until I get their blessing -- I'm kind of old-fashioned that way. The taping was held at my favorite Babylock/Bernina/Brother dealer, Byrne Sewing Connection, in Doylestown, PA. The hosts, Jodie Davis and Mark Lipinski, are just the bee's knees, and so is their new show! You will need to join QNNTV (pay an annual fee to watch videos), but it is well worth it.

Love and Pieces, Pat
