Life sucks

The car is sick. It is starting to get cold outside in the mornings and my heat is not working well. It has been to the shop once already and supposedly it is fixed. But it gets really cold in Ohio in the winter and I will freeze to death in my car on the way to work some morning. It is going back to the shop tomorrow.

The computer is sick also. It has some yucky virus and it is back in the shop. It should be back by the end of the week. Just in time for the extra pay period that happens only twice a year. And I am getting a bonus on that check also. Bye bye bonus and extra pay check!! I guess I didn't really need the money. I would rather have heat in the winter.

I had quilt last night. It is always great to get together with this group of ladies. When I got there one lady was curling another gal's hair. Trying to fix her perm. We had home made chocolate chip cookies. Male and female. Male with nuts. Female without. Several gals were binding their projects and I was working on a wall hanging that I found in a box in my sewing room. I am trying to finish up projects that are almost done.

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!!!

computer is sick again

The computer is sick again and it is going back to the shop. I miss it when it is gone but I get lots of other things done. I am going to stop at JoAnn's and get some spray adhesive and baste my daughter in law's quilt together and start the machine quilting of it. I promised her she could have it when they came for Thanksgiving. It should not take long for the machine quilting. After all it is just a wall hanging. I should have it ready to hand stitch the binding down at our meeting on Monday night.

I am thinking about getting some shots of the fall around here. The leaves are just beautiful this year. I am also going to do some baking this weekend. I promised a gal at work some peanut butter blossom cookies. She is providing the peanut butter and I love to bake and cook.

It's been a while

It i s hard to realize that it has been almost a month since I have posted anything. My computer spent part of the time in the shop with a complete overhaul. But it is much better now and I am quite happy.

Fall has come to Ohio. It is wonderful. The trees are starting to turn and there is a different crispness in the air. Every one you talk to has an opinion of the kind of winter to expect. Lots of snow, not much snow, ice, much warmer than normal, and much colder than last year. I am opting for much warmer than normal and snow just on the grass. But I am sure that won't happen.

I have started organizing the sewing room. It is a huge task. I never thought that I would admit it but I have too much fabric. I have started storing fabric in my pantry. I will have to live to be 105 to use up all my fabric. Especially if I do not buy any more fabric and stop taking any free fabric looking for a home.

I did finish one project. I had a panel that had two Halloween Trick or Trick bags on it. I did finish those last week for my niece and nephew. I am currently hand quilting a panel in between calls at work. It has angels on it and I will finish it tomorrow. Then onto a table runner that I have been working. I am trying to finish projects before starting any more. We shall see. I will include pictures as things get finished.
