I am still breathing . . . but barely!

OK . . . I don't know what's going on with my blogger account, but I cannot open it at home anymore and have to find other desktop computers (work!) to even think about doing any updates - very frustrating!


I think this little mouse project is the last thing I was working on at the sewing machine and that was almost a month ago.  This was a little demo project that we had for a Quilt Camp workshop that we put on on May 5th.  It was a wonderful day - different ideas were presented - there was t-shirt yarn demos; fabric dyeing; mitered corner construction; continuous prairie point demo and instruction and hints on preparing our quilts for a long-arm quilter.  It was a great day and I don't think there was anyone that didn't go home without learning something.

Then this little devil . . .


will be completely atoned for!

Whiskey is a little monkey, and we are absolutely enjoying the complete dickens out of her.  A little wild, a lot lovable and never a dull moment when she is around - except when she's sleeping of course!


She has grown a bit since even these photos were taken and I sure hope that I can get a little more up-to-date with this blog thing soon.

All the weddings, showers, visitors, memorial services and workshops, should be over for now and I can get back to a little bit of normal in my life.  Although my Dad has just announced that he's moving to town in August . . . wonder how much packing, travelling and setting up he'll be needing me to do?  OK, so life might slow down for a month :).
