Sunny Sunday!

What a nice day it has been today. Of course it is that time of the year that you don't spend to much time outside because of the heat, but I sure do love the sunshine.

I just finished posting the first installment from our vacation in May. I finally got all of my pictures labeled and down loaded. I think I have over 300 pictures that turned out. I love having a digital camera, I can trash what didn't come out and it doesn't cost me anything! I was forever taking pictures, but never getting them developed..... Lots of 'pictures' in my brain. I was looking though a couple boxes and found some VHS tapes that we have taken over the years. I am going to get them put over onto DVD in the near future. It is a hoot watching them!

Now that I downloaded the pictures from our vacation I started a post about it, so go on over and see what we have been up to!

Today I managed to get to the temple and get pictures. I can't believe that it has been 3 months since we have visited.  Check it out here:

Today I managed to get another quilt mostly quilted. We went out to supper with friends, so I had to quit working on it. I hope to get back to it tomorrow and finish it. Then I have some binding for 3 quilts in my future.

Right now we are sitting and watching "Emergency!". Any body remember that show from the 80's? I use to watch it all the time and now I can watch it again on Netflix. We just finished watching "McMillan and Wife". Since giving up our DirecTV we have found we really like all of the old shows. So, I shall say, 'good night' for now and finish watching this great show.

Tired Thursday!

Evening all!

How has your week been? Mine has flown by so fast that I am wondering where it went...... Very little 'house work' has been done this week. Yesterday I planned on going to an estate sale that advertised 'LOTS of sewing supplies', but when Carl stopped in at home before I left he told me he had stopped earlier and they didn't have anything.... very disappointed! I did go have lunch with a friend and that made up for the estate sale.... Tomorrow I hope to get over to the Temple site and get some pictures. After that I want to work on the quilt that I have on the frame. It would be nice to get it done this weekend, but only time will tell.

Until next time,

Lazy Tuesday!

How has everybody's day gone today? Mine went by pretty fast and I actually got a lot of paperwork done at work. So, that was a plus.... Tonight has been a lazy night with watching TV and playing on the computer.

I have been working on my quilting software by going through each lesson. I wasn't sure if I would really use it or not, but I am sure when I get use to it I shall use it. They have a new version out this year and that is what pushed me to try the older versions. If I didn't like it I wouldn't be out that much money. I may end up with the newer version at some point, but for now I am having fun!

This past weekend I managed to get about 1/2 of the pictures we took on vacation labeled. I haven't gotten them down loaded yet, so I can't post any. Some of them are a hoot! Yes, I shall post a couple silly ones of me....

Tomorrow shall be a run around day. There is an estate sale that starts a little before 8 AM that I think I shall visit. They have advertised LOTS of sewing 'stuff'. The person must have been either a quilter or a seamstress because one of the things they are selling is her Viking sewing machine. If memory serves me right I think it is an embroidery machine..... I don't want the machine, but I sure am interested in the 'other' stuff LOL! Like I need anything else! I just can't pass up a great deal on thread and notions, not to mention fabric..... Speaking of fabric Carl took me to Bob's Variety store in Sun City West this weekend and I picked up some nice pieces. Their sale price was $2.00 a yard! I couldn't walk away from that :). I also picked up some more of Eleanor Burn's 'Victory Quilts' fabric. I fell in love with the fabric when it came out, but I sure didn't like the price. Now, this is the only place I can find it and the price is great. I just may go back and pick up the rest that she has as time goes by. I have the book and may make a small project with some of it.

Well, my friends, I need to get some shut eye. I haven't been sleeping well the last couple nights and I do need my beauty sleep. Especially if I am to get my licks in with the other quilters in the area at that estate sale tomorrow......

Have a great night!
