stuff going on

The camera will be fixed-still waiting to hear when I get it back-in case I forgot to update that bit of news. I have quilt show photos but I am headed out the door and wanted to rip off a short note-I am busy! spent much of the weekend gardening with a several hour break to quilt with my charity group. Thanks to help three quilts were bound and another gal turned in a completed quilt-so though there were only three of us...we finished four quilts-not bad! I finished quilting the small heart wall hanging last night. We had very warm weather hit yesterday, but, that is how Oregon is- cool and cloudy-one day, the next up in the 80's! I would say Spring has truly arrived at last. Thank goodness for a sprinkler system. I need to set the auto feature next-when I get home tonight. This is my first year to actually "be in charge"-but a phone call for help is always available should I feel in over my head. I have a huge mess in here and everywhere-the house is getting neglected in favor of gardening/quilting. I did come home last night and cooked up all sorts of yummy things-I had hit the market on my way home from work with a new cookbook to try a new recipe from. They did not have the main ingredient so it was get inspired by what I found.
The taste results? Yum! I bought packaged handmade fettucini noodles and artichoke/lemon pesto...instant fabulous dinner. I cooked up veggies and brown rice with sauce for lunches/dinners for tonight/tomorrow. I hope to add binding to the wall hanging and a sleeve tonight. I am hand stitching black binding still-took it to work and did some on my "lunch hour" yesterday. Did I mention my local longarm gal is on vacation? Do I use someone else or wait?
I am still mulling that over. Maybe I will make a call today to another gal I have been wanting to try out. Ok...now I am late! dashing off.....

never ends, does it--always something to do inside and out when you garden.

4 more quilts for the cause--good for you. This starts the next batch, right, because you mailed a bunch off recently?

BB's for me today so no online time this a.m. and I am taking the rest of the night off.

Try the new gal! This will give you a perfect excuse, the first girl can't get indignant if she's not around!

Sounds like you've had a productive time while you're staying away form the computer.

And I'd try the new quilter. maybe with a top you don't mind so much if it's not perfect. Who knows she just might be more wonderful that the one you use now.
