It's been a rough week

I was so full of good intentions on Sunday. I was going to get going on my first MM block and finish my Pretty in Plaid quilt. Well, you know what road is paved with good intentions. I did get my sewing area semi-clean. Does semi count?

I didn't buy any fabric but, unfortunately, I didn't use any this week either. I finished a b**** of a quilt today. It's my guild's raffle quilt and I'm not really sure what they were thinking. I took this when I was doing the stand and stare. I do like the colors though. I looked at it as a challenge, wouldn't you?

I'm 57. Wow. Remember when we were 25 and our parents told us to wait until we were their age? Well, it's happened. There are some differences though. I still color my hair, have most of my teeth and can sit on the floor with my grandson. My Mom stopped playing with me before I was 10 or 11. She had "matured". I don't want to "mature". I tell people that I may be getting older but that doesn't mean I have to grow up. lol

I talked about Magical Medallions. It's slow going because I'm in a pit called no motivation. But here are the fabrics I'm going to use from my stash:

Greens: 10 1/8yd pieces, 5 1/4yd pieces, & 1/2yd of 2 favorite greens.
Purples: 6 1/8yd pieces, 1/4yd of 2 purples and 1/2yd of 1
Pink: 6 1/8yd pieces, 1/4yd of 2 pinks and 1/2 yd of 1
Yellow or Gold: 5 1/8yd pieces, 1/2yd of 1

By my calculations, that's 8 1/8yds. It's not a lot but it does make a dent.
Here's the link to KKB's gallery: Magical Medallions is in the center toward the bottom. I'm doing the first block the Piece O'Cake way. I took a class from Becky Goldsmith so I like that technique.

Happy New Year!

I've been a very bad blogger. It's funny, you know. I love reading about other people and commenting on their blogs. I don't know; I guess I don't think I'm as interesting as those I read. But I am-just as much as they are.

For 2010 I'm going to do this. I may not always have a lot to say but I'm going to say it. I'm sitting here with my new laptop. I'm falling in love with it! DH Mike's hard drive finally died. He's been using a computer we got back in the 90s. So it's pretty old. Our entire financial lives are on that hard drive! He's usually very good about doing backup and he nags Keri and me about it all the time. Well, guess what? Friday night when he was shutting down he thought about backing up everything we'd done that day-our 2010 budget. Nah, wait till tomorrow. Saturday morning came and.............yup. Dead as a doornail.
So he decided that he'll use my desktop and I'll have a laptop. Works for me!! lol
We went to Best Buy on Sunday and got my new little baby. It's an HP with Windows 7. Like I said; I'm falling in love.
I can take it upstairs and do the IQ tutorials, listen to all the downloads I've been saving and check email if I so desire.
We'll see what the future brings with this baby!!!
