Further Frustrations & A Finish!
This is how I feel at the moment about computers!! It seems my previous post's Happy Dance was a tad premature. Those of you who've been trying to email me again will have realised that the stupid company with the stupid crashed server still hasn't fixed the stupid problem PROPERLY!!! AAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!! So I've been doing the only thing that really dealt with the problem - SULKING! Tee! Hee! Hee! Ended up turning the computer off entirely and reading a book!!! However, I think I'm now over my fit of peak and thought I'd better tell you all DON'T EMAIL ME YET! I'll pop another little post up when the dust finally settles. Stina knows how I feel - she's been without internet for 10 days, so we've commiserated with each other!!
Now in between swearing at the computer (well ... the company that can't run an efficient server hosting business, anyway!!), sulking and reading - My! I have been busy! Tee! Hee! Hee! I managed to finish off my blue quilt!! Fanfare!! The crowd goes wild!! Wanna see?
I'm really pleased with how it turned out. And before my smarty-pants friends point out the 'rose' coloured inner border - Don't bother!! My beloved Geek Boy has already given me a worried look and said, "You're mellowing - you've bought pink fabric FOR YOURSELF!" I still say it's 'rose'. And it does have spots, so that has to count for something!! Actually, I tried REALLY hard to put other colours as the inner border, but none of them made it 'pop' the way the 'rose' spotty fabric did ... so ... It ended up measuring 52" almost square. (Nothing I make seems to be ENTIRELY square! Tee! Hee! Hee!) So there we go ... my first finish for May Britt's and my Finish One Project A Month challenge. I'll be adding it to my side bar later this afternoon when I try to update my slightly-out-of-date list of challenge participants. Don't panic if you think you've signed up but don't see your name on MY list - check May Britt's list - and then panic if you don't see it! Tee! Hee! Hee! Just kidding! Just drop May Britt an email and she'll fix it right up - and I'll catch up sometime soon!
Right now, though, I'm off to do some Secret Squirrel designing. I know I said I was taking January away from designing, but after a chat with Marian at my fave fabric shop Quilters Angel, I need to get sketching. Can't say too much until details are all finalised, but I will tell you that if you're within travelling distance of Toowoomba, you should set aside the weekend of March 13, 14 and 15!!! Will update you as soon as I can - the suspense is good for you! Tee! Hee! Hee! So until next time - Bear Hugs!
