I'm back now...and have things to share. I'm currently working on an art quilt - but the project is way out of control. Why does that happen to me? Even though I start projects like this with a sketch - but before I know it, the project is way bigger than originally planned...and I'm in over my head. Just see this other art quilt I was going to make for proof... Since this one will be a gift, I'm struggling forward with it. Not the easiest thing to do - especially when I don't have any sewing experience. At all. Everything I sew is done with a wing and prayer. The childebeasts have killed my computer. In my absence, they have taken to downloading things - things I don't understand. This is a problem when you're already dealing with a system you don't understand (like Linux). I had just gotten it where I could deal with it...and now it's all goofy. Which means it isn't recognizing my camera. I have photos to show you...but they are currently stuck on my little Canon. Rather than leaving you with nothing, I will show you a few things I got on the computer before the 'beasts caused it to croak. It feels good to be back. Enjoy!
