Update on ME

What has been going on since January? Well, let's see if I can remember.

The yellow & green baby afghan was finished and given to a family member.
I finished Calendar Cats finally after years.
I made another baby afghan (which I have no picture of because of the lightning).
I've made about 10 bookmarks for my collection, both in crochet & cross stitch.
I started making biscornus.
I'll try to get pics of those soon.

Still working on the Circle Quilt (the bountiful Quilt). Almost finished with the appliquing of the diamond shapes. My SIL said she would quilt it for me because I'm just learning how to machine quilt on new machine. Never did it before.

My SIL gave me a complete Dresden plate wall size quilt, ready to sew together. Everything is cut out (my least favorite thing to do). I haven't started that yet. I'm hoping soon.

I've read about a zillion books. See my sidebar for all the titles I've read since the beginning of the year.

And finally, I'm going back to Disney with my DD & her DF. The first week of Dec. for Christmas in WDW. Staying at the Polyensian this time. I'm afraid we are going to get spoiled staying right on the monorail line.
I've Lapsed Again!!!!
I was going to be good. Try to post more often. But then life got in the way. I should say blog reading got in the way. And finding free patterns online. Then a lightning storm which took our air conditioner, surround sound and computer. So here I sit at a new one, making a promise to myself that I'll post more. No guarantees here, I'm just going to try.

We Went To Walt Disney World!!!

We were there the first week of December. WDW was decorated for Christmas. A great time of the year to go. This time however the weather was very hot & humid. We pick this week because it is usually cooler (sometimes COLD) but not this week. We had a wonderful time just the same. We stayed at Caribbean Beach Resort. This picture was taken in Epcot. Can't wait to go back!!!

Today I started crocheting a baby blanket for a friend at work whose wife is pregnant. She's due in February....So I thought I should get going on it. So it was off to A.C. Moore's. Not my husband's favorite place...but he went. I got the yarn I needed and a quilting magazine for me!!! Had some money on a gift card still so it only cost us $10. Not bad. Here's a picture of the blanket so far!!

It is now 2008. I haven't posted since August of 2007. What happened? Let me tell you.
I started working on my Circle Quilt again. I'm still working on my Circle Quilt. I've made great strides in getting this done. All the circles are sewn together and onto the background squares. All the squares are sewn together into rows. I'm working on appliquing on the curved squares. I'll try to get some pics soon. We can't find our digital camera. I haven't figured out how to use the new one yet.
I've been reading a lot also. See the book list for 2007!!
We went to Disney World in Florida in December. (This is where the camera went. I think it may still be in Rich's suitcase). Then it was Christmas. So that's why I haven't blogged since August.
I'm going to try to keep up with this because I enjoy reading everyone else's blogs. Let's hope I can do it.
