Have a super day!
*********************Just something...what do you think?******************
I love quilt alongs!! I absolutely dislike it, however, when the pattern or whatever is there for a few days and then gone. I never seem to be able to get it downloaded in a timely manner, so I am unlikely to visit or get the quilt going...I wish that the patterns could be keep on the site until the quilt along is over!! Why do they do that? I have a house and sick dog and sick hubby and full time job going too, so it is sometimes a challenge to download!
Do you keep a calendar or something to help remind yourself of these?
Thanks! Have a great day!!

One more thing on a vastly different topic: Is it OK to clean my sewing machine with the aide of a spray can of air, or not? Would love your opinion!!!
Have a great day!!

It has been a challenging week. I have gotten next to nothing done, and that bothers me. Just the regular housework. Every day is something...an appointment, a SOMETHING to do! I just want a day off...do you?

Humble Quilts asked me, "What are you into lately?" A simple question, but one that really got me thinking...what in the world am I into, and with a little more thought, what is my favorite kind of quilts, ever?!! I guess the answer is, like a lot of us....I love it all!! But plaids and strings? They hold a very, very special place in my quilting heart. I was refolding quilts yesterday, and found this little plaid quilt I made several years ago. It is a bear paw quilt (of course!), made of, yes, Plaids and Strings!!
I am loving my rainbow quilts, because they are using bits and pieces of scraps and strings, that I really want to use up and pass on for someone to enjoy.
I love brights, and dull colors, and plaids and reproductions, and batiks, and 1930's...I guess I am so blessed to just really enjoy the whole gamut of everything the quilting world has to offer.
So my question for you is...what are you into? I would really love to know!!!
http://victoria-carroll-parkhill.blogspot.com/ We had a little exchange...and I just love these selvages (strings!) and will put them to good use! That little rectangle you see is a sachet. Vic makes them, and it smells like I imagine heaven smells like...yummy!
Have a super day!

Have a super day, each of you! I was supposed to be the charge nurse today, so I got up at 4:40, to be ready...but they texted me to stay home for a while and be there regular time. So! An hour early...means a blog post, folding laundry, and sweeping floors before work time. Using every minute here!!
Hugs to all,

I got placed on call for today. Our patient census is down, at least in the CCU where I work. As nurses, we take turns being on call. There are two ways to look at this...I have to stay home, and dressed, so that I can be called in on a moments notice for any STEMI (heart attack patient) or any other emergency patient that requires critical care. I get paid the grand sum of $2 dollars an hour for this, and need to take vacation pay to get the rest of my wages...
But on the other hand!! I have an unexpected day off, at least for now!! So I am making tracks as fast as I can...Yahoo!!!
