It seems I've been gone so long and actually got used to be computerless that it's hard to get back 'in the groove."

It's a chilly day here in Eastern Washington and the forecast calls for colder yet. I'm trying really hard NOT to turn up the thermostat but put on more layers. In fact, they are saying it could snow any time until Tuesday. Oh joy!  I'm trying really hard to be ready for winter. My hoses have been drained and coiled back up, I have my Winter tires on my car. I think the main thing yet to do is wrap the a/cs so the cold doesn't come in around them.

I won't get this new plan into effect until the first of next year I'm sure but my plan calls for blogging more often and having a different topic each day of the week.

Are you a counter? I am, and I am noticing my Little Princess is becoming a counter too. Is that something genetic? If I'm reading her a Bearnstain Book she insists on counting the bears on each and every page! In the process she's actually teaching the Little Prince to count!

Now to something quilt related. Have I mentioned that I found my quilt blocks that have been missing nearly twenty years? I am really excited about that. They are Dresden Plates, enough for a king size quilt, that my grandfather did shortly before he became sick and passed away. In fact, I found one block that doesn't have the center circle done. I was thinking of finding a  scrap that would work, but the more I think about it I think I'll just tidy up the edges and leave it that way. Kind of a tribute to him. Maybe put a few together in a long wall hanging or frame that one. Something so it's not getting washed very often.

I enjoy getting comments, it lets me know someone is actually reading my posts. So please drop me a comment and let me know what is going on in your corner of the world.


  1. Would love to see pictures of your blocks.

    I hate cold, we are moving to I whinning already?

  2. I like the idea of leaving that last center blank. I inherited a friends quilty bits and several of the projects had needles in them where she'd left off.
