Treated and healed....

My computer had to go to the Computer Doctor and the procedure it received was a success. ( of course the Computer Doctor is the best in this mother's eyes ).  A few years back I remember saying how I had no use for a computer. Talk to me now!

I have been working on my
 Quilt Along.. but I  changed my mind again.. You know how when you make a project and have just a little fabric left? Well that would be the case with the
small version of the Quilt Along so I am cutting the larger  version (Carol's) size but I am thinking I will make  Kelly's version with the embroidery.

Meanwhile we had the Bed Runner workshop for the Guild and everyone had fun making the runner.

My version is on the wall in back..
This is not a very colorful picture.. my battery was low... but the colors show well in the

pillow I made to match.. This fabric is Wild Rose by Blackbird ...
And the last
Mystery BOM is done.. next; to put  finishing touches on this project...

I did not answer your comments but the support is always appreciated and hopefully the computer will be on the mend for  a while.
What would we do without the
 C O M P U T E R!

Quilt Along with Charming Girls

Oh! this is really exciting Kelly and Carol have teamed up and come up with two beautiful quilts and are hosting a quilt along:) I couldn't decide which one to make so I am going to make both.... This is Kelly's, the small version and I decided to make it with.... Lily and Will. I am going to make the small one first. This is Carol's and the larger version. I will make it with... Summer End..This pattern just speaks to me in Kansas Troubles.

I probably will only attempt the large on in the fall because the summer looks like it will be a busy one and I don't know how much time I will have to sew.

The instructions for making the quilts will be posted on the Charming Girls Kelly and Carols' blogs so head on over for all the details .. copy the button, feel the excitement and come quilt along.
