Besides quilts and most any old stuff, I love things made of wood. Recently I found this three inch high wooden rocker and doll. It appears to be made by each piece which is glued together. I love it. The doll, which I've had a while, is made from craft wood pieces. It stands on a wooden heart.
Yesterday I put my nose to the grindstone and got 10 items done from my paper/phone list. I hate doing this stuff and always put it off forever. so this was a major accomplishment. Lots of call backs and call somewhwere else and whatever. Then I discovered a zip bag of soup had leaked all over my refrigerator. Well, guess it needed cleaned out anyway. This morning I was all out of milk and made a quilt trip to the store. I just discovered the plastic gallon was leaking in the refrig. Hey, I cleaned it yesterday. Hope this isn't one of those "comes in threes" things. Oh, well just the little irritants of life.
For Christmas I got a battery operated Sudoku game. Neat. Suppose to be good to keep the mind working. Not sure what it says about my mind as I can only do the easy versions. But it is fun.
Only quilting done yesterday was some hand work on binding a quilt last night. Maybe today.

Just to let you know, I'm here but not feeling great. My tummy is objecting to my arthritis meds. So now my joints are objecting to not having the meds but the tummy is still upset so.... Dammed if you do and dammed if you don't.
I played with the fabrics in the last post but the black and orange are both dominant. I thought the black would be background but .... I'm sure the major problem is trying to flip flop the fabrics the way my tummy is doing and not liking either one.

I'm still not able to post pics. I can get them from Picasa to the compose screen but they won't post. Funny because without the pics, it will post. I tried reading and the problem may be in my publishing settings. Now if I could just find that. Any ideas?
Not quilting yet. I am reading your blogs and Jennifer Chiarerini's An Elm Creek Quilts Sampler. It is the first three novels in one book. I have the first two finished already.
Hoping to get back into quilting soon.

While visiting me, my DGS moved me to the new blogger. Now I can't post pics. Oh, me. Any suggestions? But he did set up or teach me many other good things including how to save my blogger posts to my computer.
All my children and grandchildren got together for two days at Mexico Beach, Florida. I have three children and six grandchildren. They came from WI, MI, PA, MA (Massachusettes), AL, KS and FL. Three of the grandchildren are in elementary school and three are in college. This was the first time we had all been together in eight years. Very nice visit. Nice place. Nice weather. Good time had by all. Some of my family was here longer but now all have gone back to their busy lives.
I'm trying to get things back together here and hope to get back to some quilting soon.
