What I did in the car…

I think I mentioned that Steve did the majority of the driving on our trip to Baltimore. Two days each way, about 11 hours a day. I drove 4 hours, max. The rest of the time I worked on my Macbook Air*, my iPad (to connect to the web, check and respond to emails…), and on my iPhone (making calls). If you didn't know already, I do love my Apple products.

What did I do? I put these two ePatterns together and got them online. Both have been out of print for a long time. Many of you will recognize Stars in the Garden

And just in time for next Christmas, Reindeer Playground. This one was in our book, A Piece O' Cake Christmas, and it's on the DVD Learn to Applique The Piece O' Cake Way.

AND I worked on my AAQI challenge quilt. In fact, I embroidered on it through most of Jeff's graduation. I don't think I'll ever go to a graduation without handwork again. I'm really loving it. I still have 2 borders to applique and then I need to quilt it. I should just forget sleeping altogether but that's not going to happen.

*Side note: We bought a cool car adaptor like this a few years ago. It plugs into the car's power port (or cigarette lighter for those of us old enough to call it that). You can plug a regular power cord into it. It will even accept a 3-prong power cord. That's how I kept my laptop running.

And, for those of you who've read this far, I am getting fabric in. I'll be putting it on the site over the next few days. Watch the menu bar for Fabric. I orders a few Christmas prints that I just could not pass up. There are some fun dots coming and one big print. Soon I'll let you know about the big print of the every other month club!

  1. Wow, I really love this quilt! I love these clear bright colours you have been using. And it’s great to see some Kaffe Fassett fabrics too! And it looks like a beautiful theme for the quilt as well.
    Gosh. Can’t wait to see more!
