I'm Back....For A Minute

I am just popping in from my son's computer to post a pic of my 4 Season's Swap I recieved from Grace. I was just thrilled with it. It is called Snowballs and Stars. The gold must have been very difficult to work with. It is hand quilted beautifully. I can't crop or fix photos from here because I don't want to mess up Bud and Rachel's computer...you know that can happen with me. I have kept very busy since I have had no computer, but I really miss all my favorite blogs. I hope to be back soon. The mother board on my computer needs to be replaced...UGH!!! I really hope we can do it soon. Postive thoughts!
Here is a little of what I have been up to...Some 9-patch play... Some fabric shopping.... Oh, and some room arranging...I'll save the entire thing for another post, but here is a pic of my new hand sewing/reading spot. A clue...the kids were evicted AGAIN, but from another spot in the house! And of course here is the promised "after" shot of my sewing room closet... Well, I have a limited time here, so I want to pop in on a couple of blogs. I wish it was to catch up, but I need to copy a couple of recipes. Shepherd's Pie from Niki, and Chicken and Stuffing Casserole from Coppers Wife. I hope to catch up soon. It is possible I will be online on Wednesday, if I can get an old computer hooked up until my custom motherboard is in.
Here is my current read...I am so looking forward to it. If any one else out there has read it, let me know what you think.

A minute is better than nothing at all.
You did a great job on the closet. I wish I could be motivated to do something with my sewing area.
Hope you will be back for good soon.

I went to my first quilting class last week. I learned several reason I was having trouble learning to use the rotary cutter. We had homework! Thank goodness we had tomorrow off because I had so much going on I'll be lucky to get it all done. Also, I tried out the new Bernina and I've ordered mine. They make it so easy to pay for it with 12 months same as cash. I'll post some of my recent work soon.

Your swap mini is beautiful! I can't imagine working with that gold fabric!

I love your nine-patches, they look PERFECT.

WHERE is that spot in your house?? I'm trying to picture where in the world that would be, LOL. Oh wait...in the "new" little living room?

Yay for you on getting SO much done!
Love ya,
