and I think I'll live.  Some guy hacked and coughed right behind me all the way from Seattle, and he won.  I've been sick since Tuesday and today I'm finally feeling a little better.  needless to say, no quilting has been done:( or housework!  I did do some ironing --two shirts, rest 15 minutes, two shirts, rest.....I hate not having any energy!  I like feeling good when I do nothing! So I'll try to get my house in a semblance of order today..........

was fun as usual.  DH got his new eyeball--now before anyone freaks out, he has an ocular prosthesis that he has replaced periodically. So we have a collection of eyeballs!!
There is a store called All Saints downtown that features steam punk clothing and accessories that has an absolutely fabulous display of antique sewing machines.  I was in hog heaven!!  Look at this---an antique long arm??!!  Click on the photo to see this up close! (On the right you can see a couple of the machines in the window) Will post more photos tomorrow

Here's what's happening at my house---fun,huh?!?  I'm staying as far away as possible, tho sometimes I am required to hand over a tool, or a paper towel!  Very different from my dated stenciled strawberries and sliding glass doors--this will look wonderful when finished.  Now I'm on the hunt for the perfect shower curtain!

Off again

Am leaving for the airport in 20 minutes--off to Seattle with DH.  Hoping the rain holds off!  I'll be back in a week, hopefully with fabulous photos to share.

Glass art

from found items.  A quilting friend and general crafty person made a few of these using various glass objects, and I had to have this GREEN one!  Besides a glass vase and glass candle plate, I think part of the top is a headlight, or it might be a light bulb?!?  Anyway, I love it!!

UFO done

This has  been languishing in my tops done pile for awhile, so thought I'd try a new panto out on it.  So, it is finished--finally!
