Bloggy Business

OK, so I realized that all those old knitting posts had links back to the long defunct Geocities for photos, so I just erased all that. If anyone ever wants to see something, let me know and I'll take a new pic LOL. But I think no one ever reads any of this as I haven't been very good about posting. SO, in that vein, I have decided to join NaBloPoMo for the month of June. The idea is to post every day for a month, to get yourself in the habit of posting. Lord knows I have been up to enough crafty, arty, creative endeavors to fill any blog!! But getting them down in type and taking pics and getting them uploaded, well, that's been a real challenge for me. So I am throwing down the gauntlet here and letting the wind take it where it will! Hope to see you all again soon.

What I Have Been Up To Lately

Just some random things I have been doing.....

Nothing beats homemade bagels! Gives you lots of energy for crafting LOL. I have been making a lot of cards lately, and I just finished a set of quilt blocks for a swap. I need to work on getting much better at my accuracy on piecing, though....a lot of the patterns I would like to do in the future are even harder and I had trouble with that star. The centers started out fine and I sort of lost it as I worked out toward the edges. I pieced it using my Singer 66-1 treadle, which was cool. And lastly, after two years of training, I FINALLY got rocket speed on Virus Buster!! 3135 is now my best score WOO HOO!!!!
