Have you seen this place before: http://www.wowio.com/index.asp
I have downloaded several quilting books---entirely free! I and very happy with downloading the Spellbinding book, being it's paper-piece patterns-so I don't have to scan my own pages to print out now (and I do own a hard copy of that book). I recommend this sight for free ebooks.
Now for more pictures....where to start?
First, here are some of my birthday blocks I have received from a swap I'm part of:
And here's my Block of the Month I did in 2007 and sent to a friend to quilt in December. She free motioned 90% of it (using templates for the plain blocks). I need to add borders, but it's AWSOME and on my bed right now :) Even created 2 pillow cases to match (thank goodness for stash). It's 80" x 100". Now to make the binding and get it on and a label. Click on the image to see a slideshow with the details.
And my other quilter- a long armer in WV - called me on Friday to tell me my 2 quilts are done! And only $140 later for both, which are large lap sizes! I pick them up on the 30th! I'm feeling accomplished finally after all these years of making tops. I plan to give the quilter 2 more to play with, but they won't be back until end of June. I wish I could find someone who is more local and can turn around a quilt in 3-4 weeks.
I also got my Designer 1 back from the service people in Cleveland, Ohio---2 weeks! WOW...I haven't set it up to try to see if it works right now, but will do that soon!
So, on the eve of my date of birth, again I don't feel any older--well, except for the aching bones and the extra gray hair and wanting to sleep 8 hours every night--I have no exciting plans for the week, but do have a birthday dinner date with my friend Sati and pedicures!! YAH! First ones of the season...I'm ready to wear flip flops all the time!
I think I'm caught up now....so, it's back to work tomorrow.
