Fabric Fondling

One of the Thursday Night Quilt Ladies has a very prolific family. There are two babies expected in the New Year. Neither of the couples care for really traditional quilts which kind of makes me happy. Not that I don't like the traditional baby stuff, but I would like to make a quilt in one of the non-traditional patterns that Amanda makes on her wonderful blog Crazy Mom Quilts.
I like the coin quilt she is showing now and, frankly, I like everything she does. A few days ago she even took some tiny pieces and just sewed them down to a background and it looks so cute. Can't really get much easier than that.
I went to the local quilt shop(I love saying that) and found the focus fabric on sale and we just wandered around and found these two additions to it in the store. I have a couple of others that I will throw in and, easy peasy, Baby Quilt #1
I haven't got a clue for the second yet. Maybe I should just make another with similar fabric.
So, there you have it. I will un-earth my machine and hope it's still working well. I just really need to sew something. You understand...right. Room or no room, In need to make something!!

Roger went to work today. That Z-pak stuff is a wonder. He went from really awful to pretty darn good in two days. I think a few nights of sleep un-interrupted by coughing will help a lot as well.
Chicken Enchiladas for dinner. Gotta go feed the crew.

Firefox rules!!

Hallelujah and thanks to all of you. I switched to Firefox and it immediately allowed me to open blogs and stuff I haven't been able to. I'll be back later. Right now I have a sick hubby who needs some attention and I could use a little sleep myself. Poor Roger was coughing so hard during the night he was choking. Finally went to the Dr. this morning. Since he is at risk for serious problems stemming from this bronchial stuff-they wrote him n Rx for a Z-pak and some serious cough meds. I'm sure he'll be out cold by this afternoon.
Again, thanks all for the tips.
By the way, I got paint yesterday-it's called Sliced cucumber-very clean and pretty neutral. As soon as my patient is better I'll paint. Don't want to add any paint smells to the already painful sinus & bronchial issues.

And yet, more

I have noticed that a few people are complaining about Blogger and all the glitches. Such things as loosing your entire blog and not being able to post and some other freaky stuff. Maybe that's part of my problem. Maybe there's just too much crap with computers and blogs. Don't know. I'm sick of dealing with it and I've had my crack staff try the things that you've been kind enough to suggest. Here's the problem now. I have several blogs that I've been reading for a number of years. I can't even open them. The computer freezes and I get a message that says Microsoft Internet Explorer is not responding, blah, blah, blah. Also, when I go to a blog and they have a link I cannot open the link without it freezing everything and I have to close the whole thing.
Have I mentioned that I really hate computers and I think they are a plot by some un-named foreign country to make us all babbling morons. If so, mission accomplished.
I'm going to Tarjay, Home Despot, and possibly a stop at the quilt shop to see what's up because, seriously, there could be things I haven't seen and need desperately(har) that could take my mind off of the time-sucking, pain in the ass computer issues. What? You want me to hang around cleaning the house or something useful??? Nice try! Wish me luck
