I was able to get a few things done over the weekend and still have time to play.
I cut out & pasted my words "Quilt & Sew". I haven't gotten them hung up on the wall in my sewing room yet - I think it's a two person job... I will have to enlist help.
On Sunday we did make it over to the lake for lunch. Now, it really isn't about the food so much as the nostalgia and the fact that it's your duty as a local to go! Simple as that.
Yes the food is good to, but how often do you get excited about ordering a hamburger?
It's really like stepping back in time to the late 50's or early 60's and being a part of something simple and part of a small community. Does that make any sense?
The lake is really quite still and the water level isn't very high... (the picture in the last post was from last year). The boats aren't even allowed in their mooring spot until April 1st. So the docks are empty. Of course we don't get ours because of the dam work (hehe) they are doing... the water level will be kept lower and our spot was nixed for a couple years. I wrote about it last year. In a nutshell... we were on the wait list for 13 years. Got a spot for our little boat. The next year California decides it needs to do dam work and we're back out again!
Now what I am really excited about is to tell you that I spent Saturday with Camille from Thimble Blossoms... well, OK, I'm fabricating a bit... what I mean is that I spent Saturday making this Jelly Filled pattern by Thimble Blossoms.
What a fun pattern- a no stress project! I enjoyed the process and the
instant gratification! Now I still have to add the borders to it, but then it's done/ready to quilt!
Today, just as I was feeling like I was making good progress at work my computer crashed.
The ripple effect started. (is it effect or affect?)
My iTunes were on there and photos yada yada yada...
I ordered a new computer... and we'll see what can be salvaged. Keep your fingers crossed!
