Wow, its good to be back. It's almost been 11 days since my last post. I had been having a lot of trouble commenting on other blogs and suddenly nothing was working with my computer. I soon realized I had a horrible virus and after hours and hours on the phone I finally gave up and called someone to come over to help. That person spent hours on our computer and it seems to be upgraded, updated, and virus free. I am also backed up which I quickly learned is a very important thing to be doing.
That being said, I LOVE dates to remember, and today is a special one. Every year our house gets excited for the day that has the three same numbers. I have a friend who had a baby on 9-9-9, and have very fond memories of 10-10-10. Today was a fun day too!
I've finished 11 more hexie flowers for the Vignette hexagon quilt. I'm getting so excited, I'm almost to 100 flowers so the end is in sight. I still have plenty of hexies basted and the weather is cold so they should be finished soon.
This is a fun project I found at allsorts. The pattern is free and it is an advent calendar. I still have to embroider the dates and put buttons on them. I have 11 finished and hopefully there will be 25 pockets. If not, we will do the 12 days of Christmas.
I also found this free download at allsorts. As you can see, I'm really enjoying this new blog I found.
During this unexpected "time away" I realized something...I really enjoy this blog. It is so nice receiving comments and emails about the things we love doing, and I truly missed interacting with everyone. I'm back, and hopefully this computer will give us a couple more years of uninterrupted service. Enjoy the last little bit of 11-11-11...and happy Veteran's Day to all those who have fought for our freedoms wherever in this world that may have taken them. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching! --Kristen
