Monday greetings to all......I have been living "off the grid" for a few months, some of it totally unintentional! An injury, retirement, and the usual daily "stuff" have all kept me busy and away from quilting. We discontinued our landline and got new smart phones which I do love and I also love no constant phone calls on the landline. However, my website email was dropped due to an office error at my IP, and I didn't know it, so I've missed quite a lot of communications from all this.
After some phone calls to right the situation, my email is working again, my website is back online, and I purchased some new software so perhaps I will be able to update that once again, and add current tips and info. It's hard for me to believe I've even had a website for so many years. Stay tuned!
Even when I haven't been quilting, my quilter's eye is seeing the world from a point of view always affected by my love of color and design. The drape and color of Oliver's tail on a magenta pillow, so beautiful, placed just right for the correct proportion, or the colors of the summer sky at dusk, how beautiful. These things remind me of quilts and the delights of working with fabric, thread, color.
Every now and again I browse through my FB page and see the incredible quilts and work so many of you are doing. Quilting is going forward with new ideas and designs and I congratulate all the quilters who are sharing their work and tips and ideas, keeping it all alive.

Meanwhile, today there is the outside trim on the garage door to scrape and paint, another rainstorm might prevent that though, boxes of old files and papers to sort and prepare for shredding, and some great shows I've recorded on PBS await me this evening. I love the new "Poldark" series.....
Hope all of you can keep quilting! Your work gets better everyday.....
