The little post that almost wasn't. Sunday morning our computer died. I was terrified of being seperated from all my friends and favorite blogs. A terrible feeling. It was an agonizing day of trying to get it to work. Nothing to look forward to Monday morning when I awoke. It is my custom to turn on the computer first thing in the morning and enjoy visiting some of my favorite people.
My husband, after working all night, stopped on his way home from work and bought a refurbished tower, after Lindsey hooked it up and some time spent on the phone with tech support, we are now connected with the world again. It is a desolute feeling not being able to reach out to you all.
Before I knew about blogs, I used to enjoy looking at other women's creative work on ebay. It was the only way I knew how. One of my favorite searches was paper piecing. The one name that I revered above all others was a talented artist named Queen of Nostalgia. After I discovered the blog world, I was thrilled to death to learn that she had a blog!
I was the very fortunate winner of a give away that she had last week. Aren't these little houses and a tree she made beautiful?!
I am so proud of them. She has an etsy shop where she sells her awesome paper pieced items for scrapbooking.
Thank you Queen of Nostalgia!
I don't mind telling you that this little dog has me wrapped around his little paw.
He is precious in every way.
As the heat of the summer has hit with a vengence, I am not inclined to go outside and walk! Yes, for all my Big talk, I am still a wienie. I have come up with a plan, a path around my house that is very comfortable and at the same time I am getting in just as much walking, if not more, than I did outside! Our floor plan allows for an easy route around the living room, through the kitchen, into the family room and out through the sunroom, bringing me back to the living room. I have walked 91 miles now. I hope Deb is planning the menu for when I arrive!
I am wishing you all a beautiful week! Twyla
