iphoto is mean

I have not been able to load any new images onto this computer.  What can it mean?  iPhoto keeps closing down and asking if I want to send a report to apple.  Hell, yeah.  What’s happening apple?  Apple does not respond.  Tomorrow I will venture into the apple store which should be about as much fun as going to verizon.  Or the dentist.  Or the local german sausage factory.  Someone once said that for those who love politics and sausage, it is recommended to never watch either being made.  Amen.  I know, I’m getting off track.

DSCN9410I knit this dear little sweater from Miss Babs supewash.  The buttons are courtesy of my BFF’s closed yarn shop.  It is tiny and will probably fit the baby for about five minutes.  But those will be five styling minutes!DSCN9412The Spider Web block to the right is a very important one.  It is, in fact, the most important one that I’ve made because it COMPLETES my quilt.  Two years in the making and finally, I have what the English like to call a ‘flimsy’.  Mine is not so flimsy as it is weighed down with about 15 tons of paper.  I peeled paper for five hours last night and didn’t even put a dent in the job.  I may have to lay off paper piecing for a bit. At LEAST until the cracks in my fingers heal!  Did I mention how much I love this quilt?DSCN9411

I am short on content today, so I’ll conclude with my latest find – hidden down an obscure aisle in JoAnn’s, someone discarded this bolt and I happened upon it and for reasons unknown, fell head over heels.  It’s that way with fabric for me.  If it doesn’t speak my language I’ll walk on by.  DSCN9414I want to make aprons, little girl sleeveless dresses, jammies, a lined raincoat … I’m going back tomorrow to see if the bolt is still there.

For those who have so kindly inquired about my dear darling dog, thank you.  Harley is having good days, mostly.  He is slowing down, but I am happy to say that his spirit and his appetite have not.  This afternoon he did an elaborate roll in the grass, snout first, headed down the knoll.  Watching him kick all of his legs in the spring air made my heart sing.

    Congratulations on your finished spiderweb ! I was throughly enjoying your pictures when I was hit by a pang of remorse – I have about 35 – 8.5″ string blocks buried somewhere in my sewing room. Instead of using paper I had been sewing the strings onto something recommended in the book “String Quilt Revival”, I forget what it’s called but I like it 🙂 That little sweater is sooo cute and the buttons are perfect.

      now come on Colleen! Get those blocks out and get busy! Imagine how much you will enjoy your Spider when finished! I’m going to use mine until it shreds! I wish I had sewed mine onto something that didn’t need to be removed. It’s a huge awful job. From now on I will use a thinner paper.
