One last lunch on the veranda and then on my way home and back to winter.
But it decided to go jet skiing with Keith anyway …lots of fun but harder than I expected. Then we sat out by the pool again.
With lots of these visitors!
We had our last group activity yesterday – a sunset cruise followed by a reception and now a couple days to ourselves.
We try not to let the weather bother us so we’ve been in and out today in between the showers. I managed to finish one book and start another.
And Keith managed to snap a fairly decent photo of me.
It’s not an app but I thought I’d share this find with you. I occasionally come across a blog post or a website that I want to save to refer back to. I can do this with an offline reader on the iPad but for knitting, quilting or crafting projects, I like to stick a PDF file in iBooks.
The PDF format was perfect because I wanted to make sure I save the link to the random stripe generator along with the blog post.
In iBooks I sort my PDF’s by category. I have one for knitting, one for Genealogy, one for quilting, etc.
I receive this email and thought I’d pass along the information in case any of my readers are able to help.
I know you support Quilts of Valor and I wanted to point out to you that they have a special group request for a squadron coming home to Ft. Riley (Kansas) after a tour with many injuries and losses in Afghanistan. They are trying to get close to 400 quilts. Further information including contact information can be found here: http://www.qovf.org/content/quilts-needed.html I wondered whether your group has any quilts they could contribute? I just mailed 8 myself but they are still 200 short. Thank you! Regards, Almut
Absolutely nothing but relaxing and reading!
I’m already on my 3rd book of the trip but I have to confess something. Just before we left I bought a new Kindle Touch. I read a lot on my iPad but when outside, I need the no glare screen of the Kindle. (Yes I already had one but I wanted the Touch). One thing I’ve noticed is that I get through my books much faster on the Kindle because I’m not as tempted to stop reading to check email or a blog or get sidetracked looking something up.
This morning…I was walking outside as a cruise ship floated by.
On our way to St. Thomas allowed us to see the kids.
I just hate to see this … An old quilt cut up and offered in pieces on EBay.
I understand that quilts get worn and I’ve seen some really cute little hearts or dogs made from quilt fragments but I just hate to see quilts cut up and offered for sale in pieces. This one …about 20 inches square for $25.
I’m playing with the new camera today — checking out the video setting. Obviously I was creating some noise while shooting, but the 2nd one was a little better. Now lets see if I can figure out how to embed the video here.
And here’s the 2nd one. Its funny but I think he’s kind of afraid of this toy for some reason I can’t figure out.
I decided to pull out another UFO. These tumblers were a “kit” I cut last spring when I thought we’d be moving but we didn’t and they sat in a baggie all year. I tossed them up on the design wall and got all the rows sewn together … Now I’m going to take a break!
I know it’s busy but I love using my tumbler die to make these I Spy type quilts. I still have a great selection of novelty fabrics thanks to a box of fabric my friend Cecile sent a couple years ago. They’ve been showing up in my donation quilts ever since!
