Periodically I delete the majority of my bloglines links out of frustration. I love seeing what everyone is doing but find I spend more and more time on the computer and that of course is less time spent quilting. So last week I deleted most the entries and decided I’d visit blogs from comments left on my blog and go around the blog rings once or twice a month.
Last night as I went around the Stash Quilts blog ring I came across a post on Susan’s blog (Feb 16th post) that inspired me to pull a finished quilt to send to American Hero Quilts.
Somehow along the way, I must have clicked on a link for the Quilt Mavericks blog ring and I was on Darcie’s blog reading about crochet and decided to pull out my crochet hooks – when I went looking for yarn, I found this magazine and fleece that I’d intended to crochet an edging on – that should be a quick project.
As long as I was packing for shipping, I decided I’ll pull all my flannel leftover bits that I’d agreed to send Bob, a HeartStrings member to use on donation quilts. With an upcoming move it will be good to have this crate emptied.
My printer was dying so I bought a new one yesterday (Epson RX595) – not sure I’m crazy about it – it’s louder for one thing BUT I do love the scanning features on it. I can scan and save the document as a PDF file – which came in handy when I had to email a couple signed documents yesterday to the realtor. It’s also a photo printer – which my other one wasn’t. I missed being able to print one or two photos since my small photo printer died a year ago.
Finally, I scanned a image from the above magazine. They had a neat case for crochet hooks that is very much like the crayon rolls that I’ve seen on several blogs. Deb made a couple for her granddaughters and was going to make Adam one for his drawing pencils – I emailed her the photo hoping she’ll make me one too.
