Some Assembly Required

Yesterday we bought a patio swing. I brought it home while dh started off on his weekend. It took me 2.5 hours to put together. I was really looking forward to sitting out on the deck today in the swing and enjoying the peace and quiet. About midnight it started to rain and it is still raining. So maybe tomorrow afternoon I can sit in the swing if it is dried out by then. If not there is always Monday which is supposed to be very nice around here.
Today was spent in the quilt room putting Big Mama (my new Accuquilt Studio Cutter) together and testing her out and then getting the quilt in the machine quilted. I didn't get a picture before I packed the quilt  up to get it ready to mail.

Contrary To the Rumor

I know you thought I had dropped of the face of the earth, but that rumor is false. The weather warmed up in Idaho and spring has sprung. We have been making raised bed gardens around the trees, hauling dirt and gravel (mostly dh) and I have been working in the quilt room trying to get some of the small pieces turned into blocks so I have bigger things to lose. I have a couple of quilts to finish making for a customer, a couple of quilts  to quilt for other customers and I need to get back on track with my UFO 2012 challenge.

Dh has spent the last couple of days getting his camper ready to take for his guitar playing weekend in Hammett, ID this weekend.  Once I get a breather in the quilt room I need to make him some new curtains for his windows. Thought I'd make them out of muslin ( unless I can find some chili pepper material) and embroider a guitar on the corner of each of them.

So I'll try to do better at the posting, and keeping things up to date.
