Quilts & Trip to Asia

This morning I gave up and got out of bed at 6 am. I have way too many things on my brain. Yesterday I picked up my tickets from the travel agent... yaaaayyy!!!! Then I went to Curry's Art Supply and bought journals so Doris & I can make an artsy-fartsy record of our trip. I really need to pay better attention to Flylady (see links in the sidebar). It took me half an hour to find my stamps and stamp pad. Nuts!! I used them just last month for the postcard workshop, so I kept thinking "how far could the buggers have gone????". Definitely need to do a 27 fling boogie at my earliest opportunity. I hope to make lovely fabric covers for the journals but I don't know if I will have time before I leave Thursday.

Hubby and I went to the movies - Clint Eastwood's new release Gran Torino. Good movie, classic Clint Eastwood where he plays the neighbourhood cowboy (he wears the white hat).

On Friday I sent off these two quilts to the QOV program. I've also sent a press release to the local rags so we should get some publicity.

Here is the pretty pink quilt I was working on last week. All done, blocks fixed and in their proper positions.

I love bright quilts - I had a little fun with this one, quilting it up with echoed (sp?) hearts.

And here's a lovely scrappy beauty made with batiks.

My commentary today is Blogger and their piss-poor photo upload. The green QOV photo was uploaded three times before it actually appeared on the blog. Three!! This happens all the time - with every single post. Queries to their 'help' people made me feel like singing that song I learned as a kid:
nobody likes me,
everybody hates me,
going to the garden to eat worms, yum yum yum,
big fat juicy ones,
little skinny slimy ones,
itsy bitsy teeny weeny worms, yum yum.
