Back and glad of it!!!

Well, my computer is all better now, the guy who worked on it finally had to just wipe it clean and I lost almost all of my files. I did forget to get him to save the files for my Pampered Chef business. I am glad I have them on the other computer, but I did have a show after I moved them to this one. The other computer is really not able to be used because it is so slow. I tried to use it to keep up with all of you, but that just didn't happen. I am so glad to be back though so lets just go on with this and forget the mess I have had to deal with.
I have pictures and I am working so hard on several things that I am very proud of. I will photo them when they are complete and share them with you. Until then let me share with you the pictures I have of the things I am making for the craft fair.
Wait first let me tell you what has happened in case I have not gotten to yet. My children gave their father a trip to Las Vegas for his 60th birthday and I get to go too. I am so excited because we leave in a week. Of course that is also putting me on the line with getting the craft fair stuff completed.
Where do I start with the pictures? I guess I will start with the big picture. I added my cell phone for perspective. These cute little bags are for gift cards or money gifts. They can be hung on the tree or you can gift wrap them. The coffee sleeves are thermal, and they can be used for cool or warm. The thermal part keeps your hands cool or warm as the case may be.  There is so much to show, but for today I will leave it at this.
Happy Quilting, Tennye

Computer Problems Still

I have borrowed my daughters computer again so I wanted to let you know that I still have no computer so I will be back as soon as I can. I had a friend look at it and he got it working, we thought. Then after just one day it was right back to where it was before. I am sad, that it is taking so much time, and we will get it up and running soon.
I am off to the quilting room now, and hope you all have a lovely quilting day.

Computer Issues

Well, I have wanted to post some photos and to add a new post, but for what ever reason my computer is acting up. I am not able to log in to most websites. It has been so crazy that when I finally got the chance to borrow a computer it took me about three hours to check all of my emails and facebook and twitter. Wow I feel like I have not accomplished what I need to because of that. I will post pictures when I get my computer running again. So if I seem to not be posting that and the fair I am getting ready for may be the reason. I love some of the quilts I am making for the fair, and can't wait to share them with you all.
I love the comments I get from you, so please keep on posting.
Happy quilting

In a Nut Shell

Well, I have to say that in a nut shell the entire line up of day time TV that I have been looking over is basically awful. I guess they started a new season because I was not bothered by the stuff I was watching up until this week. I think that some of the stations have been bought out by each other. Because that annoying thing of the same show on all day is happening on another of the stations I watch. That said, I will move on.
So I guess you can tell I have been sewing and I feel pretty good about this. I am going to complete the Birthday blocks today. I won't mail them until they are due but will have them complete. I feel so guilty because I have some that are way past due. One I thought was made and ready to mail, then she posted photos of the ones she had and I was mortified that mine would not match and would stand out like a sore thumb. Needless to say I have remade that one and she will get both. I guess either I got the instructions wrong or everyone else did. I am gonna guess it was me since all of the others matched.
Do you ever get the feeling that if you would just slow down you could get more done? I find that making mistakes takes so much time to fix that I almost would rather just cut out more fabric than try to un-sew it and fix it. It frustrates me.
Well, I promised photos the other day and I still have not gotten out the cables to up load them so maybe tomorrow.
Happy Quilting,

Coming to terms with Change

Hi, to all, I have been MIA for a couple of weeks and didn't even realize it had been that long. Things have changed in my life yet again. I am no longer teaching at the Cotton Cupboard. I am still writing classes for the on line group I am with," Quilting" My name is not always on my classes because of the way things have to be set up on the back end of the site, but I am there never the less. I will be adding a couple of classes in the next few months so if you were thinking you might like to have a class for a Christmas gift be sure to let your loved ones know they can do that for you.
I am not sure why, but I have had more health issues this year than I have in several years. Not the least is these migrains that have come back. I went several years without one, and about three years ago the started coming back and were mild, and not often. Then the last few weeks I have had them slam me. Maybe they will go away again, now. I hope!!!!
I have some great new stuff made that I told you about in Sept. and I will post some pictures of them soon. I have some other things ready to be quilted, that I will work on soon, but will show you photos as they are when I get them off the camera.
We are in the middle of the birthday marathon. It starts in Sept. and goes until Christmas, but Oct. and Sept. are the busiest, with Emily, Charlie,and an aunt and four cousins, and a neice. Then we start Oct. with a bang with my FIL, Aften, mother, and my granddaughter. Nov. is Jenn, Brena, and two nephews. Then Dec. is my other granddaughter. I am trying hard to get things for all of them and working on the part of Christmas that I love most and that is stockings. I start shopping for the stockings as soon as Christmas is over. Well I guess I am trying to make up for lost time, and I will just stop for now and try not to be so long between posts this month.
Happy quilting,
