HOME AGAIN


I arrived home from Arizona late last night. Now I have to adjust to the three hour time change. Ugh! First thing I did was sleep till 11:00am Eastern time. Second thing was to throw in a load of laundry. and third--well, here I am! Back in blogland! My computer is as slow as I am today. But at least it is working. My son's phone, cable and internet connection was out before I left. He has the Cox package for all three. So if one goes out, they all go out. We have Cox for our cable TV connection and every time it goes out it is because a repairman was working on someone elses installation and disconnected ours! That has happened a dozen times. Next time it happens it will be bye-bye Cox. My son said there was a Cox repair truck working down the street from his house. What do you want to bet...
That darling girl in the photo is my Arizona granddaughter. She is a cutie! Almost 11 years old. The quilt is a log cabin design by Alice Berg that was in American Patchwork and Quilting a few years ago. I enlarged it to fit a queen size bed. It has little stars at the intersections. You would think I would get sick of red, white and blue, but I never seem to. Thanks for all your nice comments on my eagle, by the way. Those of you outside of America probably get sick of seeing "God Bless America", but it seems we need it more and more! Maybe we should come up with a new slogan, like "God Bless Our Patchwork World"! Any suggestions out there?
Along that same international thought, I found my signature blocks here from Cynthia in Australia when I got home. Wow, I can't believe all the countries represented! It is wonderful! Many added their blog address to their block, which I wish I had done. I will have to go through and see who I can find on line. Thanks to everyone who participated and a big thanks to Cynthia for doing all the work!
I suppose I should go now and do #4 on my list today: UNPACK I hate that part.

Marci - I missed you AGAIN????? How did that happen??? If you've read my blog then you know that life has been full of challenges lately - maybe that's how I missed you! We will make a date the next time you come to Arizona - I promise to take you to lunch!!!

Oh... another siggie swap people! Will you be showing us your creation? I do hope so! Keep well!

Your granddaughter is adorable... and her quilt's mighty fine, too! I never get tired of red, white and blue either... guess what? That combination was our wedding colors back in 1975!! Welcome back home again.

Red white and blue are Australia's colours too, so I'm not sick of them for one. I've never made a patriotic quilt, but I have two little Aussie flags that Mum used to hang outside her house on Australia Day which I plan to incorporate into a design some day.

Your eagle top just sparkles! So does your lovely granddaughter and that quilt she's resting on. I guess I have one of your siggies since I participated in Cynthia's swap, too. Haven't been home to really check it out.

Such a sweet looking granddaughter. I bet she's a real joy!

Beautiful granddaugher! Mesa is a pretty nice place to grow up, too. Did you get to any of the fabulous quilt shops in the area? I hope you did!

The eagle quilt is great. I never get tired of God Bless America. =)
