Look out, here it comes.
For the rest of the east coast, it's headed your way as soon as it leaves Florida.

I can't believe another whole month has gone by and it was time for Glenda's bee again. I'm so glad I decided to start going to her bees. Spending a few hours with like minded ladies, talking and laughing with no discussion of anything negative. For at least a few hours a month I am assured of getting out of my constant funk.
A long time quilter has passed away and her daughter has been coming to the bees with box loads of fabric and notions. This is the third time I have seen her and there is always a frenzy when she arrives. This time I managed to check out her stash as it was being taken out of the boxes. It wasn't an easy task but I did manage to grab (and I do mean grab) these wonderful fabrics.

I have run out of room in my studio and have no idea where I'm going to stash these beauties. But at a dollar a yard how can I pass up such a good deal. I asked if she had more and her reply was "Oooooohh Yes". I guess I'll have to bring more cash next time.

Gingerbread Houses

I have been selling alot of blocks the last two weeks. Gekkos, Christmas Presents and the Halloween Night Witch keep selling every time I list a new set. In addition, I have had several custom orders keeping me quite busy. I did however manage to make something new and different, Gingerbread Houses.

Let's hope they are as popular as the rest of my blocks.

I am not really all that computer literate, in fact I don't understand half of what I'm doing. It was a few years ago when I first started reading blogs. I discovered Bloglines and it has worked out great for me all this time. I kept adding and subtracting blogs and currently stand at around 84 blogs listed. Bloglines would tell me when these blogs had new postings and show them to me without even visiting the blog.
But now they say that they are closing down as of October 1, 2010. I followed the online instructions and added my list to the feeds listings that came with my computer. But frankly, I have now clue how to add to this list or what I'm doing. There is one blog in particular that has changed her address and  I have to visit the old address to get to the new address because I can't figure out how to fix it.
HELP, what do you use? Is there something out there that is as simple as Bloglines?
