Long Time No Blog

I've had a hard time the last week or so managing time and technology 

We're coming up to the hanging of an open exhibit quilt show, which means I'm spending a lot of time figuring out how to arrange some very unrelated pieces together and handling a lot of paperwork

And in the process of transferring a lot of files from the old computer to the new computer, some data on the external hard drive got corrupted so I had to take the drive to the "computer hospital" and get it retrieved --- ACK! (and frankly if it had been anything but the HUNDREDS of pictures of Mr Cute and my art work I would have just tried to live with the loss~)

Along the way I have been working on this piece, and it's coming along nicely

Last night I did the "sandwich" of the beading and the backing around the metal cuff, so this should be done soon

Last week I turned the house upside down looking for the long cable that goes with my knitting needles for the next big project

Finally gave up -- it will reappear in it's own good time -- so I'm knitting on hats for Cheyenne River Reservation until the new cable I just ordered arrives (I figure it's okay to have two long cables anyway)

Time to get busy -- lots of things to do!

Oh, phooey; I was going to send you one of my cables to use, and I totally spaced it. Like you said, though, it can't hurt to have two long cables.
Love the beading!

Love that beading! It's quite similar to an afghan pattern I bought in the last week or two that was finally the inspiration I needed for some yarn that I spun and dyed several years ago and then waited for just the right thing.

That shaping in those colors is just the right thing.

Ah, that's why the beading looked familiar;it's very reminiscent of the Lizard Ridge afghan pattern!

Last comment is not really from sewermonger; he failed to sign out of Google the last time he used my kindle.
