New Blogger!

I'm really excited about some updates on Blogger, so I'll be experimenting for a few days. Yes, well, in between projects. I like the label option because it makes it easier to select between my different crafts.

My Dad unexpectedly had surgery earlier this week. He came home from the hospital today, but gets readmitted early in January for a second procedure. So far so good. Hopefully, when all is done he will have a lot more pep than he's had this past year.

Kittens also require a good deal more attention for proper socialization. They are determined to play rather than rest in your arms to be petted. So far, NOBODY is a lap cat.

I have quilted the borders of the Paddlewheel Quilt and sewn together the quilted strips. I've gone with the idea of using sashing to connect the main part with the borders and cornerstones. Just making sure I have enough to do so without buying more fabric.

In crochet, I've been working on squares for an online swap (#74 cherry red and white) that I joined. Received some of the squares already. I'm making 2 different squares: one uses the same flower pattern I made for Mom's afghan. Haven't decided on the second yet.

Hi Stephanie
I stopped by to say hello!! and I like your blog.
Did you update your template??
I want to, but after I get the pocket tissue covers done, for the ladies where we bank at.
I hope you have a nice weekend.

No Carol. Haven't updated my template yet. I'm trying to determine if I only need to copy my buttons (seems to take all the other links fine). I love the labels though! It will take me awhile, but I plan to relabel many entries. Then I gotta figure out how to add a listing of the labels!
