Getting Lost in Blogland

Does anyone else do this... start traveling through the mavericks ring and then accidentally find yourself in the midst of the stash busting ring or some other? I could wander through rings forever and not know what happened.

I'm posting a picture of my mom. Doesn't she look great? Guess how old she is! I bet you won't guess that she will be 86 in two months. It's true! I think she looks much younger than 86. This was taken on Christmas Day. She looks happy and youthful. I want to go visit her and play a game of Scrabble with her. I never win, because she's a Scrabble professional.

Nothing new in the quilty front. I'm back at work after my nice break and haven't had time to sew this week. What does one do with all the ideas and sewing motivation in one's head when there is no time to produce?! Maybe I'll take my sewing machine to work. Wonder what the boss would say.........

Hey Carol

Your mum looks great! Just like you. I get lost in blog land all the time. There are heaps of neat blogs to read and drool over the pictures. It's like having our own quilt show every day!

I do that all the time. Start going around one ring and all of a sudden find myself clicking around a different one.

Thank you for offering to make a couple Heartstrings blocks for my birthday. You don't have your email address listed on your blog profile so if you could email me at blogmail@nancyquilts.com I'll get the directions and mailing address out to you.

I think your mother looks young because she looks so happy. I hope I can look/be that happy at 86.

That's why I could never work from home! Too much distraction from all the stitching I'd want to do! It's hard enough to focus here at work and drag myself away from the blogs after my break is over.

I do that all the time when I wander the rings. I have to keep repeating to myself "click the Stash quilts icon!" I'm glad I'm not the only one who does this!

Carol - I do that with the blogrings all the time :o)

Your mum looks terrific for her age - hope I look half that good

As for ideas and inspiration when having no chance to stitch - keep an ideas book - it only needs to be a small one in your handbag - jot the notions down as they occur to you and then you have a host of inspiration when you get round to stitching and can't think what to make
