Can You Tell the Difference?

I am typing this blog post on my fancy-schancy new laptop computer.

Ain't it purdy? My wonderful friend Stephanie came up yesterday to help me get it set up, connected the wireless every things that I have, loaded software, and got me started on creating my system recovery disks (which finally finished up about 11:30 p.m.).

Thank you Stephanie!

Okay, she didn't come up just to help with the computer (she lives about 150 miles aways). Stephanie, Nancy and I also went to the Foothill Quilter's Quilt Show yesterday in Auburn. Alex Anderson was a guest speaker although we did not see her lecture.

We did see lots of beautiful quilts. I love scrappy quilts. Below are a few of my favorites...
Easy, easy strip quilt with Asian fabrics.

Bazillion half square triangles...right up my alley.

And a cheerful floral strip quilt...again easy, easy!

I'm taking the next week off of work but I have a to-do list a mile long. I'm hoping to get lots of quilting and sewing done but the first thing on the list is having the carpets cleaned, including the carpet in the sewing room which means I have to empty it today....wish me luck on that.

Very nice quilts. Thanks for the show. I feel for you. Emptying the sewing room does not sound like fun.

I just love strip quilts too! Easy, easy, and so enjoyable to look at :)
