I opened up my email for the first time in three or four weeks. Guess what! Annie Smith (the quilting podcast lady) emailed me. Me! I am so geeked out.
Anyways. I finished the center quilting of the quilt. I'm on to the border. I decided to go with a simple stitch-in-the-ditch. I'm too lazy to figure anything else out at this point, and I only have a week left.
I might as well state out loud that I have a new blogging goal. Lately I've been reading a lot of other crafty-type blogs (I especially like Angry Chicken) and I've noticed that most other people have a lot more pictures and photos on their blogs. My goal is now to include a picture in every other blog entry at least. I have no new quilt pictures to show, but I do have a picture of the new lamp we bought at Lowe's last week. It was the last one and The Husband had to do some wrangling to get the floor model. It is a bit scratched up but I really love the line of the shade. What do you think?
Notice the super-cute Crate and Barrel basket next to it, as well as kid toys. I've noticed whenever I take a picture in our family room that the walls show up very fuschia-tinted. They aren't. The walls are closer to a brick red.
