My computer is sick and has had to go to the hospital. Not sure exactly what I did – but my hard drive has been ‘fried’ and I’ve had to send it to be fixed. Talk about withdrawal! I feel as though I have been out of touch with everyone this past week. No email or IM. Do I really have to use the phone or snail mail to keep in touch? Finally I came upon a solution – I ‘fired up’ an old laptop. It’s a bit slow – but beats the alternative.
So now I can also post on my blog again. We spent the weekend at Thompson Lake State Park (near Albany, NY). After the art fair in Albany on Saturday, we were able to spend some time camping, kayaking and hiking in the area.
Of course I made sure that I spent time quilting. Working on the Redwork Beauty applique by Betty Alderman Designs.
I like the portability of needle turn and redwork. I guess I was lucky in that my first quilting instructor got me hooked on needle turn with her “easy” method. It is a great way to relax and accomplish something at the same time. And it’s so portable. I can easily work on the piece as we tow our camper or at the campground itself.
This time of the year is especially beautiful in upstate New York. The leaves are just beginning to show their Fall beauty and the weather is still warm enough to be able to sit outside the camper and quilt!
The greatest use of a life is to spend it on something that will outlast it. William JamesThere is always time to quilt!
