Second thoughts on spring

After the last post exuding such happiness about the warmer weather, the downside of the oncoming summer here in the Mid South is the invasion of airborne vermin. Mosquitoes!!!!
They have arrived!


For the first time in forever, we are having a nice long spring. We are getting much more rain than last year too. Beautiful warm days between the rainy ones and cool evenings. Lots of sweater weather which Memphians love because of the rarity. The plants and trees are happy too. Their blooms are lasting longer and the foliage is lush. The true sign is spring is the neighbors hanging out on porches and front stoops.
What's not to love about spring.

R & R

Wednesday was a very good day. Road trip with gal pals to the big show in Paducah. Fabric shopping, vendor food, quilts all around. What a great day.
Of course we went to the Yeiser Art Center for the Fantastic Fiber show. Such a wonderful exhibit but then the Yeiser always has something new and exciting to offer. Fantastic Fibers is up til May 4 so if you are in the area this is a must see.
The AQS quilt show was fun. I hadn't been in a few years so I needed to go and was happy to be in such good company. Took lots of photos and got tons of inspiration for future projects.

Testing again

So now I am posting from the iPod. Gradually I will catch up with the 21st century. It's a process.

New challenges

A couple of weeks ago I got an email from one of the peeps about a group of like minded artists who are making art quilts inspired by Beatles song titles. So of course I responded and got the song title I wanted "She's Got the Devil in Her Heart". Yay! I have an idea and am thinking about how it will come to being. Just the right thing to clear my current creative block. This is going to be fun.
In addition, I have signed up for a surface design challenge too. Busy in a good way. Stay tuned.

Testing 123

This is to try out the app recently downloaded to my iPhone. We didn't get the flying cars we were promised as children but smartphones are a pretty good second.

A quick update on the iron situation, because I know you all are holding your collective breath over whether I was having to send the new one back or not!!! It's staying here to become my new favorite, I hope.
  I called Wawak the other day (Tuesday I think) and talked to the nicest person at customer service. By the way, ALL the customer service people there are VERY nice and helpful. When I told her the problem I was experiencing, she asked if I had removed the blue sticker covering the LCD display. WHAT?? Just peel it off...okay....duh! So we both had a good laugh and she says it happens all the time with this particular iron. We laughed some more and I suggested the instructions should have that on the first page. She agreed and we laughed a little more, I said thank you VERY MUCH, she said you're welcome and we both got on with our respective day. Which I must say was a pretty good day, considering how crazy my life is right now.
