This is my "new" word for the rest of this year at least---BELIEVE--and the first thing I am

going to "believe" in is that I will have some time to actually quilt this MONTH and that I will get some of the Christmas projects completed this month--(ok now you can quit laughing!!!) AND and second thing I believe in is that I will be able to learn how to use the newest baby--which by the way, my new computer needs a name--any good ideas out there (besides---trouble, confusion and headache)?????? Here's some pictures of the New Baby-----
And here she is in all her glory---
And I believe this new toy will give all my blogging friends some great photo's to look at--once I get the software downloaded in the new computer--
Wonder if my photos will still come out bleary--it has an anti shake mode--but will that mean no blurry pictures????

Now I did get the hand work done on ONE Christmas project today and here it is:
And here is a close up of Sunbonnet Sue:
I now have to sew some blocks together for the border to go around it--maybe next week I will have more time?????
This series in the blues I ordered on line and they came in yesterday--I just love them and can't wait to use them--what am I going to make with them--if only "I" knew??????

And I just fell in love with this line at the Quilt shop in Ithaca, that I told you about that I went to on Sunday--the bottom piece is a tree skirt--it has a row of Birdhouse and birds going around it , and then at the bottom is a row of mittens with birds in them---SOOOOO cute--the ones on the top are to go with the tree skirt and probably a table runner or placemats????

Now I also got some fall fabric and patterns there--but you will just have to "wait" until another day to see those--can't show all my "goodies" in one day!!!!!

happy stitching and remember that "our" summer here in the states is going by really fast--so be sure to take time to enjoy it, too-----hugs, just, Di
