April 2014

 It finally feels like Spring here, love the warmer weather.
 Guess who has a design in the upcoming issue of Quiltmaker? me!!! Isn't that exciting? Here is a shot of the cover, and you can see my little Wedding Keepsake pictured. I was afraid to submit anything, but am so very happy I did.
 Other news, I have a new sewing companion. Meet Mooshi, he is a rescue from the local animal shelter. He is now Wally approved and has staked the sewing area out as his. He is still learning what he can and cannot touch in here.
 All my computer equipment is now here in the sewing room. My printer isn't happy and I am still working on why it refuses to work.

Monitor shelf

My computer desk is now out there in the sewing room! It is astonishing how much more work I am getting done these days. I just had one little problem. The cats LOVE me sitting here and kept running across the desk or laying in front of the monitor. That made it a bit difficult to answer emails or play around with EQ. Stephen suggested I get a monitor riser or stand. Googled it, didn't like the prices, so today I built my own. I went to Lowe's and bought a 24 inch shelf board and two red brinks. That made about a 3 1/2 inch height difference. Now I can share my space and keep right on working! Teddy can even snooze between the shelf and my Brother!
