Fabric Friday #4

Uh, well this is embarrassing, I last blogged in February? Can that be right? When it comes to juggling everything in my life, blogging is the ball that I let fall the most. I wrote so many blog posts in my head, but somehow, they never found their way to the keyboard, clipity clopped out and sent out into the world wide webs.  But I’m hoping to be back here regularly again. I’ve finished some big long term projects (restoring half our antique furniture during the limited Oregon dry season) and we’ve weathered through some big changes and (extended) family medical emergencies, a cross country trip, and the death of a pet. I’m ready for this year to be over. I’ve got a good feeling about 2013. My birthday is 3/13/13 so that’s got to be something lucky right?

Anyhow, the real reason you’re here, FABRIC! Here’s the latest stack that I’m currently working with. These are being transformed into a special lap quilt for my very special man. I want to give it to him for christmas. we’ll see if I can resist the urge to show him throughout the making process 🙂

If you can think of someone who might be interested let me know, or direct them here:) I know its a long shot,but you never know!

    Adsense is actually a really great program for those who maintain blogs, as
    blogs get updated all the time and the Adsense possibilities are almost limitless.
    20 percent of customers have the potential to spend five times as much as they do currently A relatively small amount
    of marketing effort creates the majority of output.
    Any time you create new content or share new links on your website or blog, be sure to do so by
    diversifying all of the link and anchor text you implement, regardless of the market you represent
    or the industry you are working in.
