My Lucky Day!

I am sooo relieved to be blogging tonight! My computer died again this week - for the second time in 6 months. I am so tired of palliative care for this "old" computer, but don't want to spend the time and money that is necessary to purchase a new one. Luckily my DH has breathed life into some of the programs again and tonight it is working somewhat. I can't wait to visit my favorite bloggers and see what I have missed. I still can't work the email yet, but am feeling a little hopeful that it will be revived soon.
And another lucky thing happened...I found my paper pieced blocks that I started piecing at quilt retreat, which I had "lost" in packing/unpacking after the retreat! For some strange reason I left them in a quilting magazine I was reading at retreat and found them this week when I picked up the magazine to finish reading it.
I had started paper piecing the word "winter" to include in my winter wallhanging that I have been working on for years. (You can read about that quilt and see some of the quilt blocks here.) I am using the letter patterns from Wendy Vosters website (which are free!). You can download those here. As you can see I have only finished half of the word, so now I will go ahead and finish the rest of the letters.

Glad to hear that you are up and running again. I told Barb to let you know that I would miss your daily entries. Glad I didn't have to wait too long. Welcome back!!!!
