I decided to show some of the quilts I've made. I haven't done anything recently and looking at my pictures it makes me really want to start making quilts again. I have several I've started and put aside and I have enough fabric to make several quilts.
Do you have a favorite quilt design? I like things fairly simple but the neon quilt I made for Tara is definitely the exception. Initially it was supposed to be for a twin bed but Diane kept calling me and saying they had moved her to a bigger bed and I had to keep adding on to make it the right size. I think it turned out pretty well.

I've been reading so many posts about pride of accomplishments and I'm realizing I'm not doing what I planned. So give me a couple of days to get some photos and I'll be back with something to show everyone.
This post was inspired by The Follower Appreciation Extravaganza over at In Through The Out Door!

Nevertheless, I decided to participate in Homemaker Honey's giveaway and as a result I am posting 10 random things about me.
1. I love to read, especially murder mysteries
2. I knit and crochet in my spare time
3. I've made several quilts, but only machine stitching, nothing by hand
4. I spend way too much time on the computer
5. Very few people ever realize that I really don't want to talk to them
6. I don't feel old until I realize that my great grandkids are starting middle school - WOW!
7. I just realized that I am now one of those old ladies who shouldn't be wearing shorts in public.
8. I'm a junk food junkie
9. I really want to retire but can't afford to
10. My friends think I'm very lucky at winning things - they don't realize it's my second job :)
That wasn't too hard so maybe I'll get the hang of writing something reasonably interesting eventually.

I found this fascinating quote today:
I had the chance to test out an Oreck Halo Vacuum Cleaner. When I received the box I was very excited to take it out of the box and give it a try. Of course all the daycare kids were watching me as I open the big box wondering what was in it. I was really expecting a lot of pieces to put together but I was very surprised. I took it out of the box and the only thing I had to put on was the handle. It was very simple to put on. It also has two attachments and the hose that came with it. Soon as I got the vacuum together I plugged it right in and went ahead and gave it a try. I was very amazed at all the dirt that it got up. I actually saw the dirt vibrating to the vacuum. Here is a look at how the vacuum cleaned…Deborah Wellenstein, You can earn 1 extra entries each for doing any of the following (you must post a separate comment for each one that you do), Feb 2010
