Good Morning to You Too!

The librarian, Earlene, my BFF...see post below, had a meeting to attend this morning and a dentist appointment this afternoon, so I worked for her. On the way in this morning, I noticed our neighbor and friends' horse. I was watching her thinking what a gorgeous body she has when I realized that she was watching me. I KNOW that she was thinking the exact same thing! ;o) Nothing behind me so I stopped, reversed, and rolled down my window (well, I flipped the button and it rolled itself down). She nickered at me! What a glorious GOOD MORNING!!

I've been sewing away on my quilt top. I've got all the blocks sewn together but am still contemplating how I want to do the borders. Thought I had a photo of the sewn together top...but not yet.



Here they are all laid out on my bed. I had enough fabric for the side triangles, but not the corner triangles. Plan B.

I've been playing with Quilter Assitant, a free program. This photo was taken last November after Thanksgiving.
This is what it would look like rendered in fabric.

It needs some tweeking. If I can come up with that many shades of the different colors...

For the quilter's assistant, did you have any trouble downloading it? I tried the other night, and had problems. Don't know if it's because I don't have Vista. Think there would be a chance of me sending you a pic and you running it through to get it "digitized"?

The quilt is looking wonderful! Can't wait to see it all finished.

Beautiful horse! Isn't it nice to live in a quiet area where you can actually stop on the road a look at things? FAB!!!

I am so glad I live in an area with horses, cows, etc. Isn't it great? I am in a small area that cannot have animals (besides cats and dogs) but am surrounded by farms.

You cracked me up with you and the horse thinking the same thing.

I am still amazed at that quilting assistant thingamajig.

What a pretty quilt. And what a clever quilt you're planning!
