    First I scoured the kitchen, micro, oven and fridge included, then prepared a breakfast casserole for dinner, and then I cut all 36 blocks for the Boomerang swap, another 24 blocks for another group swap, and 24 blocks for the Christmas block swap! Still have 24 blocks to cut out for Veteran quilts Then I will be all set to sew at the retreat this weekend...

    After I de-string the living room carpet...what a mess all that cutting can be!

    I cleaned off the ironing board and started sewing the blocks together for my oldest granddaughter's quilt. I need it done by the last saturday in October. Cleaning off the ironing board took half the afternoon though.

    Amazing how much I got done! 4 loads of laundry, grocery shopping, trip to BB&Beyond, kept checking my Ipad, nope, not on yet, lets go to the next thing on our list. Got my whole list finished, made lasagna for dinner, worked in the yard a bit and finally sat down and away we go.

    Well first I cut the grass, did the edgeing, cut branches off trees, raked the yard and they went for a 3 mile walk. I must have been out of my mind. And it's 94 drgrees.

    I was frantically trying to get the board back up!

    Just to let you all know... we experienced an unexpected network outage today. We're still working out some loading issues related to this outage. The website appears to be standing up on two legs again, but please excuse the occasional misstep while we come back online completely.

    Very sorry for all this downtime today. Glad to hear most of you put it to good use! ;-)

    Best regards,
    TaliaRose

    I did laundry, worked on some coasters and let my grandson (who just got his learners permit) drive us to the recycling center.

    Shop, shop, but no quilting supplies today. Nothing too productive. And try to connect each time I got to the computer. Oh yeah, and I really missed the board and all of you.

    I did grocery shopping, dusted, vacuumed, cleaned bathrooms, washed the kitchen floor and made dinner for my ds and dbil. Good thing it was down or they would have eaten in a "dirty" house. LOL

    I was at work all day and didn't know it was down until I got home and after checking out a few other sites I go to, eating supper and changing into my relaxing clothes I tried to open the site and it wouldn't come up.
    Glad I wasn't home all day! I'd have gone nuts! And gotten a lot of quilting done. lol
