Bloglines

Anyone else having...nitpicky problems with Bloglines? I have alot of blogs on my list..but only about 6 I read FAITHFULLY! If you don't have bloglines, it is a page that keeps track of the blogs I have 'subscribed' to. It updates the page whenever those specific blogs have new posts. VERY nice not to have to read thru ALL of them to see if there is anything new. Lately, after I have read a blog, it shows the number of new posts as 200...no kidding...TWO HUNDRED. The next day, it shows the posts I read the day before as new. Doesn't that mean I'm reading them all ANYWAY? Where is the service in THAT? (Don't listen to me...I'm just nitpicking again!)





Don't you like this view?

WOW!

I knew it had been awhile since I posted..but I didn't think it was THAT long!I believe we have had full sports weekends since I posted...I guess I have been using my WEEKDAYS to catch up from the weekends! This weekend is not different. We have had sports kids for over 21 years..but this overlap of sports always catches me by surprise! It will probably be at least another month before we have a whole weekend OFF. Heck, I would take a SUNDAY off and be happy! :::SIGH:::::


I have been trying to carve out a bit of sewing time each day. I have a Matchstick Marimba off the frame and bound. This is that quilt on the frame...my first attempt at a new pantograph called Plumage. I like it alot...but will be using it again next to get it down to a routine. I had a bit of trouble with spacing. The finished quilt is still living in the car till I get all the threads buried. I am hoping to load a baby quilt and get it ready for binding. We have a soccer tournament this weekend : PRIME hand binding time!



Doesn't this sweet innocent face look like he is encarcerated???? WELL! He got himself IN there...




He yipped and yowled for a bit...and TRIED to get himself OUT! He is alot of fun...and alot of WORK too! Back to work for me!
