New Experiences

Lately I've been doing things I either have never done, or haven't done in longer than this poor brain can remember. First off is that I attended a quilt show  for the very first time.
It was held in Hot Springs and was very enjoyable and I will elaborate on the other blog. 

Second, I purchased a tablet pc. Man!! This thing is awesome. There are only a few things it won't do, and I have my trusty desktop for that. I'd been saving money to purchase a monogram/embroidery machine, but when my laptop's wireless capabilities died, I figured the tablet was more practical. I'll use it every day, and the other only occasionally. This is what I bought. 

Third, a very strange thing is happening to me....I'm not obsessed by quilting right now. Oh now, don't get me wrong, I still LOVE IT, but I seem to be in a slump. I have projects waiting on me and I keep putting them off for short little paper piecing blocks. Strange and unusual.

Fourth, my husband is retiring next month. We've never been at home together for any length of time in all the 36 years of our marriage. It will be a new experience for sure, but we have plans to play with the grandchildren and do a little in-state traveling.

Fifth, my sister and I are going to drive over to Lake DeGray one day this week, just the two of us and spend the day. 
I've not had the pleasure of doing that without children or a group. Should be a little more relaxing. 

Sixth and final, I'm behind on my favorite blog reading. I have just been so busy with other things that I haven't taken the time to actually sit down and read them. I'll catch up though!!

So, there you have my new experiences. Nothing earth shattering, but fun for me.

Lovely quilt show you got to take in - funny how we see things differently and wonder 'why' a certain quilt (or two) didn't win. You have some fun things going and planned so enjoy!
