First off my computer is having major problems!!
It is taking me almost 2 hours now just to write this blog....my computer got some kind of virus....bug....trojan....or something....so everytime I try to do anything it takes me to places
Lots of starting over and over and over!! UGH!!! I think I am going to have to take it to the computer hospital!! Maybe intensive care!!
Valentine's day brought us brief snow showers as our good friend JEFF came over and helped my husband JEFF take down the fir tree that blew over last month.
After a few hums of the chain saw and a tug with the winch we dislodged the top and then a huge notch in the base brought the tree down!!
each day the rest of the week....well let's just say my memory is not what it used to be.......LOL...ok...so after reviewing the week I think I remember!!
Wednesday afternoon I had lunch with my daughter and then went to pick up my great nephew, Drake (who will be 2 in March), and had him over night and all day Thursday....we had so much fun playing!!!
Friday I got to have Addison for the day and since she was feeling much better. We went and surprised Aunt Amy and had lunch with her again!!
Today I took a bit of time to meet up with a friend (Betty Anderson) who teaches classes at a cute little quilt shop called Quilter's Corner in Milwaukie, OR.
She is teaching several of Sue Spargo's designs as well as several others. She introduced me to the quilt shop owners who are carrying some of my patterns and hand dyed wool.
After a quick bite to eat at a local deli, we were off to Damascas, OR to visit Pioneer Quilt Shop. Another fun shop to visit!!
The gals were so nice and I found some wonderful fabric there that i just had to have!!!

Wool can be too,
But I did have fun dying wool this week!!

Better late than never........Tuesday was supposed to be the day that my friend Betty came over to dye wool with me.....but due to an extra long hair appointment and some unexpected snow........we had to put it off until today.
Even though it always seems like so much work to get out the dye stuff and set it all up but when you start mixing the colors, heating the pots, and adding the wool it all comes back how much fun dying wool is!! The best thing is when you get to take it out of the dryer all soft and warm and such beautiful colors!!
Betty went home happy with a sack full of yummy hand dyed wool!!
I kept the dye pots out and might dye some more tomorrow!!
