what ive been up to....

I still dont have pictures... but i have completed alot of the little square quilt... i think im going to name it 6543 or something like that... there will be 6500 squares plus when i finish it! Im going to name it that so i can remember how many dang little squares i sewed together BY HAND!

I have finished one of the denim scrap quilts... well, ive sewed it together, im in the process of clipping all the seams so i can wash it... that is a project that i work on while ralph and i are watching tv... I have been putting this off because it was just too hot to sit under it while i did it... after last night that will not be a problem, it was in the 30's... normally the season  change is more gradual.

But... since im not going to finish 6543 in time for christmas... i started another quilt yesterday. Im taking the plaid shirts i have been collecting and cutting 10 1/2 in squares... im just going to sew these together, by machine, back it with a sheet... and give it to ralph for christmas. This is really going to be a quick utility quilt out of necessity. i have no idea why... but we have a queen sized bed and 90 percent of our bedding is for a full size bed... it barley covers the top of the bed and when you get our bodies underneath... it never fails... my butt ends up exposed and cold! so we WILL have a new quilt that covers the bed and THEN some by christmas (actually i have the day off and i hope to get most of it done tomorrow)

so... what happened??? well, the cord on my laptop caught fire and its 90 buck to replace that, ralphs harddrive went out on his laptop... both at the same time. We also had a desktop at home with satellite internet but... ralph got mad that his sons girlfriend spent all of her time on the Internet and decided not keep it because it just irritated him so much... At the same time things at the restaurant heated up... we almost doubled in business and we had a period where we couldn't get enough employees to stick so ralph and i were doing 12 hour shifts everyday! We just didn't have time to deal with the computers and decided to go 3 months cold turkey without any internet! We actually went thru alot less withdrawl than i expected.

We finally got some good employees and were not working as much and we decided we needed internet for business reasons and i finally fixed this computer. lol how much time will we have on it i dont know... were about to open a 2nd restaurant in a few weeks! lol.
