We are back and tired

What a busy weekend it was in Calgary. 17 people all together in three hotel rooms - trooping through the streets of Calgary (the trooping was through the Plus 15's actually) to go for meals and such. The younger generation were up late each night - swimming in the pool and playing various games. I think a great time was had by all but it was very tiring!!

I got this package of Dear Jane stuff just before we left for Calgary. I wanted to get a couple of more packages of the freezer paper for the printer - it is great to have for the Dear Jane quilt as well as it could be used for lots of other things. One day I would like to do some of the Linda Franz diamonds as well.

I of course thought if I was going to be ordering a couple of packages of freezer paper I should make it worth while and get a few more items. There is now some fabric that can be ordered from the website - so I got a fat quarter selection and then I thought I needed a Dear Jane bag for carrying all my Dear Jane stuff -- Of course I'm right on that one.

It seems so strange to be away from quilting and blogging for so long - we got back late on Sunday and then off to work both Monday and Tuesday. I was very tired on Monday. I am working a night shift tonight and we are supposed to be getting the new sofa today. I think this year all in all enough money has been spent -- time to get back to frugal spending now. I think I should be going on a fabric diet!!

The blogger seems to be having a few picture issues this morning. I have added a picture that is just showing up as text in the post box but it seems when I go to the Preview post it does show up as a picture - kind of strange and a little difficult to type around. I still am not happy 100% with the way the new blogger works. I sure hope they fix the issues soon. It is much more work to post and comment on posts then it was with the old blogger. Maybe I should send them an email.

  3. Your adventure sounded like a lot of fun!! Your Dear Jane "stuff" looks great. Glad you had a good time!

  4. I'd like all of those fabrics please! Beautiful. Are they from a particular fabric range? Love the Dear Jane stuff too - very cool. I also had a look at the Quilted Diamonds and Inklingo stuff - isnt there so much stuff out there? Have you tried the freezer paper and fabric through the printer method Pam?

  5. Yummy fabrics - that'll make a gorgeous Dear Jane. Glad you had a good time in Calgary - it must be nice to get away like that with quilty friends.
