God Bless Technology...

I tell ya, I am loving what we are able to do in this age of technology. 

My sister, Joyce - the one who lives in Maryland - asked me to make a tv/bed pillow cover for her.  She wanted to choose her own fabrics, but when at Joann's, she became a little overwhelmed with all of the choices.  So, we worked together through FaceTime and accomplished it quite effortlessly.  Her granddaughter, Ashley, was a big help!  That 8 year old girl has a great sense of color and style...a little fashionista, for sure!  

(Are you familiar with FaceTime?  It is a real time video chat application for Apple Products only...similar to Skype, Viber, Tango, etc., which are also available for android phones.) 

Here is what we came up with...

Poison green for the backing and the other 4 prints for the pillow front.  Not sure what I am going to do, but there is enough of each piece so that I won't have to be restricted in my choice of pattern. 

We live 800 miles apart, but that did not prove to be a deterrent for us!  HURRAY!

A very special thank you to Ashley!  You were a big help, Sweetie!


I managed to get 7 maple leaf blocks done this weekend.  I have 7 more to do.  I have something special planned for this quilt...but you will need to wait to see what I am going to do.  At least, until I have everything that I need to do that something special with! 


A few weeks ago, I received a jury duty summons in the report tomorrow.  But, my number was not in the range of numbers that need to show up.  This counts as having served, so I am off the grid for 4 years. This is my third time to receive a summons and I really thought that I would be making my way downtown early tomorrow morning.  Well, I guess I won't complain.

Have a restful Sunday night.

Those are fun colors and I can't wait to see what you make. I love FaceTime, I use it on my macs too and fun to do with my son and talk to nicholas, as well, as watching him be silly.

I can't wait to see what you come up with in regard to pattern for my pillow cover. Whatever it is it will certainly be wonderful as all your work is. I read your comments about Ashley to her and she was happy. She said she felt like an employee helping me today grabbing different bolts of cloth and laying them out for me. Thank you both for your help! Joyce in Maryland.

I love that material Jacque.
I think it will look wonderful. I have face time on my phone but I haven't used it yet.
I found it very interesting about Jury Duty.
We get put back on that list once a year. We are on call for one week, until our number is called and for a week you have to call in at lunch time and after five in the afternoon to see if you have to go in the next day. I have been called so many times I have lost count. Starting when I turned 18. Even my kids have all been called at least once or twice already.
