Just a bit of fun

I found this on my friend Molly's blog and it was fun reading her answers so I decided to swipe it and put it on my blog.

We've all filled out all those different questionnaires about ourselves but this one is about the hubbies.

So here's the info on my better half.

He's sitting in front of the TV; what is on the screen?
Football or Nascar or the weather channel

2. You're out to eat; what kind of dressing does he get on his salad?
None - he's not a salad eater. He either gets something else or gives the salad to me (or Tasha if she's with us).

3. What's one food he doesn't like?
One? I only get to pick one? Onions (mushrooms, peppers)

None - we don't drink alcohol

5. Where did he go to high school?
Chambersburg Area Senior High School

6. What size shoe does he wear?
size 10 1/2

7. If he was to collect anything, what would it be?
Holy cow, how much room do I have? Anything to do with football or Nascar - cars, hats, pennants, figurines, footballs. He also has a collection of marbles from his childhood.

8. What is his favorite type of sandwich?
Right now it's this chicken carbonara thing from Subway

14. Who is his best friend?

15. What is something you do that he wishes you wouldn't do?
ask him to help with my quilts

16. How many states has he lived in?
three, NY, PA and MD

17. What is his heritage?
Darn, we've talked about this (school projects for the kids) but I'm not sure I remember - I think his people came from Scotland and England

18. You bake him a cake for his birthday; what kind of cake?
Raisin spice (a secret recipe)

19. Did he play sports in high school?

20. What could he spend hours doing?

So now you know all about him. lol.

Until next times, hugs and stitches, Jody

Back Again

Well I am back after a brief bout with computer interruptus. We have really been lucky. We've been doing computers for at least ten years and have never had a major problem. This one wasn't as bad as it could have been - the power pack died but at least we didn't lose everything on the computer. But I ended up using the kids' computer for more than a week and it's not hooked up to use the printer, camera or anything.

So I have had some time to get some things done. So I think the last thing I was doing with the Quiltathon. I'm not sure what happened with that. The blog I read about it on was supposed to have updates and check-ins over the weekend but I never saw anything. I don't know if I was looking at the wrong place or if she didn't get to it or what.

I did however finish up my round robin from my quilting group. I didn't take a picture of the backside and I really need to because it's reversable. The back side is a charm quilt using many of the fabrics I used on the front. Here it is:

The next one I finished is my Valentine's quilt. This is a rare all machine sewn quilt. I always machine piece but mainly I hand quilt. But there are those times when I just want to finish something. Mainly I machine quilt when I get to feeling like that.

Next I have the first round of my Christmas roosting robin I'm doing with my favorite online group. I'm venturing more and more into machine applique and starting to feel a bit more comfortable with it. I still need to work a lot more with small pieces - the holly berries almost made me crazy. lol.

I have also been working on Christmas presents but I can't post pictures of those for obvious reasons.

Other than quilting, the kids are back to school, my hours at work have been cut back to almost nothing and you would think between those two things I'd be getting tons done but for some reason I'm not. Maybe tonight.

And of course I can't say good-bye without posting a picture of Thunder. This one was just too cute.

Until next time, hugs and stitches. Jody
