Silly Computers & updating blogsite

I was going to update my blog this morning - but my computer will not let me upload photos - which is a shame. When I get to another computer or sort this one out I will post about the following things:

Inchie Swap - The Artist Inchie Swap is now complete - I have swapped 7 sets and they all look fantastic - can't wait to put a photo up.

Artist Trading Cards - ATC's. I have made 8 fabric ATC's which are 2.5 x 3.5inches. I actually quilted them all on my longarm (in one big long strip) and then cut them up and bound them. I had a lot of fun making them and will do it again.

I am also intrigued by ATC's - but paper medium - I have drawn since I can remember - and I have started to make a few of these to get myself back into drawing .... each one can take hours or as in my case at the moment - a few minutes! I now remember why I draw - it gives me sanity and respite from the everyday world which I find overwhelming at times.

Australian Machine Quilting Exhibition - Melbourne in July 2007: I was lucky enough to get a "Highly Commended" for my red and white striped quilt and from the critique sheets, my white wholecloth was not very far behind. I am over the moon to be given this award.

Shopping at the Melbourn Quilt Show - July 2007 - wow, I think I have spent more than enough this year! lol!!! I didn't go over my allowed funds though ...although there was a thing or two I could have been tempted with... Anyway I will post some photos of my purchases later.

Quilting: I currently have two lovely quilts to do - one for a lady in Singapore and another for a lady in Victoria. It is just amazing where quilts come from and what they look like, how they are made etc

Movies and Bikes - you wouldn't think they have anything in common - but....my husband and I belong to the Ulysses motor bike social group (people over 40 who love to socialise and ride a motorbike) - I have a Harley Davidson Dyna Superglide Custom 1450cc motorcycle and love it - when I get to ride - especially when my husband and I can spend the day together just being a bit mad and having fun! Anyway - I digress - movies...we all went to see Fracture with Sir Anthony Hopkins. What a fantastic movie, if anyone gets the opportunity to see this, it is well worth it. I could probably watch it another few times yet. The boys chose the movie and it is not the type of movie that I would usually watch - but fantastic!

So that's what I have been up to for the past month - I will post some actual pictures later. Thanks for reading my blog!

Oh....and also - I have been swapping signature blocks (siggies) with ladies in Europe and they are just fantastic - I will take photos for posting on my blog.
