Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Russ and I still celebrate the US Thanksgiving because for many years we were in Florida in November. It is a good thing to have two days to give thanks. (Canadians celebrate in October.)  Whatever continent you are on, it doesn’t hurt to stop for a moment on this day, and think about all of the wonderful blessings we have in our lives.

I want you to know how grateful I am for all Inklingo quilters.  I feel honored that you are using Inklingo in so many creative ways, motivating and exciting each other with your photos and ideas, and helping to spread the word about this wonderful new way to quilt.

I am especially thankful to Tilde for the Inklingo Sampler Blog and the Inklingo Projects Blog.

My cold is finished (5 days heavy, 4 days recovering) but our home network has been sick for a few days and I have spent hours and HOURS trying to fix it.

After buying a new router, talking with my tech guy, and wasting way, way, way too much time trying to fix a “simple” issue, I have finally arranged for a house call. I am pretty good on a lot of techie stuff, but I have absolutely hit the wall on this one. I don’t even care how it gets fixed now, as long as I don’t have to do it.

I have a pile of olden e-mail nagging at me, but for now, I am going to concentrate on finishing the next new shape collection—which I had hoped to be able to publish today. Unfortunately, it is not ready.

There is still at least four days of work left (if all goes smoothly), maybe seven, but if you are in the mood to celebrate, some clues are Orange, Curvy, Beauty, Improved, and Deluxe. This is a huge collection, and I think you will be thankful for the way Inklingo curves go together by machine. It is like magic.

I’m going to keep my head down and work until this new collection is finished, and try to keep the interruptions to an absolute minimum—excepting a tech house call and dinner tonight, of course.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
