Home again, Home Again, Jigidy Jog!

 I have been trying to get pictures that we took while we were in Arkansas but for some reason my pictures will not download.   The day we got there, someone called Pallie and told her about yard sales for about 25 miles down on highway.  We got up the next morning and went to about six of them, but the sun was so hot that we just could not go any further.  I found a couple teapots, a few other goodies.  I found 4 inch quilt squares for 25 cents.  It was interesting that one bag of them was black background with golfers bags etc. 

My son golfs  so I thought it would make a good throw for him.  After we got looking we had enough with putting a red square and then the black golf square.  We lacked one golf block.  Pallie suggested  putting one black square in the very middle and that solved the problem.  I put my son's initials and the year in that block.  We  piddled around with it for awhile and wounded up with a real  pretty throw.  Added strips of gray, then white, then black and finished it with red.  This morning I got it pinned to quilt.   From a distance it looks like a checker board in the middle.  (That's the pictures that would not load)  Maybe later!

I am having trouble with my computer.  I probably won't get very far.  These gizmo's are so temperamental.My husband and my brother went fishing while we were there.  In 45 minutes they caught about 35.  Quite a catch!  The only time I went fishing I caught a fish and it was humped back.  Looked like someone broke his back and threw him back in.  Can't you just see a humped back fish?   Any way, do fish have backs?    I had forgotten all about that fish until I starting writing.   Fishing is not my thing, although I do love fish.

I have about 5 pillow tops embroidered.  Was going to make the grand children a pillow for Christmas.
I know it is only the end of August, but time passes so fast.  

I'm going to try and work on my computer and see if it will do better.  Guess I need to upgrade something.
Be back later.  In the meantime Have a Good Day.

                                                                      Always, Aliene

Hoping you can get things working soon Aliene. I can't wait to see the photos of the quilt.
I'm glad you had a good time. I'm not much of a fish eater, but I know you all enjoyed eating them.
Hugs and blessings,
