sewing with friends...........

Recently I had a few friends over sewing..........
simple easy lunch...........
one of my friends attaching the binding to her quilt............
another was cutting out fabric for this quilt in an American mag..........need to find a copy of this mag for myself................
a friends quilt top.........just to add a piano key border I think it is now...........
my internet has slowed to dialup as our usage has overloaded..........think updating ipods is responsible..........bugger though as there are a few more days til the 24th or 25th when it resets...........so if you have sent me pics of your SSCS it's too slow for me to open some emails with pics......sometimes I can hardly open an email esp if it has animation or pics in it........
......i'll get back to you next week when I can open and download the pics properly.......
.......it's driving me nuts........apologies now as I probably won't be replying to comments here unless necessary............

  11. Nice. Oh. The sewing day, not the internet! Funny, our reset date is the 25th too. We are never troubled with it these days. The internet hungry kids have moved out and pay for their own "Unlimited" internet now. (They keep trying to persuade me to get unlimited internet. I keep explaining to them that we don't need it now they are gone!)

  18. Sewing, simple lunch, and friends ...what a great day. Hang in there with the internet. We have yet another new ipod in the house and it has done the same thing to us... surely blogging can't be blamed for using up the quota!?!

  24. Hi Chick... came here from another quilter's blog... can't remember whose now!
    Anyway... about the internet. can you not upgrade how much useage you get?
    We did recently, I had to double my allocation as we were always going over. Now it's great!
    It never slows down. Like you, that used to drive me nuts too.
