Country Charmer amd Computers

These two yet to be sewn blocks are happily reclining on the really cool layout sheet which came with the pattern - Country Charmer. I'm in a "sort of quilt-along" - no deadline, no pressure,; just a group of fun quilters working on the same pattern, offering encouragement and help to each other. I'm hearing there will be quilters from around the world joining in.

Lynn Wilder of Sew'n Wild Oaks designed the Country Charmer pattern. Lynn, Lesley of The Cuddle Quilter and Sue of Quilt Times are rounding up the quilt-along party. Lesley set up a Flickr group - Country Charmer Quiltalong 2013 - go here. Sue made the cute blog button for the group. Follow the blog button on my sideboard.  You may find you just have come quilt with us. Lynn will be blogging suggestions every other Thursday. You can order the pattern from In Between Stitches.

This will be my first totally scrappy quilt. I'm excited ..... although I am finding scrappy is a lot of work; fun yet way out of my comfort zone. I am loving learning and trying new things.

Computers - technology is wonderful BUT can be a pain in the lower back side. My computer decided to stop allowing me to reply to or send emails Saturday. I had to disable addons and plugins then enable these one at a time until the offender was caught. Since "this" supports "that" and "that" is necessary for "something else" etc., etc. etc. I endured the long annoying process. Why can't these software programs play nice with each other?
