Does Blogger know how to throw a wrench in it or what?! I was all happy, until I hit "upload photos." Then it did its thing, and flipped one. Now if it flipped a picture that I'd already altered by flipping, I might understand. But it doesn't. It seems to have this hidden program that says, "Whenever she tries to upload a cute little quiltlet, flip it!" And so it goes. Another one flips and I wig out. sigh.
By now you're wondering what I'm talking about. I'm talking about this cute little birthday card for my friend Gwen.
Here is the card (tip your laptop for proper orientation)...
Here is Gwen, with her card (and her lunch at Panera)...
The little card is not the only thing I've finished in the past 24 hours. I also finished this baby quilt.
A funny thing about this baby quilt. I'd heard that a friend had twins in November (or was it October?) and I thought, I should make quilts for the babies. Just this morning, I was thinking, well, I've finally got the quilts finished, but I haven't seen them in so long (I don't think I've seen them since their wedding almost 10 years ago!), I wonder if I should give these to them...
And then there she was, with the twins, at Panera. I think it's a sign. I'll be dropping the quilts by her husband's office in the morning. Talk about timing!!
Finally, Gwen pointed out the mountains. I hadn't even noticed them. I guess we ARE going to get that predicted rain tomorrow. The wind has blown away the fog, and the view is actually quite spectacular. (Click on it to enlarge - you might even be able to pick out Sawtooth...)
And there you go. That's what I've been up to. And it's all good. :)
