Due to a series of mishaps, which I might talk about at some other time, it's taken quite awhile to finish this quilt, but now that it's done, I'm very happy to have it hanging up in my home! I've added all of the buttons and embellishments now, although I'd like to find some apple buttons to add to September's block; but I can do that later.
When I took down my 4th of July quilt to put up the Country Cottages quilt, I also took down the floral garland that ran across the top. Miss Spike soon found the garland and wrapped herself in flowers!
She's a funny girl!
My computer difficulties last night turned out to be related to the fact that Blogger no longer supports IE8, which is what I was running. Actually, they stopped supporting IE8 last fall, so it's a mystery to many of us bloggers why everything worked fine until yesterday. Because I have Windows XP, though, I couldn't just update to IE9. My options were Chrome or Firefox; I decided to go with Firefox because I've had a problem with Chrome once before AND it's a Google product--kind of childish, I know, but since I was annoyed by Google/Blogger at the time, I just wasn't in the mood to select Chrome. So we'll see how this works. At least I can write my posts for now.
I mentioned before that Hubby and I are going on a cruise to Alaska--in fact, I asked for some input from those of you who have cruised before, and I appreciate all of your help--it made it much easier for us to decide to give it a try. We will also be staying in or around the Seattle area for a couple days, and I wanted to get more input from those of you familiar with the area. Hubby and I vacationed for several days in Seattle before, so we've seen most of the highlights. We've talked a little bit about traveling out of Seattle but we don't know what else in northwestern Washington would be fun to see and do. Keep in mind that Hubby uses a wheelchair. Any suggestions? (We've also stayed on Vancouver Island/Victoria and Vancouver--great places but we'd like to do something different this time.) Our vacation is coming up in just a couple weeks so there's not much time to plan. Thanks for any help you can give us!
