Friday’s Rambles ~ 10 February 2012

* Yea! It’s Friday! 🙂 Payday too. Now if only the IRS will hurry up and direct deposit my tax return.

* My tripod I bought off of Amazon FINALLY arrived. After ordering it on 1/31 it left Allentown, PA on 2/2, then it went to Martinsburg, WV for a few days, then to Sacramento, CA for a few more days until heading over the Sierra to Reno where it sat somewhere for 2 days before being delivered yesterday. Sheesh. I now have an AgfaPhoto 72″ Pro Tripod (only $18.99)…looks nice and it’s nice and smooth.

* I’ve finished hand-piecing SIX of the 111 6.5″ blocks of the Farmer’s Wife Quilt. Using Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley fabric.

* I think I’ve found the pattern I’ll use for my Kate Spain’s Terrain ~ Sticks & Bricks (designer Amy Walsh of Blue Underground Studios)…I found it in the current issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. It’s simple and will show off the beautiful designs of Terrain.

* This morning’s moon.

* Book Reviews on Barnes & Noble ~ RANT! Why do they allow idiots to review books? Tell me! What does the following have to do with the book The Snow Child, a novel by Eowyn Ivey?!

And then they should never allow “anonymous” to write a review, if you can’t own up to your own words then don’t say them at all. Also they shouldn’t allow someone to leave a star rating WITHOUT writing a few words down about the book. If you read the bloody book and rated it, then leave something behind.

* Gotta get to work now. 🙂 Hope everyone has a great weekend.

  1. I always enjoy a good rant – mostly when I’m doing the ranting. Seems B & N need to put more filters on their reviews to get rid of the silliness. They have a ways to go with their site. We’ll know they’re there when you don’t have to open two windows – one at Amazon and one at B & N to get a good sense of what a book is like.Having said that, I lent my Nook to my mother-in-law so she could try out the e-reading experience and I swear the only way I’m going to get it back is when the battery has drained completely. Good thing I didn’t lend her the charger too 😉 Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Love the morning moon. Strangely enough I was admiring the moon this morning as well…lovely quilts!! I love quilts!! Have a great weekend!

  3. I like your new layout! 🙂

    my mother gonna love this 😛

  5. I just love your quilting. They have such a warmth of memories stitched into their colourful designs. Such items while deserving to be hung, are extra comforting when on a bed, knowing the hands which put them together are holding the sleeper secure.
