Elizabeth and Swoon

 Elizabeth, a Miss Rosie's Quilt Co design, is finished!  Finally.  My friend and I both bought fabric to make this quilt together a few years ago when we were vending at a quilt show in New Hampshire.  We started the quilt and managed to get together several times to sew but then both got busy and it went by the wayside.  So I decided it was time to get it done.  I love it.  I forget the name of the fabric line - I know it is by Moda.  I think it is such a pretty color combo.  My friend Jane saw a picture of my finished quilt and is now anxious to get hers done.

Then onto the Swoon blocks.  I have been working on these since the end of March I think.  I don't know why it is taking me so long to get them finished.  I hope to work on them this afternoon.

I accomplished a little house cleaning this morning as well as running errands.  Then it was home to wait for the Direct TV guys to come and switch me over from cable.  I had been wondering about the underground lines but just figured they would have a way to mark them since nothing was said about any preliminary arrangements I had to make.  Well guess what, they do not have any way to mark underground lines so had to reschedule.  Since digging in involved in installing a  line I think that issue should have been addressed.  Go figure.  Also they cannot share a wall with the cable company for my Internet so suggested laying an external line across my carpet to the present location of my TV. Really?  Not sure how they are going to hook up the TV in the living room, guess I should ask before I have wires strung the length of the house.  I'm going to make that phone call and then have a glass of wine and sew, sew, sew.
