Absent from blogland

Time....sometimes there just isn't enough of it.  The hours when I am off of work seem to fly, I pack them so full...I'm sure most of you do the same.  It has been awhile since I have had time to visit blogland, and I have a lot of catching up to do!  My computer is running in slow mode, hope it is not on it's last breath...I have little patience for waiting for a page to load. 

Not getting much finished, so I thought I would at least post a picture of a quilt I made about 10 years ago.  A group of us traded 6-inch 9-patch blocks, and this is how I put mine together.  I love this quilt, as it reminds me of times shared with good friends. 

Look what I won!  A few weeks ago, Marlene had a give away on her was like Christmas in July for me.  And she added some fat quarters to sweeten the package!  The little candle mat is beautiful,  I know I will be using it when the holidays are here.  Thanks to Marlene, and if you have not visited her blog, you won't be sorry!

It's hard to believe that 1971 was 40 years ago...
last Saturday, we attended a 40th wedding anniversary party.  The guests could dress up in 70's fun!   Did you know that if you go to a "vintage" clothing shop...a lot of it will be the clothing of the 60's and 70's...when did I go from being a hippy chick to being vintage?

I agree! Vintage??...I wore that when I was 17, or whatever, and it was darn cool!

I can't believe that the 60's and 70's is now you quilt.

Cute picture of a totally hip couple. Remember that being vintage makes us more valuable!

I never considered myself VINTAGE having graduated in 78. LOL My 17 year old teases with us often that he has one year left before he is released from the retirement home! LOL

The two of you are cute! I'm glad you shared the picture, you are adorable! Vintage is such a nice term for me, too, lol.
I sure like your quilt finish, and your winnings!
