Gratitudes all round!
Hi, very quick post as I have a family waiting for me in the pool. (I know, I know, it's a hard life here today...)
The computer is all better-and it never cost me a cent. Apparently they get all dust in through the fans at the back, even in a lino office on a shelf under the desk, and they need to be blown out with compressed air. Where was that written in computing for idiots? That is apparently responsible for crunching noises, etc, etc. It's also been anti-spy wared and virused to within an inch of it's life so hopefully I'm right for a while.
Got heaps to post about and heaps of pics so I'll clear these 3 quickly from the "to-do" list.

Bingo-Bonnie wanted to see my finished Gratitudes. As it's so big it took a bit of organising. Here is my little family helping me out. DS was meant to be on the bale, but it was too high so he was in charge of stopping the edges blowing up, Dh took his spot. The whole thing turned into our normal working with children circus when DS only wanted to be in the family portrait behind the quilt! In the end I like the photos-kind of quirky! Got to run, more v.soon. Tracey

The bottom photo really made me smile - I can just imagine DS being really serious standing behind it.

Your Gratitudes quilt turned out beautifully. I love the way you have photographed it with your family on a hay bale. I often see quilts in magazines displayed against rugged settings and this one is as good as any.

Tracey - it is beautiful! But actually the best part is the family holding it! I love DS behind the quilt! That is so cute!

Fantastic! What a lot of hard work has gone into that quilt, it's absolutely beautiful and the colours are perfect. But what has made me really smile is the little legs poking out from the bottom!!
