Thank you all for being patient with me
and to those who reached out to see if everything was ok.
It didn't occur to me until today
that I could have commented on the last post to explain.
Future me might remember this if I ever have trouble again.
My computer had been giving me trouble for a while
and I intended to warn you ahead of time that if I went silent for a while,
that was most likely the cause.
Of course, I was not quick enough with that message
and my computer stopped performing the functions I needed in order to post.
So here we are with a new computer loaded with all my old stuff
and me trying to learn all the new things
that have come about in computer land in the last eleven years.
This day I went to a quilt show put on by our local quilt guild.
Besides all the beautiful, new quilts on display,
one of my very favorite things is to see the old quilts
on display in various places.
This one caught my eye in a vendor booth.
I asked permission to take this photo,
which the vendor graciously granted.
We had a good conversation about this.
In case you don't know, it is never okay
to take pictures of or in someone's booth.
Sometimes the vendor will grant permission
to take a picture of a quilt on display
if the pattern was purchased.
Otherwise, you are taking advantage
of all their hard work without compensation.
