Trying to get photos

I'm trying to learn how to manipulate the blog and it is just soooo time consuming, but I'm getting there.  I've added a photo link (off to the right here), but what I'd really like to do is add a page(s) of photos.  Takes so much time.

My photogenic quilting partner (Mr. Minkee lover) is back at her place now.  Boy, do I miss the company.  I find that I can spend a whole lot of time by myself, and then feel like a mushroom when I finally lift my head up from a quilt.  It was so nice having someone here to chat with and someone to bounce ideas off of.  And being a quilter can be so very isolating.  I'm trying to take classes every other month or so in order to learn new techniques and keep myself up-to-date.  And thank goodness for cell-phone technology!  I can pick up the phone and call my long-distance quilting friends any time I need some company (***coast-to-coast wave*** again, Tina!  ***across-the-state wave***, Patsy!).  

I'm teaching a jacket class here at Kiwiquilts, so I'm in the process of making one for my MIL for Christmas.  She saw the one I made 5 years ago and wanted it then ... ok, I'm a bit slow, but at least it's being done.  If I can get some decent pictures I'll post later.  The second part of the class is this weekend.  

Sewing a sleeve onto a quilt that will be hanging at our guild meeting tomorrow night.  I never got into the habit of making sleeves for my own quilts.  Newer quilts will all have sleeves.  There's just got to be a better way to do sleeve, maybe like a removable sleeve that can be used on all quilts.  I just know it's already been developed.  I can't be the only one who hates this sleeve making!

Keep on dancing and quilting!
