More to Share

My friend send me the greatest pictures sometimes. So twice in one week she has sent me the best "aaaaawe" pictures. This little one was born cesarean after its mother was killed. He is sooo tiny and precious. It's amazing.

But that's one kind of awe. There is anther kind and that when you see something the makes you stare in wonder and disbelief that something could be so beautiful. Talking Tulips Lily Wrey accomplishes that wow factor with her jewelry. Really suburb and something I can only dream about.

Have to Share

I just have to share this image. My friend sent me the article with this picture. The article talk about two white tiger cubs who had to be separated from their mother after Hurricane Hannah, because she became stressed. So the woman who took the cubs, who is a professional animal care giver, also had this two year chimpanzee, who helps and mimics her. This picture was just to precious not to spread to a wider audience.

I Wish

I wish I could figure this all out. What is blogging really and this whole ranking stuff. And how do you find out how you are ranked. How does this affect by ability to sell my quilts. I'm feeling good about stuff - but I still feel a little lost about all this networking. Hilary, however seems to have it all down a lot better then me. Designing Hilary is ranked two, if I read her blog correctly. Now don't get me wrong. I do understand that a higher ranking means that more people will possible visit your site - so forth and so on, but I still feel like I'm missing something. Either that, or I am not giving enough time to the computer. Honestly - I am so very busy doing other stuff.

Maybe I am a little old fashion (she says as she sits munching on bread that she made Saturday - yum). I have been trying to be more self sufficient - cooking my own meals, planting fruits and veggies. Believe it or not I occasionally receive a free rabbit from my neighbors hutch. I try to be more conscious of how and where I travel, use things that are more user friendly to the environment - which, actually, sometimes, requires more work. I putter around the house and yard so much when I am not at work and I have had to resort to going to a sewing room to get my sewing done. I say resort - but I love it - really allows me to concentrate, away from everything and just sew.

So how to get a handle on this blogging/networking thing and move it forward is all I'm asking. Is there some kind of thing that really aides a person like me.

Oh well - here are some pictures that I took today. My quilt guild does an opportunity quilt every year, which is raffled off. We are doing an art quilt this year based on orange blossoms, because we are the Orange Blossom Guild. Also in my area of California, we grow a lot of citrus. I have lemon blossoms right now and we needed examples for the quilt. I also attempted to photograph a butterfly - not easy.

Some things Feel Great and Others Feel like a Challenge

The Seasons change and life speeds up and slows down. Everything ebbs and flows. Just when you think you can not take one more moment of the day in and day out, something happens to remind us that we do count and mean something and that there is something to be said about the lives we are living. Check out Eight is Not Enough and you will come to realize that every life is different and challenging and a blessing.

For me - just when I think I don't want to sell my quilts anymore I have a great moment. This last month was pretty productive.

I delivered a commission,

sold another quilt, finished two charity quilt tops,

and am almost finished with a spur of the moment of inspiration. I may have gotten a little over the top with embellishments - but it is a work in progress.
