Pooh bear and a Post about other bloggers

I love my laptop: Let me count the ways. I love my laptop because I can sit outside in the sun and blog..I mean do my homework, I can sit on the bed and blog do my homework where Mr. Moo can’t reach me. I can move easily from room to room following the Mobile One and his ever present need to be Somewhere else! RIGHT. NOW. All the while checking blogs finishing up homework that is due tonight!

And of course I love THE MAN because he bought me the laptop, and the laptop carrying case.

In my ongoing attempt to keep my quilting gene alive, here is another quilt I’ve done in the past. This was made for Mr. Moo’s cousin, Pooh Bear.

This quilt was finished in May of 2003, picture taken July 2003

I love quilts! I love the way they can have hidden meanings, (children’s clothes, patterns made up between friends) the way the same patterns can look different depending on contrasts and colors.

For instance, Pooh bears mother (and her sister, my mother-in-law) are very into Winnie the Pooh so I chose Pooh fabric for this quilt. Now the quilt pattern (for you non-quilters, stop by anytime!!) I used here is Bear's Paw. I love doing stuff like that. It's like a secret code.

I’ve been stressing this week trying to get papers done, even though I just realized I’ll have all weekend in class to finish up papers (kids don’t try this at home! ) because I’m such a good student and always pay attention in class! Due to the fact that I can’t access internet in the classrooms. (Dang! someone there was thinking!)

Anyway, I was stressing, and haven’t kept on top of updating my template and the blogs I’ve been reading.

Here are just a few:

Quilt-o-mania: Another crafter who has two blogs! One knitting one quilting, great designs!

Thimble: I just love her and today’s post is a tutorial on making cute little icons next to your blog name

All sorts: Art and Crafts, is like being at camp all the time, Jenny has beautiful pictures and a kid's heart

Forget-me-not quilts: A stay a home mom of identical twins and a son who is 17 mths older than them HELLO! and she has time to quilt? I love her style, after my own heart!

And I don’t want to forget my Running Blog Family, always an inspiration.

Black Toes: Christian always has interesting links, especially to wife Brynne’s blogs (tri-mommy and knitlet) and baby pics….we love baby pics!

Dawn on the Run: She is an inspiration to runners and bloggers everywhere with her blogging serenity prayer.

And Mid-pack Mom: talking about balance, exercising for life and what it is all about.

And special thanks to the Zoot for teaching me how to slash out words. Happy Heartbeats Zoot!

Isn't it amazing how long your post can get when you supposed to be writing a paper?

  • Hi! I just googled "mid-pack mom" and saw that you had linked me. Tx for the link and also for writing a bit about my blog. I'm trying to find balance...tough to do. I look forward to reading more of your blog. Cute pictures by the way.

    Hope all is well with you! Kirsten/mid-pack mom
