E Readers Weigh in Please

Okay, I have decided that I would like an e book reader for christmas....now which to choose....the new Kindle2 or Sony Pocket Reader??? I have read the reviews....done the comparison shopping and find I am leaning toward the Kindle2. If any of you out there already own one and would like to weigh in I would certainly appreciate it before I send hubby off on the hunt!!

Watch What You Wish For


Well, I promised my self a date with my studio yesterday....and I definately got it. I woke up to find my internet connection and cable service down for most of the day. Soooooooo, without the distraction of blogging, facebooking, emails, and dvr'd television shows to catch up on....I made this adorable quilt. It is a pattern from Pieces of my Heart (I follow her blog, check it out), and I made mine in flannels. Fun, Fun, Fun project and literally a one to two day project if your cable is down lol.


I think I am going to machine quilt this little cutie on my home machine and hopefully have it bound and ready for christmas display. I'll post a completed photo.....if I get it done...cable is up after all!!

The two E's

Sorry for the constant delay in posts...but the holidays aren't even here and I find myself distracted. I just finished up the quilt for my first pattern, edited the pattern, and have sent it off to the longarmer for finishing. Once finished, I will definately post pictures and the finished pattern cover here for all of your input before finalizing for print.

And the two E's....ebay and etsy....in order to scrounge up some much needed christmas cash, I have been listing items on both my etsy and ebay sites.. you can look me up by seller name on ebay, the name is robquilts. Some items are crossing over both sites..whoever buys first lol, but most of my vintage items for sale are on ebay and handmade on etsy.

And there is turkey day looming next week. I am cooking; therefore the shopping and planning and prep for that has started......

Enough!!!! I am off to the sewing room with no phones or computer or family distractions for the entire day tomorrow. It's a date I am making with me, for me.

Let me know how you find the time for your passion...especially when life gets in the way.
