Here we are…another Stashbustin’ Sunday

I cut 63 – 10.5″ squares for the backing of my QoV…used a bunch of FQ and leftover patriotic fabrics.   Cut the navy blue Kona for the binding.  Yeah!   Those are now OUT of my stash :-)   The backing is together…need to load Maggie May and see about some quilting.

While I had the Navy Kona out, I cut sashing for a set of very old UFO blocks.   Might actually get that top together!

iPods and iTunes

~~~  I love my iPod ~~~  

in the World of fancy gadgets, this is one of my absolute favorites.   Ernie gave this one to me for a birthday 4 years ago.   She’s made numerous trips to/from El Paso and Ft. Worth…just playing her hear out!   She’s full of audio books and a little bit of music.  I say she’s full, but it’s not even showing I’ve made a dent in the available space…and there must be about 20 very large books and maybe 600 songs.

I use iTunes and Audible.com (no affiliation, etc…just a happy consumer) to get the books I want and to have them available to upload to the iPod.

The iPod goes everywhere with me in a little case.  Her ear buds are clipped on the case and she normally resides in my purse. 

There is a device in the van to hook her up to…that utilizes the van speakers. 

I have little speakers in the sewing room so I can listen while I sew.  I’ve passed many a happy hour with the iPod and my sewing machine!    Great toys!

I’ve been following the discussions about the iPad.  It looks really interesting, but this gal has been good to me and I guess I’ll stick with her till she quits.
