I've been out of the blog loop for a while dealing with a double tragedy at our house. My husband's best friend has gone missing while driving across the state (270 miles) on rural road to our town for a business meeting then to hang out with us. While the searching was going on, my husband's cousin and his girlfriend died in a plane crash. All 3 are from the small town of Rexburg, ID. It certainly doesn't compare in scope to the tragedies in Japan, but is much more personally devastating and emotionally draining.
Last night when I was told to "step away from the computer" I was able to report that I was, in fact, surfing quilt-porn. This is the term used at our house for blogs. DH listens to Blah-Blah (talk radio). I spent some time graphing out the cat design for the Charley Harper Quilt Along and am currently looking at making a 64" x 64" quilt. That'll make the cat's face about 8" across, with the tail 5.25" wide and arms 4.5" wide.
