Good Morning, all. As you could tell I didn't find much to comment on yesterday. I thought I would have a picture of a new quilt top by now but instead I took it off the wall and put it away for a while. The new arrangement didn't work any better than the old one did. Usually my seams line up and my points meet much better than they were. I will let the problem simmer on the back burner of my mind until I can see a solution to the problem. Until them I will do other things. The sewing area needs to be straightened out and rearranged again. It gets so disorganized when I am playing with the quilts and I need see what I have again and put it all where I can find it.

I agree, Lois, on the doom and gloom. That is one reason why, though the news may be on, we aren't paying that much attention. A second reason is that so little reflects my experience and so little is really news. We have been getting a lot lately on the continuing Tiger Woods soap opera and I, frankly, don't give a rat's ass. This isn't news and, yet, we can't get away from it. If we don't have a continuous stream of disgraced public figures beating their breasts and crying 'mea culpa' hoping we think they are sincere, we are whipped between either the 'doom and gloom' prognosticators who make Chicken Little look optimistic or the panglossian pundits for whom the silver linings are about to turn golden. It all is so irrelevant and out of sync with my life. Things that matter to me--health care, the repeated attempts by the conservative Neanderthals to destroy Social Security, jobs--are superficially covered with no real analysis and, God forbid, any out of the box thinking.

I do the same -- I'll put a project aside for a bit and, more often than not, the solution pops up seemingly out of nowhere.

I'm tired of Tiger Woods too. Let the Woods family work it out.

I'm beginning to think that we have lost our collecttive mind.

You are like me, I put things away till I can think about a solution.

The problem the world has is that we have 24 hour news and they have to come up with something. They focus on the piddle stuff like affairs because they don't have the guts to do real stories. Real stories take time and a lot of digging. They don't want to do that anymore. They want it fast and by doing that they don't get it correct. Sucky!

Take care :)
