I’m back … with excuses and more excuses

Posted by on November 9, 2011 in blocks | 8 comments

I came back from Houston on Monday morning, went straight to work and then on to the Austin Guild meeting …

I don’t know what I was thinking when I met Andrew and Rho and Kelly–it was so much fun to put faces to names and to chat a bit, but I completely forgot to take photos of us to share with the rest of you.  My friend Debra was so much better at taking photos of everyone and facebooking them in real time.

Yesterday, after a long day at work, I just couldn’t make myself come home, sit down at the computer and catch up with all the wonderful blocks you’ve been making while I was away.   It was my birthday and I wanted a few hours to celebrate, in an albeit, very quiet and relaxing way.

But I am back now and will be playing Block Lotto catch-up for the rest of the week.  Kate has done an excellent job of keeping an eye on things for me while I was away with a computer.  THANK YOU KATE. 

I’ve been watching all the great blocks go by (on my phone) and I am looking forward to taking a closer look as I add them to the monster spreadsheet that I use to keep track of all things Lotto 😉 

FYI, I got some very surprising (and not very pleasant) news while I was trying to have fun in Houston–the company I am working for is ending my contract in about a month, so I am also back in Job-hunting mode and am likely to be a bit distracted by that.

The photo is a last look taken across the street from the George Brown convention center after the Houston Quilt Festival had ended on Sunday afternoon.
