New Profile Photo

For those of us who were first to take Tonya's Lazy Gal Class, we decided to send Tonya our names to her as a thank you and on Friday we revealed our blocks to her. Above is mine and I will be using it as my new profile photo. I am sad to see my Spike block go, but I will bring it back as a header for my blog eventually. (Once I figure out how to change my header and I make "quiltasdesired" as a block as well..If anyone has this template and knows how to do it, let me know...I've been hesitant to change my template to the new easier version, because I've been happy with this one, so far...I just want to personalize the header)

I don't have much other quilty things to reveal, it's getting crazy at work, and I spent Saturday Christmas shopping and Sunday, Dad and I put together my new cupboard for my sewing room. Then we decided to see if we could make some headway on the eaves troughs. I didn't get to clean them out before it snowed because the leaves were so late in dropping. Then the snow froze the leaves into the troughs and the downspouts were getting all backed up. When finally the snow was gone it was too windy to go up on the ladder. Well, yesterday it snowed again, but today it was raining. It was enough to allow a bit of melting and I was up on the ladder shoveling out logs of frozen leaves and ice out of the troughs! Absolutely miserable work, but it's all done! Just in time too, because tomorrow we are expecting 20-30 cm of snow, that's 8-12 inches for you Yanks. I am glad I don't drive to work, I expect the roads to be pretty terrible tomorrow!

PS. Thanks Dad!I couldn't have done it without you!

gotta love those fall jobs that don't happen to winter -- very very unpleasant then.... Your name block turned out wonderfully and will make a great profile pic.

Keep your shovel handy :-)

I love your name block - it just arrived in the mail yesterday. woohoo, it's christmas around here.

I was hesitant to switch to the new template, but I'm really really glad I did. Much easier to use.

My first visit to your blog, courtesy of Tonya's (Lazy Gal). I've been stewing about a profile pic for my blog and you've given me the obvious answer! Love your block!

I also want to personalize my header with a picture behind the title. Haven't figured out how to do it yet though. I don't find Blogger Help all that helpful. I'm not a tekkie either though, and that may have something to do with it. ;- )

Logs of frozen leaves and ice does NOT sound like a job I'd want to tackle... lol

Very impressive santa collection!
