It’s design wall Monday over at Patchwork Times. Click HERE to see what everyone is working on. My design wall is empty right now due to the “Major Cleanout and Renovation of the Bonus Room” or MCRBR, as I have taken to calling it! (Try it a couple times – MCRBR – it rolls off the tongue!)

Most of the “stuff” is cleaned out, now comes the renovation. I have to arrange for flooring to be put down before the long arm is set up. DH has a few jobs to take care of. Top of the list – install electric outlets and lights!!! The wiring is all there, he just has to hook everything up!

Soon, very soon, I’ll have my quilter up and running and then I’ll be cooking with gas!!

On another note: Have I ever mentioned that I am a little slow on the uptake sometimes? 😉

I’ve been blogging since October of 2010. Shortly after I started blogging I came up with “P-E-A-C-E” as my closing.


My intention was to convey that we all need a little Peace in our lives; that we should seek Peace. I feel peaceful when I am quilting, so it tied in with that. And it was also a nod to my “hippie” roots. (That’s an inside joke, since I was never really a hippie – I came of age in the disco era!)


(OMGoodness! I’ve dated myself there, haven’t I?)

Last Friday I was having trouble with my internet connection. I couldn’t get the laptop to connect at all and my phone just barely connected.

So I decided to use my voice command option to tell you what the problem was and then sign off.

I said, “My internet connection isn’t working right – period – enter – enter – Peace”

What showed up on the screen was:

“My internet connection isn’t working right.



“P-I-E-C-E” !!!!

You would think I would have realized that my closing was actually a homophone that would relate to my blog either way that it is spelled! I had to see it in print on the blog to realize this! It never once entered my head before now! Either word works well. I can be wishing Peace onto you or instructing you to get to work and Piece!!!

So, in closing, I’d like to say:

Peace (or Piece, however you want to take it!!)
