Since 1994, this annual event has brought national and internationally known teachers to Arizona and made its Flagstaff venue a destination for quilters locally and nationally. Quilt Camp in the Pines and its sister event, Quilting in the Desert, have served over 5,000 quilters since their inception.

We're Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

It's been a long time since I've put anything on the blog. Shame on me! My intentions were so good. I figured that it would be so fun to post pictures along the way from Audrey's and my various travels. I almost always have the laptop with me and so it should be easy to just type a message and hit Go! Wrong! Easy if the laptop lives... not easy if it dies! And dead it was.
We left for our cruise from Australia to Asia (Sydney to Bangkok) flying to Los Angeles and changing planes there and flying to Sydney. There was a 5 hour layover in LA. Yep...5 hours. But, I was OK with that because I knew that I could sit at the laptop station in the airport, be plugged into power and write messages for the blog and then attend to other work that had to be done. Only one problem. Laptop... brand new in August... wouldn't boot up. Nope... nada. Hard drive dead. Dead... along with everything that was on it but that's a totally different story... for a totally different day.

We tried to get it fixed in Sydney... just what we flew 16 hours to do... visit a computer repair place. There was nothing they could do except sell me a new hard drive. And, of course, that would destroy the warranty on the "brand new" laptop! Annoying! After we returned home, Dell sent me a new hard drive and I replaced it myself. Little did I know what I can do. But... I am quilter... I can do anything!
