Of all the
things to talk about in a newsletter...how about the Dark Web?
Happy to say that I have given this part of the internet VERY
little thought, and was blissful in my ignorance. Ah! But now?
It has reared it's ugly head and made me pay a bit of attention.
A bit ago, I read that "my password had been found on the dark
web." I still paid it little mind. Then THIS week, I got an
email...potential blackmail, from an unscrupulous sort who
actually has my password. So Joe and I just got busy changing
every single password to every single thing we can remember ever
giving a password to. It was not fun. I have been on the
computer for nearly 20 years. What are the chances I actually
even remember where I have been? We have made a valiant start.
In the meantime, it seems as though I should know a little more
about "The Web We DON'T See"...here's a little intro:
It's kind of nausea making, to me. I WANT to believe better than
this of my fellow man. So the whole point of mentioning
this is that if you, too, have tended to have a password
that you use for pretty much everything?...I guess it's really
true that they need to be varied! Nuff' said on that.

this page of Blue & White Quilts! Inspiration
Galore!! One that
really caught my eye from that group was the one at

The Story About How I Almost Sewed.
The weather cooled off to the point that I could imagine going
out on the porch and sewing. Then I blinked, and it no longer
was. The End. Stay tuned...
Man...it's so sad and neglected looking! Fabric bins covered
with a towel to keep the sun off. Sheesh. Have I mentioned how
much I hate humidity?
This week we had a tree service guy
come down and give us an estimate on removing a couple
very dead trees, as well as some sick limbs threatening to take
down the porch roof. I seriously can't wait 'til that job is
DONE! It would be so interesting to see photos of the camp
property from my childhood, (well, interesting and probably sad
as it has fallen into such disrepair...but I digress.) My point
I guess was that Mother Nature is reclaiming her own...the woods
are really closing me in! Hopefully within a couple weeks at
least two of the dead ones will be out of here!
The morning chore for today was to track
down--->who died in the alcove cupboard. So far no corpses have
been found. The nose says otherwise. [This is NOT my favorite
part of camp!]
Elsewhere a squirrel chewed a hole into the lid of my Wasabi &
Soy Sauce Almonds. Not big enough to enter. The only okay part
of that was the thought that the little bugger might have burnt
up on wasabi fumes!
The AWESOME quilt
at left , Hazel Nutt is available as a kit from
Laura Heine...see it here:
(pattern available separately)
I would probably
add a Wasabi Almond hanging from it's lip, and X's for
happen to be a squirrel fanatic and have made it past my
mock-unkind commentary...you might love all
THESE squirrel quilt finds on Pinterest!
Now I need to zoom over to the Post Office to
mail a package to Kate before it is too late!
a Great Quilting Week All!
Never feel self pity, the most destructive emotion there is. How
awful to be caught up in the terrible squirrel cage of self."
