I Must Have Test Anxiety

I usually do well on a test that I can study for, it is a pop quiz that will always trip me up. Which brings me to the point I have been wanting to share for some time. It is those crazy letters that you have to type in on most blogs to leave a comment. Word verification, I refer to them as IQ tests. I always and I mean always mess them up, I freeze, I can seriously not tell what they are. Needless to say I find them just a little bit tiresome. I would leave more comments except the fear I have of failure...

So... the last couple of times I have tried to log on to my Blogger account, can you believe, an IQ test!! Seriously, and they were the really hard ones where the letters are connected and smashed together and in a curve, so hard I flunked!! Great.. I'm not even smart enough to get in my own account. Who's idea was this anyway?

I'm thinking I should post this each time I do a post until the Blogger Party so everyone will know they are invited. It is on my side bar, but if you a zooming through blogs like I do to get the most read in the shortest time, do you really take time to read the side bar?? Not to mention, it is so little you need a magnifying glass to read what it says. I am excited about the response we have had so far, I hope you can join us. If you are interested in the Valentine or Crown Workshop let me know.

Friday, January 30th and Saturday, January 31st I will be at the Oregon Garden for their Stitches in Bloom Quilt Show.
I will be sharing a booth with Sheila who if you check out her blog you will see what great jewelry she is making to bring, these were some she made at Christmas, and they are all so wonderful!

I'm also sharing with Jori and Celia who make felted treasures.
These are a few pictures from last years show.

There are all kinds of quilts on display

This is the second year for this show, last year was a huge success and we are looking forward to even more fun this year! Hope you can make it!


  1. it willl be fun! Sorry you flunked your test. The first time you told me about the "test" I nearly died laughing.



  2. We will definitely be at the blog party!!

  3. Flunked the IQ, don't worry so have I! I would so love to attend your blog party and meet all the bloggers I so faithfully follow. I don't have a blog for I have flunked creating a blog several times. No lie!!! Will I be shy at first, oh yes but don't worry June is busting out all over, LOL I have your calender posted on my wall above the computer so I can dream about each and every upcoming event.

    Just the bug,

  4. Hey Joy, I will try to stop by for the blogger party but that is the weekend that I have to put on the soup dinner at the grange hall. And I will have lots of company but I really want to see the faces of the people I read about. Hope to see you there. Pam

  5. Joy, Where is the Oregon Garden?
