Waiting

I've finished my quilt. I've named it Waiting. You can decide what she is waiting for.

Waiting
31" x 26"


Yesterday afternoon my Internet service went on vacation. It was out for about 24 hours. It was a hard and grueling 24, but I survived. I guess you could say I was Waiting for it to be restored. How addicted are you to the World Wide Web?

  1. This piece does have a slight technological feel to it because of the way the bars are going across in these particular contrasting colors. I think she may be like you were...she is waiting for some technical problem to pass, day dreaming in the interim.

    I am way too dependent on my computer. Addicted to a lesser level, but still addicted, to the web.

  2. 'Waiting' is beautiful!

    I too am addicted to the internet and am always struggling with that. I love vacation time when I am someplace without internet, phones or tv. The good side of Hurricane Wilma a few years ago was the week without power - the joy of simplicity! But the internet does bring us so much - like seeing your gorgeous work!

  3. Does the phrase crack addict mean anything? Well, imagine that and now imagine me and the internet.

    Your lady looks good. I imagine her waiting for someone and for some reason I feel she is in shadow lookimg out a window with blinds.

    Pretty lady!

  7. Waiting is beautiful. And I'm also addicted to the internet - so much so that it often interferes with my getting anything else done. But 2 days ago my DH was nagging me about turning off the computer to save power, so I did - and it's amazing how much more I got done that day. So I did the same thing yesterday too - after checking email and blogs in the morning, I turned the computer off. I think this is going to be my new thing.

  8. Love "Waiting". What? Internet downtime? Hubby would have to cart me off to the looney farm.

  14. I think she's waiting for for the dryer to cut off so she fold the clothes--just like me. Tee hee. Lovely, lovely piece, Terri.
