Another Side Line

Not sure anyone will know what this is…

dental-light

{It’s not a spaceship!}

but I have had a rather regular view of it… this past year. It all started a year ago when I had a tooth bothering me… would wake me at night and some discomfort during the day.

I won’t go into the details, but the tooth still bothers me…. but it will need rest to completely heal… and I am not willing to stop eating, so it is slow going. It is better, certainly!

In the meantime, it was suggested that we do some restoration… so fillings are being replaced and another tooth that suffered fractures in a car accident is was crowned. Nerves got very unhappy with that… which has lead to some more detailed procedures. At least one more visit for that! And maybe more if we determine that it is the crown causing the problem.

OH, JOY!

Remember something is Coming 7-31!!! Comeback!!!

More later!  Beth

Storms and Inspiration

Last Friday was a lost day… or mostly so. 10 hours of weather radio weather warnings… from 2:30 in the afternoon until well pas midnight! Didn’t get much accomplished and even less on Saturday due to much less needed sleep. So a loss of most of 2 days…

I did a little playing…. in early May and June.Inspiration-poppy

Inspired by red poppies that are planted by the Department of Transportation in Kentucky in some of the highway medians,

and a delicious commercial poppy print.

I created a little free motion thread painting sample for a workshop in early July where I shared my process.

I wanted to leave the back visible, so they could see the stitching- thread work that is usually covered by the backing.


poppy-peekI teased with this photo on Instagram… A full image when I have it completed.

I am in the process of adding the quilting. Of course not much to show… It also requires a little more threadwork on the flowers.


Big NEWS coming… Check things out on July 31!…. I have some more giveaways too.

More Later! Beth

Modern Woes!!!

I wonder if they said the same thing about electricity and telephone when they became part of the mainstream of life?

In my case it has been mostly the Internet! I think we may finally have it all ironed out. Lucky for me I got the attention of the right person and have had a focused team attempting to get it all ironed out, at least from the pole to the house and the signal in the house!!! I am hoping I never have to revisit this again!!!

On the plus side the new computer is a nice addition, the old one still needs to be fixed, but I will have to wait on that.. Until I have 2 days to take it apart and then put it all back together!!!

Life aside from the ‘modern woes’ continues. Goldie is doing very well and I think she will get a clean bill of health either at the end of July or in the first week or two of August after her last sample is tested. In the meantime she will be under going a ‘Girlectomy’ 7/31. She will be rendered unable to reproduce after!

As I have been saying (over and over again)… I have been working hard behind the scenes at IHAN and changes will become apparent soon. So many little things to get lined up and the difficulties with the Internet did not make it any easier. But check back soon… lots of surprises, games and giveaways coming!!!

We’re going to have some fun and games in the meantime. Are you on Facebook or Instagram? Find and like “I Have a Notion” for future… games.

For now its a guessing game what do you think is coming? Leave a comment with your guess below. Three winners from the comments on this blog post. Winners announced on Monday evening.

Stop Right NOW!!

I can hear Meatloaf in the background shouting that line from 'Paradise by the Dashboard Lights’. A totally different meaning as to why though.

We have been under some heat stress in Kentucky!!! Along with a huoutdoor weatherstationge chunk of the USA! STOP!! was what the outside part of the indoor/outdoor thermometer decided to say… the inside part was content though. I bought it when we moved to Chicago for $10 bucks in 2007. It has since lived in South Africa, Virginia and Kentucky!Pretty well traveled thermometer. I will miss it!


indoor weatherstationOn the other hand it has been upgraded! To a weather station. Now I will know so much more about what is going on… than just the temperature. Of course it was monumental getting it up. On a very bright hot morning…

Since it has been up highest temp it has recorded was 102, with a heat index of111. We’ve had exactly 1 thunderstorm since we put it up…. so the rainfall has not been significant really about 1/2 the amount showing, because I had to spend a day calibrating the little dump bucked…. a pain for sure. 


bandwidthAnother places I would like to shout STOP is with the Internet!!! Between the website  melt down again…. with a bandwidth cap reached. Nothing to do about that but wait. The Clearance Sale had something to do with it,I think. There are still have some things that need to go, so if you are looking for thread, machine embroidery designs or stabilizer… there is still plenty!!! EVERYTHING is at least 50% off!

This is not a heat map, but a map of an Internet outage. I am working on a solution and it is taking way more time than I anticipated! So far 3 dedicated months of all my comcast downcreative and otherwise unallocated time. Who knew that road block after road block would pop up. Most of them seem to have been technology related. Internet Service issues… outages, followed by Provider Equipment failures and then yep my computer failed. Nothing serious, just a power button that refuses to work. So days of a project that were not saved to the NAS (network area storage) device are stuck in that computer!!! So I have to back track… for the 3rd time!

I am not complaining… just disappointed that I do not get as much of anything done as I have on my imaginary timeline. I was hoping to be moving forward long before now!

Of course bringing a new computer up to speed takes a serious chunk of time too. I will try to not be so quiet and share more…. but I was really hoping to fill up all this quiet blank space with excitement and FUN!!!

Please Stay tuned. There really is LOTS more coming! And do check out the store, Ihaveanotion.com the Clearance continues!
