WOW - when I let the dogs out this morning it was -3 windchill - 18. Believe me that will get you moving in the morning!
I belong to the Yahoo Group Stashbusters and they have an Ugly Quilt challenge this year, use Pink fabric to make a block each month - well 2 blocks in Jan, Feb and March and then 1 block til Oct and then finish the quilt in Nov. I like pink --- so I don't really think this is ugly, but this block was a bit challenging. I don't know what happened to the picture of my other block, I will post that later. But here is the first one
I also belong to the Yahoo group Quilted Table Toppers and this was our Janaury project, I have 3 of these made, so quick and easy. They will make cute little gifts for friends this valentines day.
Since I am off this winter and seem to have a lot of time on my hands and I have been organizing like crazy, this is what I did one morning last week. I had 3 medium size containers of greeting cards, I had bought them at thrift shops, garage sales etc. So I went thru them and put them in stacks, birthday, blank note cards, thank you, valentines, Easter, etc... Then I dug out an expanding file folder and labled the tabs, then I went thru the cards and now I have 2 medium size boxes of misc cards and envelopes to sell at my garage sale and 1 very nice folder of cards, return address labels and cute little stickers. It will be so nice - that when I need a card I can easily take a card from my folder and mail it off, in the correct size envelope, a dream come true!!
Also a few of my friends are couponing -- we saw a lady Coupon Mom on the news, she does have a website too. Well yesterday, DH and I spent about 1 hour printing coupons and preparing out list! Well we are very happt to say, we save $74.32 on our grocery bill! We still spend $72 -- but that was a fabulous savings and we do have a freezer full of meat again. With the economy and both of us off in the winter that really helps us. Give it a try, we were amazed!
Well off to sew for today
