Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone,

I spent the day alone because I have had the flu since yesterday. I am finally feeling a little bit better, except for the sore tooth. I was hoping it was better, but it became worse when I was sick yesterday. I would like it to wait until after the holidays before I go to the dentist.

I worked on my Nice People Nice Things quilt. Now that I have them all transferred to the fabric I can stitch and stitch and stitch. :) One thing I am worried about is the red transfer pencil. I really hope it washes out.

Joy has a giveaway at: Not quite sure how to get the link with the name but just click on the link to see the beautiful patterns.

Another giveaway:

I really want the book "The Butterfly Collection" by Lynnette Anderson:

Not much to comment on lately. Been way to busy working to even get the house clean. I am so looking forward to a rest this year from tax season. Maybe getting a life, my house clean, and a lot of UFO's finished.

I rented a Bollywood workout video. Seems fun but I am not ready for more than the warm up pretty active. Bollywood is the same dance the Cheeta girls do in the movie One World (not quite sure if the name is right).

I bought the psalm fabric this weekend and the Wizard of Oz charm squares. I also bought the butterfly one from Me and My Sister. I now have two of those so I think I will make a charm quilt with just squares on it. I might just buy another Wizard of Oz and make the same kind of quilt with random charms. Do you think you have to wash the charms before you sew with them... enquiring minds desparately need to know.

Car Trouble and Stitchery LOL

Well had car trouble today. Car wouldn't start, come to find out it may just be a chip in the key. But i did get a little stitchery done. Working on a dish towel with an angel on it.

Steph is learning to do embroidery as well. Here is a pic of her stitching. I have started transferring the Nice People Nice Things quilt. They will go up quite quick. Steph's dish towel is using the cupcake design.

Ok It's Hump day, downhill the rest of the way!!! :)

So... It is hump day, why the anxiety. Who knows maybe it is the dieting and I am just not eating enough, or sleeping enough. Well tomorrow is my Friday. TGIF!! Were going out in public. I have a free room at the casino. Should be fun then back home on the real Friday and wash the fabric for the Nice People Nice Things Quilt. That should be fun to get started on something I can make and take with me.

Snow is in the forecast but today was such a dreary day. Maybe the sun will shine tomorrow.

Happy Tuesday Obama Wins

Was a long weekend. Now it is election day and they are forecasting snow. But it was a beautiful day here. Wish I wasn't so tired. I am really glad I am not doing taxes as a second job this year. I can finally quilt and lay around if I want for 3 whole days. Wow maybe my house will be clean again. Now there is a concept. I just can't believe that the election would take over the programming and I would miss NCIS got to love Mark Harmon :).

My new car is almost done. Jeremy bought the motor on Monday and drove the car home today. What a kid can't help being proud of them.

Well hi ho hi ho it's off to do the dishes and then to bed i go.

Well Obama won the election guess we will see what the next 4 years bring us.
