ALL CUT OUT!!!

Well---I did it again---!!
Joined another challenge --!!
I think maybe I really do to be "adopted" so some one can "control" me --!!!!
BUT---then look at all the "fun" I would miss out on and you would miss "hearing" about--!!!!
######################
So here is the latest one--
Kelly's quilt along from her site Charming cotton club--
I chose this fabric line--
Astor Manor---
and I am caught up--as this week was the cutting and I did that today--
So now I am ready to sew!!!!!!!!!!!

I also started cutting fabrics for this months Schnibbles and will probably work on that tomorrow---provided I can drown out the "voices" coming from the dirty clothes hamper!!!!!
####################
Mail call today!!!


Again this is "Kelly's" fault!!!!  she is having a great sale at her shop--Cotton Charms--and I could not resist the temptation--I did try--believe me--but!!!!
I do love all these charm sets--and I always order a couple fabric cuts to go with the charm packs then I am already when  pattern comes in for inner borders, borders, and bindings--sometimes I still need background fabrics--but again I try to keep some basics on hand for them!!!!
#######################
Also got my "first" pattern in the mail today--from Kathleen Tracy --
for her new club---can't wait to pick out some of my Civil war prints for this one!!!!
##########################
And today was our annual family "book" sale we go to---whoever in my family is in town --we get together at 3:30 pm and go to the Library book sale overtown!!!  We have done this for years now---today us "three" sisters where here, so we went--- and here is what I bought--
Cost of $9.00 total---I was excited to find some animal story ones--that is what I seem to be into reading---WHEN--I do not have a needle in my hand!!!!!!!!!!!!

While we sat in the car afterwards visiting I looked out the windows and saw this--
****clouds you say--what is so great about a cloud?????
Well---I think this one looks like a giant "pom-pom" a nice fluffy one--what about you???
See here it is over the building where the sale was????
Was really hoping I could of found a couple "quilt" books I am looking for--but didn't!!!  Maybe at the next sale!!!
#################
Oh--and another Christmas gift was finished today---
I just love this saying!!!!

Well--I am really tired tonight--oh my here it is 11 pm already--no wonder I am sleepy---where did the evening go??????

Be good--give someone an extra hug today!!!
And a hug for you from me---Di

  9. I've tried ignoring the laundry but it is never a good thing. I've had to where some interesting outfits until the wash was done lol.

  10. The thing about ignoring the laundry pile is that it just keeps growing! Ick.
