QUILTS AND MORE--

I don't believe that I got around to taking a photo of the quilt that I got hand quilted and bound before my Florida trip--
and now here is the new one I am hand quilting on--
this one was stitched a while ago--
and it is large and will take forever to hand quilt--
but at least I have started it----

and yesterday here on a blog site --
I saw a cute butterfly--3-D style--
so I rushed into the sewing room and make one--
don't think I have it totally right yet--
and I love antenna's on my butterflies--
so I have some work to do --
but am excited that I make one just the same!!!

and I got a package in the mail yesterday--
this is from a long time pen-pal--
remember those????
I still have one--just wished I could remember how long now we have been exchanging letters and small gifts--think it has to be at least 15 years or more!!

and here is a Walmart story for you!!!
I went there yesterday for a couple things and some groceries--
the bill came to $77--
didn't think too much about it--
well--
after I went to bed late last night--
it hit me--that was kinda high for what I got there--
so added it up in my head and yep--
so I finally got out of bed and looked at the receipt!!
and the clerk had charged me for 12 magazines at $2.49 each--
instead of 12 cans of cat food at 50 cents each--
$20--overcharge--
need I tell you that I went back this morning and got my money back!!!
only problem is--
when my friend Anne came we went to 2 flower centers and I spent $30 on plants
and a outdoor planter for my window ledge!!!!
Easy come--
Easy go!!!!!
Smiles, diandmissgracie

  1. Funny story... glad you thought about it though. I think the second trip only cost you $10 all in all!

  2. Sinta is doing creative math. And we are all very creative don't you think? Plants do equal Happiness - so money well spent.

  3. Milk chocolate please, or white chocolate. Or dark would be okay, too. I have to say, I think you will get more enjoyment out of those flowers than you would from 12 magazines!!! DH planted our flowers about a week ago and looking at them out on our deck makes me happy!
