I'm not sure how they do it, those women who post to their blog every day! I must be really boring, because some times when I think about creating a post I can't think of anything to write about. Or maybe I'm really busy because even when I have something to post, I just can't manage to get posts put up as often as I would like.
So I'm sitting here this afternoon while the Freaking blizzard rages on outside. I mean yesterday I was walking outside without a jacket and today it looks like this outside!!! (Here is a time I could really use that great cursing book Vinnie had at retreat. It's on my wish list at Amazon!)
I took this picture last week before work. This was before the joke of daylight savings time put me back into the pitch dark in the morning. Sometime in June I should be able to see the sunrise again. By June it will be warm enough for me to appreciate it being light out later in the day as well. I just don't get it at all. But, I digress.... Anyway, this was so glorious I was almost late for work!!
One of the many projects I have been working on lately is the small version of the raffle quilt to donate to the silent auction at the quilt show in October. This has been done in the past with the scraps of the large quilt. The guild makes a donation to the VA every quilt show, and the money raised from this will help. Especially if there is a bidding war at the last minute. Last time, the winner of the big quilt decided she needed the small one as well. This one has been way less painful for me than the full sized version. Fusible appliqué and it will be machine quilted.
When I packed for the retreat, I discovered a couple of garments I had cut out about this time last year and never got put together. So I worked on them. Garments are a nice break once in a while because they are such quilt projects! If only a quilt could be made start to finish in a weekend!!!
I'll get a picture up soon.
And next time I post I hope to have pictures from the AQS show in Lancaster. My friend Kathi has a piece in it this year!
Someone recently asked me for recycling ideas for the bags coffee beans come in. That's an item I have just accepted must be thrown away. But it made me think about the things I don't even try to repurpose or recycle. I guess there is always a little more we could be doing to make as small an impact as possible.
I am grateful for:
My ArtCGirlz friends
My fellow cat ladies at the shelter looking out for me

A great trip to look forward to
Being outside enjoying the sunshine yesterday!
