To my great surprise I received a block from another person, Balinda. Come to find out this is the first string block she has ever made. Great job, Balinda!! It's a beauty. She even wrote her note on the back of the block so Matt would have her words forever. Now I took a photo so he would at least know what she said!
I can't thank you all enough. I need something like 60 total blocks for what I am going to make. I have made 6 so far and with what I have received so far we are off to a good start. Keep em' coming gals!!
I had a minute to shop yesterday and bought this from my friend Cori's online quilt shop. (Be sure to go and visit her, especially if you are in the Jelly Roll quilt-a-long as she has some of the BEST prices on the web and she is a sweetheart too!!) I digress, here is one of the things I bought. A jelly roll of Verna. Isn't it gorgeous? I also bought some fabric for gifts that I didn't take pictures of since they are for gifts, DUH!! You wouldn't want me to spoil it for them now would you??
I had the day off today to go to a meeting with our financial planner, BAH!! I HATE these things.
BUT...that left the rest of the day to play, YEAH!! So I made DH take me to Sam's club, that was good. I can get the most amazing green beans there, even at this time of year. Then I called PTM and asked her go come out and play. It was snowing like crazy and PTM does NOT play in the snow, so I went and picked her up and we got into lots of trouble at JAF!! They have these wonderful project boxes in 2 sizes and the big one is usually almost $30 but it was on clearance today for $10!!So I just *had* to get 2. They has sparkly green or red, so I got 2 green. The small one, normally $17 was on sale for $7, so I may get some of these for Christmas gifts. I also got another 10% off so that was great, right? Then I drove our sorry butts to the gym where we proceeded to sweat like an oldie for an hour. I took her home after that and came home too.
Tomorrow is weigh in at the gym followed by 2 hours of
