Short and Sweet

Today is just another day of rain. Our ball game got cancelled and I had to work. I took a temporary position at an insurance company, in hopes that something materializes soon! It wasn't too bad and its quiet, plus the money will be nice.

Yesterday the boys went to their moms for most of the day. They gave me my mother's day present before they left. A wonderful card that sings "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang, along with a Borders Gift Card. They knew what I wanted but were afraid to buy the wrong thing so they got the gift card instead. And here is what I purchased last night from

I can't wait till they come and I can start making one of them. Plus I want to make the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler but I have to start on the quilt along from Crazy Mom Quilts and I started working on J's quilt for his birthday. I thought I was going to finish old projects. Oh well.
Sew many things to do, sew little time.

But I did FINALLY finish Sense and Sensibility for my book club. I am probably one of the only people in the world who didn't really like it (or love it!). It just couldn't hold my attention at all. What are some books that other rave about that you just don't like?

The civil war quilts look so fascinating to me. I may have to buy those books in the future.

Glad to know I'm not the only one that hasn't started on the quilt-a-long. Good for you on the Civil War's quite a challenge I hear!
