What's new?

....Not much. The kids are in school, Rich and I are both working, and it is raining. There you have it. In fact this is what Rich is doing tonight (and last night, and probably tomorrow night!).





But he did fix the chair tonight. The screws came out of it so it leaned very badly to one side. Its much better now.


Last night I took T to the library to return some books, and of course pick up more!



I found this book just looking so lonely sitting on the shelf:









I made this pincushion last night from the book. Its not done yet, I still have to put the seam thread on and sew it shut but you get the idea. There i also a great bag in the book that I think I am going to have to try to make!

Tonight I put the border on J's quilt and cut and ironed the binding. Now I just have to cut the backing, sew it togehter, baste the quilt, quilt it and sew the binding. Then comes the dreaded hand sewing the binding.

I have passed 100 posts so I am going to have a giveaway for 109. yeah, I just have to be weird. I was thinking of going with 113...hmmm....maybe...ok, keep an eye out and it will be a contest that you have to participate in to win, not just leave a comment....wonder what it will be!

Hi Sara! I did send an email about the guild info...it probably got lost, I've been having some connectivity problems. I sent it to you again. Let me know if you don't get it!

Sara, thanks for coming by. Except for the horse you and I love the same things. I have thousands of books. I also have fibromyalgia so I make quite good use of them.

Cheers.

Sara, Hello! Thanks for stopping by. No, it was not you that hurt my feelings, it was a family member. I know that enough people in our family read my blog that I just had to go with keeping my bitter words to myself. I am. Really. I like your pincushion. I keep seeing cute stuff from that book all over the net. I love binding :P It's mindless.
Bye for now, Karen

That pin cushion looks like it would also make a cute toy for a child. I'm also like you in that I can't go to the library without picking something up. I can't even imagine a world without a library in it.

If I had a chair like Rich's I'd watch a lot more TV and sleep!
lol Actually, I think I'm a little jealous of him! Maybe I'll ask Santa for one!
