Ten on Tuesday…

Ten Things on Your To Do List
1) Finish my challenge quilt. Needs to be done by April 16th…
2) Finish Socks that I am knitting for Scarlett. They are a real pretty dark brown – but, am finding the pattern boring.
3) Finish the Socks that I am knitting for Colleen. Love this pattern! I could knit it a zillion times and not be bored.
4) Make Hand warmers for myself – everyone I know has a pair but me…
5) Get my address book in order. I have addresses on pieces of paper – it’s crazy!
6) Organize my kitchen cupboards. I just need to put pasta with pasta – and organize so I know what I have in there.
7) Clean off my desk – it is a mess. I have forgotten the open mail, deal with it, or throw it out rule! And, I need to get back to it.
8) Get the filing done! It nothing else, take an hour a day and get it done!
9) Vacuum the house. It’s not like my house is dirty – because it isn’t…but, I just forget to vacuum everyday…
10) Start walking everyday! I walked a couple of days last week when the weather was really nice and I just enjoyed it so much!!!

The Simple Woman's Daybook…

FOR TODAY March 30, 2009

Outside my window… the sky is very gray and it is raining. There isn’t much light coming in my big living room window. But, I noticed that the trees outside have these neat drops of water just hanging on them. It was so pretty.

I am thinking… that I want to cut back on some of the quilting groups that I attend and make the ones I do more meaningful.

I am thankful for… the fact that I am feeling much, much better. I don’t think I want to go through that again.

From the kitchen… Today is the last day of mushing the ingredients before baking the Amish Friendship Bread. I know it will be really good.

I am wearing… a purple top, blue lounge pants with moons and stars on them, and pink socks.

I am creating… my challenge quilt. The fabrics are so pretty!

I am going… to pay a couple of bills and write some thank you notes today.

I am reading… Dewey – The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron with Bret Witter.

I am hoping… for a nice week-end. Want to go be with friends and spend some time knitting.

I am hearing… The Grateful Dead singing on The View. I was never a fan of theirs. But, then I wasn’t a real fan of the Beatles until I was older…

Around the house… the floors still need vacuuming and there are quite a few pictures that need to be hung on the walls.

One of my favorite things… is the rice pudding in my refrigerator. It tastes so good!!!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Since the 1st of the month falls on Wednesday, I need to pay my monthly bills; bake the Amish Friendship bread, re-arrange the freezer, and getting my knitting together for Saturday so I can get help with one of my patterns.

Here is picture thought I am sharing…
This is a friend of mine’s cat – his name is Murderface…and for some reason he just has wormed his way into my heart just from the blog posts his mom posts and the great photos she takes of him.

To read more daybook entries or to participate, go here.
This is something new to me – but, it gives me a chance to reflect on things and to share a little more of myself with you. Let me know what you think…

My Corner of the World…

My corner of the world has included teaching a quilt class at Four Pines Quilt Shop. This is the first time I’ve taught at a local quilt shop and it was such fun! I had four students! The class lasted three weeks and last night was the last night. Thought I’d give you a look at what was made:

Penny is still working on her quilt – she seems to think she wants a lap quilt – so she is working toward that goal. Her quilt will really be pretty when she is finished.


Kathy made two really pretty table runners. Loved her colors…

Elizabeth is a fairly new quilter and she made one of the prettiest wall hangings. She has just the spot for this and made it exactly to size. She will be binding it in a dark green.

Jodi made three table runners and they turned out so nice. The flowered fabric is just beautiful. She had finished with all three by the end of the second class.

I had a lot of fun with them and they seemed to enjoy the class. Maybe I can find something else I would like to teach in the future!!!
