My Newest Creation

I made this baby quilt for my sister-in-law and soon to be here neice Addision. Its a Yellow Brick Road pattern and very easy. While I'm happy with the outcome, the YBR pattern was harder than I thought, simply because there is no directions telling you were to place which block, and how to avoid this color touching that color. But it turned out really cute.

My next one will be all about lemons. So stay tuned.

Do you give anything up for Lent? I gave up soda. Well I gave it up last year, and I gave it up this year.

I've been thinking about this. At Lent, when you give something up, are you supposed to give it up for good? Do you use it as a time to meditate on the Lord? I'm not catholic, I'm christian, but I figure I can still do Lent. Right?

And if I'm doing Lent, but my church isn't, do I practice Lent everyday but Sunday? Or do I go the full 40 days straight through, as a way to remember the 40 days Jesus was tempted. Because I really don't think Satan gave him a day off on Sunday. Right?

Any thoughts on this subject, and how you celebrate it, please share.

I'm rocking the Dots

*Job interview today. It went really great, but I'm afraid they gave me too many options for me to make a decision.

*William doesn't sleep you all know that. But now there might be an actual reason. He is seeing a specialist this coming Friday for possible tonsil and adnoids removal. I don't want him to have surgery but if we can sleep I'll be happy.

*My dogs are filthy and smelly, but I don't feel like dragging a 90 pound dog who is afraid of the water into the shower.

*Starting in one week, I won't be home any nights except Sunday. Between dance, piano, youth group, softball, choir, working out and working at the quilt store, I'll never be home.

*I wish I had more time for quilting.

*I wish I had more money for quilting.

Ah well, lets shuffle
