Spring Break

It's almost spring break time!  I'm so excited I can hardly stand myself.  For the 1st time in a very long time I'll be getting the week of spring break off!  A week plus 1 day to be home and do whatever my heart desires.  Ok, so I have more to do than just what my heart desires but that's ok too.  I think I'm going to go visit the out of town kiddos for a day or two.  I need to shop for the Easter breakfast at church then go put all the goodies away.  I will also spend time taking my sewing items to the church for storage for our Prayers & Squares group meetings.  On the Monday following Easter I plan on going to Tulare to visit with my quilting friend.  That still leave 2-3 days to do stuff around the house and sew!  I think I may take Bri and Mia to the zoo or playland one afternoon as well.  I think I just filled my week up without even trying!

I've been busy!

I've been playing around in blogland and found out how to change my background!  How do you like it? 

I've also been busy at home making little stuffed doggies for 4 little girl's Easter baskets.  I'll post a picture when they are all done.

Getting closer to Prayers & Squares

I'm finally getting closer to officially starting the Prayers & Squares ministry at church.  It's taken me longer than I had originally planned but it is coming together.  I'd like to have 20 or so quilts ready when we announce it at church so that we won't be scrambling to complete any as they are requested.  Here's what I have going so far:

15 or so tops in various stages of completeness (is that a word?)
1 friend helping me by sandwiching and do light quilting on several tops (thanks Cherii)
1 evening each month on the calendar at church dedicated to P&S
2 people interested in coming each month to help
a shelf at church to store quilting supplies and quilts waiting to be given out
2 sewing machines for people to use
various supplies to keep at the church instead of hauling them back and forth
10 yds of batting
1 bolt of muslin for backings

Here's what we still need:
2 sets of risers for raising the tables for pinning

All in all I think we're off to a good start!

Things I have learned...

Things I have learned...

The more people that go to the grocery store with you the more “stuff” you buy.

Chocolate really does make a person feel better.

If you have cable TV your child can watch either Dora or Spongebob 24 hours straight…if you let them.

If you burn just 1 kernel of popcorn it’ll make the whole house stink.

Men wish women would never change.

Twenty-four hours in a day doesn’t always seem like enough but it’s all we get so we should make the most of each day.

Words once spoken can’t be taken back.

Nobody on earth loves you like your Grandma.

Grandkids are God’s way of making up for all you went through with your kids.

Hearts don’t divide with more kids to love…they just grow bigger.

Women wish they could change men.

Dogs will drink out of the toilet bowl every time they get a chance…even if their water bowl is clean and full.

Marriage is better if God is in it.

Jesus didn’t come for the righteous…He came for the sinners.
