We woke up to snow. Amazing if you ask me,here in the heart or center of America! Mother Nature blessed us.
We have needed the moisture for the past three years.
Thankful I am for the snow.

Sunflower Bag

(Last Post for today)

K made this a couple of weeks ago for her AWANA leader for “leader appreciation day” as a thank you to Ms. Karla

1364399844662K did the work, I did the cutting and instructing, this was the first reversible bag she ever made, it was fun!

March Snow? True Madness Indeed!

Standard

Oh, the craziness of Kansas and March mixed together! I love it. I am glad today is Saturday so I can be at home and do what I want {ha…ha…ha} I did get my treadmill walking in and did some reading on my Kindle Fire. Laundry  started; candle burning. I’m ready to get moving on to something else now.  

Doing some much desired quilting today on my little machine, it was getting a workout!  While quilting I think of happy thought or I will be tense and mess up badly on my stitching. I thought about the next quilt (s) I am going to be starting….my secret one….my son C’s needs to be sandwiched this weekend….my sisters….three is enough for now to think about.

Also, we have been getting some snow showers, nothing sticking most of the day, but this evening it was staying around.  My how the brackets of basketball is being thrown for a loop! A few big upsets already and I am hoping for more! Can’t wait to cheer for the underdogs in the games to come.  Good night! Nothing much to report to ya! I’m looking forward to Palm Sunday tomorrow! Guess I will find some warn clothes to wear 🙂

Day 5 last day for Spring Break

Standard

K and her friend wanted to go to the Mall, so I went fabric shopping while they ran around. Let me back up…we did get the ‘snow’ it was not much, I have a picture to show you, I almost didn’t get one before it melted, it is in the 30’s * F today. On the way to the Mall (we only have one) I saw a salt truck, then I saw another, and then later at home one drove down our street, yes, they are using salt on the roads, is there still something I do not know? I guess we might once again get snow or ice? Well, okay.

So, the girls and I went to the Mall. I purchased pure white fabric (2 5/8 yds) and cocoa brown fabric 1/2 yd) . I had coupons, never shop with out them if I can! So, I  spent $22.91…..I have a pattern I bought a while back and so I needed the back ground (white) and the brown for the dress stand base. Quilt is called Pretty Dresses by Black Mountain Quilts. I have so many quilts waiting to be finished or made, I will  be starting this one and just work on it here and there when I get the time. I have a friends quilt to make first and my sister’s quilt to make.

The girls found clearance, duck tape and billfolds that hold their cell phones. Very cute! 

As for this evening, Hubby and I are alone {with dogs} he is napping. I think we might go grab something to eat…I think I will get a nap for a bit. Came home, watched basketball, some old Red Skelton DVDs and I worked on my quilt.

Day 4 Thursday, of Spring Break

Standard

This week is truly flying by for me! I have not sat at my sewing machine all week long. Bummer!  Still I was proud to get some much needed work done around the house and time was well spent with my youngest daughter K. Today’s forecast ..hasn’t happened yet and don’t think it will; rain turn to snow 30% chance. It’s 35*F right now and it feels cold out there. My outdoor cat Shasta wants in the garage, but she can handle the outdoors. She has shelter.

!. Looking for bag pattern and purse pattern this morning   free downloadable bags   ton of choices! Here is what we picked  reversible tote bag

2. We didn’t get snow, but Friday morning we did get a very small amount that melted by 9am-10am

3. We had fish that Fred caught last summer, bass and catfish, love the taste of fresh caught! Sure glad he likes to fish. (thank you honey) and I made cookies!

4. Can’t believe I didn’t get this posted on Thursday 😦   We watched Lord of the Rings, Two towers, stayed up way late! Because we needed to watch basketball again. It is March Madness after all!

5. K started hand stitching the binding on her lap quilt! She has a bag to make over the week end.

Day 1 of Spring Break

Standard

First off I decided to to walk, need to get that habit established so why not today! I suppose I will just give you a run down of our first day on spring break. It’s 42* ;We did one subject of school, math and had lunch then made a cake. Chocolate Peanut butter Cake. As we were getting ready to make the frosting  I began to frantically look around the kitchen and in the freezer for the much needed powdered sugar. No where to be found was enough powdered sugar for the frosting, we needed 3 cups. so, K was off to the office to ask her had to take her to the grocery store, he said yes. (here I am waiting and writing).

Just received a phone call from K on her dad’s phone asking me if I wanted a Sonic drink, being a weakling I said yes. (so much for my 30 minute walk). Now I am waiting for the return of K and her dad. As a side note, I am not feeling well, I hope it is not something that gets worse.

I did start feeling better, we had dinner, K made snicker doodle cookies   🙂    going back and forth while we watched a movie called  Joyful Noise! I was working on a bucket list item, my oldester daughter’s afghan, I shall be finished with it SOON  (jump for joy) 😀  I am doing the border now, picture will come when I am done.
