when my mom calls me and tells me that it's time to update my blog because I haven't done it in over a week! Truth be told, there has just been nothing to write about around here. If I were a good blogger I would have taken pictures of the 8 yards of mulch and 35 bags of cedar chips that we spread on Saturday. But I just wanted to get the job done! If any sewing had happened in the last week or so, I could have shown that. I did spend 6 hours on Friday sitting at the radiologist while my daughter had an upper GI done. I did a bit of hand quilting on the miniature that you see above while waiting. Those nine patches finish at 1.5 inches square! I was hired by Weight Watchers last week and did my first training on Friday night, I guess I could have blogged about that! But I didn't. Apparently, I'm slacking off on this blogging thing.
On the bright side, this is post 299! Leave a comment telling me where you are from (because I really want to know!) by Saturday night, and I'll enter you into a drawing to win some sort of quilty prize, which will possibly (but not definitely...) include some fabric, a pattern or two and most likely some chocolate covered pretzels from our local candy shop! (And Van, if I draw YOUR name, it will include a prize made of grain in place of the fabric. Unless you really want some fabric.)
