So, How Was Your Day?!

Today I was able to sleep in. I was surprised at how tired I have been lately. Chances are it's because of the cold I'm still trying to get rid of. It's gone into my sinus' and that's no fun! lol

I played as usual. Then I pulled out my book I finished! It was one of JoAnne Fluke's books. I love the cookies she has in those books! I decided to make one of the cookies in there.

This is sitting till tomorrow when I'll back them. It's "Walnuttoes" that is a lot of chocolate and walnuts. I ran out of walnuts so I cut up some of my slivered almonds to take it's place. I hope it is just as good. Her book tells of how she finds things in her kitchen to replace some recipes ingredients. I just hope it works in my favor too. lol

I went out walking too. I had a small walk. Ran into Toby who drives his dog around the neighborhood. It's so funny. That poor dog is BIG but she's a kick!

I posted this on Instagram. It was a challenge one of the guys had. I was on a timer. It actually is backwards to what I had to do. I did the art in the bottom right first. Most of them put that in the top left. We were timed for each block. The first one was 4 minutes. I figured I did pretty good considering I hadn't done that kind of thing in over 20 years. I did enjoy working on this. Who knows, I may try again later on. May even do something like this in embroidery. lol

I'm working on the binding of the QOV quilt. I found one of my binding pieces is a good 1/2" bigger than the other sides. I'm going to try and see if I can fold over that among and not have to rip it out and do it again. I was debating on this but think I can do it without too much trouble. I do the corners by hand, so I can work it out.

Today was our tAS meeting day. I wasn't in the mood to go. So, I stayed home. I texted a couple people to send me the information on what the day was about. Every one of them was not going either. I won't be going next time either. I have way too much going on in my life, that I decided I would stay home and get more done - or at least make myself believe that. Like today, I really didn't do a lot, but it looks like I did.

Just before Patrick got home I was working on my Mturk (Amazon). I now have 321 things done, but Phil told me a long time ago that 2000 is where I want to be to get better stuff. I'm getting there. Decided this year I would work on them. I did get 3 surveys done today. I'll keep working on it. Thought I would take an hour a day to work on it. We'll see how that goes. I only did $15 worth last year. lol

Now I need to get moving on the binding. Cross stitch will have to wait till it's done. I need to find the labels. I'm going to see Donna in the morning. I need to get some fabric for the pillowcase. Will probably come home and work on that after I get back. She has a doctors appointment up there on Tuesday, so will meet her at the QOV meeting. Not too crazy about going by myself, but I can deal with it. Plus I want to pick some stuff up.

In the meantime - Happy Quilting!

Spending The Day With Mom

It snowed more last night. Soooo, this morning was all white. It was gorgeous! Patrick said to wait till 10 am before going out. I decided...
