Finally got around to folding the last load of laundry today.  I forgot it was in the dryer. :o(

Sewed a pretty printed green batik on the back of the pre-quilter fabric I am using for my BFFs placemats.  Got the other sorta solid green batik ready for the binding.  I will be using the same solid green on the placemats for Celeste.  I am planning on using the technique from Quilters Academy books for where the ends of the binding meet ---- but it really helos if you read ALL the directions so you make you cut correctly the first time!

DH had to pick up a prescription in town so I treated him to a "gourmet" lunch at Burger King.  After we got back home, we decided to take the doggies for their walk early today.  They are all tucked in for the evening now since we will be going over to the Synagogue later.  Really should get myself in gear and go and get cleaned up ---- but it is so much more fun to sit and visit with all of you.

I only flunked the math used to calculate age.....LOL>   Now quilting math and I get along just fine.   Cooking math is ok too.

You just haven't been tought how to calculate age.  Subtract the year you were born from the current year.  Add the numbers in that answer together and you get your true age.  Example 2011 minus 1943 equals 68.  6 pluc 8 equals 16.  See, it is not so hard.:o)

Gee whiz,  then I am turning 12 today!   Yippee!   Ginny

What has happened to my signature?  The code is still where it was when I set it up but my signature is not appearing with my posts.

Any suggestions what to do, besides doing it all over!?

Yeah, Ginny, and I'm only 10!      ha haha ha ha ha!

i'm here procrastinating and taking a break from my art quilt.  i got started with the thread work, got scared and stopped that.   then i did the piecing on my row for a row quilt.   i pieced birch trees and used thread to make the black lines for practice.  they turned out pretty good, but i'm still not ready to go back to the art quilt.   so i am in the office looking for a good moose silhouette, and i think i found one.  it's going to be appliqued into the birch.   i've been busy, just not on the project i should be busy on.

we've been having a blizzard all day.   we woke up with 6 inches of snow, they called school off, so i didn't have kids to run around.  the wind came up  around ten and it hasn't quit blowing all day.   it has snowed all day, but it is hard to tell how much we've gotten, because the wind is blowing it around.   and it is c-c-c-c-cold out.  i finally broke out the  heating pad for my bed and the  short johns. i feel like my grampa,  although  he put his long johns on in september and didn't take them off until june or july.

i have another couple of hours to procrastinate, then i'm heading home.  i'll try to remember to take home all my projects and get pictures for you.

question???   what should i stuff in those door thingies that you put at the bottom of the door to keep the cold out?   i think i'll whip a couple of those up,  that should get me through until it's time to go home.

I used kitty litter in the last one I made. It was a heavy sucker, but being used on a seldom used door, so that wan't much of an issue. Dad used to use Vermiculite (availible at the garden center) which is lighter, but the dust from it is pretty nasty stuff health-wise.

You can stuff them with anything that has a little weight to it so that they stay where you put them.  I like using crushed walnut shells.  I got a big box of them at Harbor Freight.

Rice spoils and stinks to high-high heavan if it gets wet. I used the bentonite cat litter and it was Ok. The organic litter might be a different matter!  Sand works, but it's also really heavy.  I like the idea of walnut shells.
