Motivation Friday

Friday, January 15, 2010
How are my goals coming?  SLOWLY!!  So far I've only gotten my first goal done.  Royal duties and the paper route took up a lot of my time.  And now I'm relaxing.  But I have played around a bit.  I thought the loaf that Ken took to work smelled and looked so good, I had to make one for us.

It's a loaf of Cinnamon Raisin bread.  When it's cooled, I am going to sample it!

And then there was this really neat new toy Henrietta bought so I test drove it.  I should have read the directions first, color selection has A LOT to do with how your blocks look, but I wanted to see if it was EASY.  Yes, it was!

I had read about it on Elaine's blog.  Hey Henrietta---I think it's a neat tool.

Tomorrow is errand day.  I hope to find a bit of fabric to go with my Japanese Royalty fabric so I can work on the "too good to cut it up" challenge Rosewillow is hosting.  I think I can make two quilts so I'm pretty happy.  And I need to work on my "get out of the rut" challenge.  More on that later!

PS--do you think the sapphire necklace might be a bit much for shopping??

I agree with Nancy, wear the jewels...a girl needs a bit of bling.
Good luck with the shopping....hope you find some really cool fabric. I didn't when I went Wed. Bought a lot of toilet paper though. LOLOL

I have that ruler and love it! I made my 3 doll quilts using that ruler (another look!), plus my Octagon Flowers (photo in my sidebar). Right now a friend in Canada is borrowing it for the winter - I can't wait to see what she makes with it! Elaine really has made some lovely quilts using hers too! I just love all the different "looks" you can get!
