Monday Goals??

Monday, September 20, 2010
Hmm, I guess I could think of quilty goals.

  1. Stop at the Thimble Box in New Ulm today
  2. Sew more noodles together

I haven't been to the Thimble Box in years, but I have to drive through New Ulm today so will see if they are open.  I am heading to Danube MN to pick up half a beef.  Remember my friend Sally?  She and I split a beef.  It is all packaged up and froze, ready to go in our freezers.  

I have had much "Mason time", but can't remember to take the camera out.  I did catch him while he was eating.

Eating his favorite food, macaroni and cheese.  And while I was home I got out a pan for Shamus to take a bath. 

He doesn't look very big--but that pan is a 10 inch cake pan.  He is about the size of a pigeon, but very long wings and tail.  All the papers at the bottom of his cage are wet, he was splashing away. 

And for everyone who wrote me offering their scraps--thank you!  Yes, I love picking through scraps!  My friend Henrietta would like me to make a postage stamp quilt.  Uhh--No way!

What is it about mac & cheese and kids? My grandchildren like the microwave kind.

I always get a kick out of seeing birds taking baths in puddles after a good rain. Maybe I can think more kindly about the potholes in my street if I think of them as bird baths.

I have a copy paper box of scraps that need to be cut into usable squares. Might be a good project this winter if I can stay off the computer or keep my nose out of a book long enough.

Oh your freezer must be huge! I remember the walk in Lucy and Ethel go when they 'saved money' getting a whole cow. How much space will your half a cow take up?

I had fun reading your goals for today - you sound really organized.

But the real reason I thought to leave is note is you are the first blog where the photo is of feet - I did that for my photo too!

: )

Big stamps! I am thinking an Irish Chain out of 30's fabrics is in my future if I live long enough.

Shamus looks as if he's having a good time! I always enjoy watching birds fluttering around in our birdbath.

I decided long ago that I'd like to do a postage stamp quilt, so have been saving 1 1/2" squares for a while. Now and then I pare a few together but that's one of those quilts you have to decide to take your time on. It would drive me crazy to do it all at once!
