Well I am freezing this morning and it is not really very cold outside. Made beef stew yesterday in the crockpot and it was so good with the cornbread I whipped up to go with. Of course, when the boys found out that I had done that they drove down to eat several bowls and take more off with them. After all the time spent not knowing how they were all doing etc. I am so thrilled to be attacked by locusts. I feel as if I am catching up on a lot of stuff missed.

I did manage to get some strips cut out of that nasty ugly polyester and think that the crocheted rag rugs will be wonderful. I am seriously looking forward to having those in the kitchen to ease my feet and legs as I do cooking and dishes. They should last well and be completely washable as well. Not to mention that the storage issues in my sewing room will be radically eased. I plan to set my happy butt down this weekend and watch television and quilt mom's quilt and work on those when my fingers get wore down....

Should be a productive weekend that way.

I plan to work on the yard today, pick up the rest of the walnuts and doggie bombs and then mow up the fallen leaves. Maybe this is a good thing but as rain is forecast tomorrow I figure it will look nice for that and I can get some exercise.

Peter wants to come over later today to try to get his quilt tied and I am hoping that staying busy will warm me up. His quilt is the one at the beginning of the post. I still haven't figured out how to put the pictures where I want them in the posts on here. My border for the black and white quilt is still in process so I won't post it for a bit. We are selling these jean quilts as we make em and hopefully we both can make a good living after we get the ball rolling.
