Plastic Bags!

Ok, never let your husband go to the grocery store! Junk food and MORE plastic bags!!
2-15 Today I went to 3 stores, forgot my reusable bags, so carried everything out with no bags :)
3-15 Ack! This last month has been me totally forgetting my reusable bags! I am getting close to even with bags in and bags out! I better get my act together!

Just Takes 2

So I was reading about a woman who finished her Dear Jane after 15 years or so. She did it all by hand, including the binding. I thought I would like to make an all by hand quilt. So the question is, do I keep with my postage stamp quilt that I haven't worked on in about 2 years? Or do I make my Dear Jane all by hand? Or should I do the Just Takes 2? I am not thrilled with the fabric I have so far, so I haven't started it. I don't think I want solid red. I want small print that reads red. I guess I need to go shopping, and look in person! No more internet reds! And still keep the postage stamp to finish someday...

Just Takes 2 update

So I have had encouragement to start this Red and White Quilt. :)
A giant encouragement was the sale at Hancock's of Paducah. I got an extra % off, plus free shipping. Soon to be delivered to my door, 13 yards of fabric. Not all Red and White, but mostly.
The first of the patterns were posted today and are very cute, and doable. But doable by the 15th? If I don't add the redwork, I could finish by then....
January 6... ok, too much wasn't red. And some I thought was red was more rust. I think I need to just buy what I can see-then I won't have 5 yards of fabric that I don't want-even for another project!
