Why is it that I could eat chocolate every single day for the rest of my life and never get sick of it but yet, anything else, like HAM, I can only stand for a few days? Ever think about that?
I love ham, but I am getting tired of eating it. We still have leftovers from Sunday and I really REALLY don’t want Ham again tonight, so the rest of it is getting cut up and frozen. I think I’ll grind some up for ham salad tonight though.
Hmm … wonder if chocolate covered ham might taste good? :)
(Trivia question for the day is below)
Ok, so I’ve made some progress on the giveaway Pansy Candle Mat ….
See the little candy dish that I used to trace around to make that inner circle and the stem arches? Jelly beans are in it now! I washed it first, of course, but that shows how we can use ordinary things around the house to help us with our patterns.
I just need to stitch some little buds with stems and attach the backing on this mat to finish …. which I hope to complete by tomorrow.
I should have this ready for a Friday Giveaway announcement!
Congrats to Cara of Cara Quilts for answering the last Trivia question first, and correctly. Yes, it was Blackberries that I made with all the french knot details.
All you lucky ones who’ve won extra entries for answering the trivia questions will get one more chance for an extra entry before I offer up the actual Pansy Candle Mat to give away.
I’ll even include my sister, Casserole Carol, in this one too. She was pretty upset that she was excluded from some of the trivia questions. I thought it was cheating and unfair to all the rest of you for her to answer the trivia question that was about her or the one that she would obviously know. She always cheated at Monopoly when we were little too. Oh wait … that might’ve been me that cheated. ….. hmm …. it’s best that we not go there!
Ok, the trivia question for today isn’t really a trivia question, it’s just a regular guessing kind of question.
Take a look at all of my patterns that I have shown over on the left sidebar.
Which pattern out of all of them has been the most popular seller?
Oh and since I’m the one that makes the rules, I’m going to give out extra entries to everyone that responds today PLUS extra entries to all of those who answer correctly. That means you can possibly win 2 extra entries today.
It’s still spring cleaning around here. I need to get up to my wool room and organize and I need to get up to the big sunporch and clean it out because Rach is going to be bringing her things home from school in a month and the sunporch is where it all gets stored.
But … you’d think that I would start spring cleaning with small things that are right in front of my face everyday, wouldn’t you?
My pincushion, that I use everyday, needs some major spring cleaning. Actually, it’s needed cleaning since last fall. … It’s a mess, isn’t it? I have leftover strawberries stuck on there from last spring .. heck there are leftover wool heart pins stuck in there from 2009 Valentines day. Threads and buttons dangle …
This is the backside … Gosh, I never even look at the back of this. Look how many loose threads have collected there!
Ok, I’m going to spring clean my pincushion. Next time you see it, you won’t recognize it!
Car shopping is still going on … it’s just that Jen has now taken over the despised wheeling and dealing part of it for me. Jen loves doing the online dealing with the salesmen and she’s already managed to get a REALLY good price on the Hyundai Sonata for me. She’s working this week to get an even better deal.
I’ve been so limited with my time lately that I just haven’t been around to read any blogs lately. I really enjoy reading all of you and I miss it all a lot. I’m going to try to start back to my reading over the weekend. There’s a Yahoo wool group that I was invited to join but I just haven’t had the time to add even more to my reading list, but I hope to join that group within the next week too.
Sorry about the neglect. I’m trying to organize my time better and I think I’m doing well so far this week.
Happy day everyone! It’s been just GORGEOUS weather here lately … I hope it’s just as beautiful where YOU are!
