Three things to be happy about
(1) drippy wax candles
(2) the smell of coffee brewing
(3) warm fuzzy slipper socks
This is what my sidewalk looked like yesterday morning - the wind was blowing, people huddled in their coats walking fast - b-b-baby it's c-c-cold outside!
The crack is courtesy of the earthquake we had a few years ago; they should've given that bad boy a name!
It's disturbing that it heads directly towards my house, I don't in any way believe it stopped at the steps.
Out and about ... I started my stops at a church in Northeast, where Noah's Ark Ministries distributes bread on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The bread is free, but they do accept donations to help the ministry.
As far as I can tell, the bread is delivered to the church in a box truck where volunteers lay it out to be picked up. A number of people get van loads of the bread and redistribute it elsewhere.
Next stop - Costco!
I had to return some noise cancelling earphones which didn't work as specified ... oh well!
While I was there I picked up a few items, among them some mixing bowls that were on sale and coffee...
I like my Keurig coffee maker but the coffee can be a bit expensive, do you agree?
But I like the Donut Shop coffee and I'll buy it every now and then. My rule of thumb though - I won't pay more than 50 cents a cup for any of those coffee pods. Sometimes you can find Folgers and Maxwell House on sale at Target.
Are you bored yet??
For awhile I've needed a new driver side wiper blade and I kept putting it off... well, Monday it rained so hard I could barely see!
I stopped at the Advance Auto Store - according to their little automated thingy, the blades I needed would have cost $25 for the driver side and $15 for the passenger. And I still wasn't sure it's what I needed! So, I went directly to the source - Honda - for their input. Big surprise, I didn't need an entire new blade, just new inserts - at $6.99 each!
Okay, time to stop fooling around out there - back home to lunch and "the third quilt!"
I got back on this one yesterday afternoon and it's mostly quilted now; I should be able to finish it up today, including sewing on the binding.
Somehow when I started this some time ago the edge of the backing got caught up in the quilt, ugh!
Luckily it was at the edge, I just needed to pick out a little bit, it can be fixed without a problem.
The quilting on this one won't be show quality, but will Elyse mind? I think not!
That was my yesterday; today will be finishing up the last quilt and maybe drawing some half-square triangle sewing lines on my Texas Tumbleweed squares. Do something creative today, sew forth and sew on til later!
