Say a prayer for me to watch my mouth and not 'cuss' anyone out!

Hmmm...do I see a 'frog' quilt in the future?
We also stopped at Old Time Pottery and I picked up these baskets...
In response to the comment from Paula (the Fraker Farm)...(thanks for comments Paula!), Sir's Fabric is great if you catch them at the right time. They were having a Truckload Sale, but it was on decorator fabric - loads and loads of it. But...there was not as much cotton as I was looking for. The store is enormous, as well as the outdoor fabric store (across the street). As I said, if you catch them at the right time, you can really stock up - most of the fabric is anywhere from $1.99 - 2.99 (cottons) - decorator fabric (used for drapery, upholstery, comforter, etc.) is very, very reasonable - anywhere from $3.99 - 14.99 (Waverly, etc.) Really good stuff. So, would I drive 3 hours to come? Maybe not, but...if you are in the area, oh yeah, I'd stop. They are located only about an hour from me, so it is worth the drive. They have a web site if you are interested.

You have all your canned goods organized by type, flavor, and use.
and they're all facing the front.
You organize your closet by color, season, and fabric.
...and you correct the original message. (Definitely me!)

Crispy Mint Cookies
1 pkg chocolate mint chips
Melt chips in microwave 2-3 minutes.
Drop crackers in melted chocolate one at
at time (I do this with a fork). Place on
wax paper to set.
Very easy for kids to make or for a quick fix.
I use Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips and about one and a half sleeves of crackers. (...and yes, I know there's not that many on the plate....I didn't eat them all - I promise - I gave some to my neighbor!)

The reason I'm up so late (besides the fact that I'm 'getting older' and can't sleep anymore!) is that it took me forever to vacuum up all the threads from my sewing project. I guess I'm going to have to get a new vacuum cleaner soon. Although, I'd much rather have something else... like...hmmm... maybe a tank of gas!

I love the aqua and olive color.
You can never have enough black and white!
$2 a yard. Maybe an apron?
I also cleaned my laundry room...
Sorry for the many pictures.

OMG...I am lmao...I've been reading a blog...Mid-Century Modern Moms...(mid-century... get it?). It's about teenagers written by several moms. Hilarious! If you have teens or will have in the future, you've got to read this, especially the one about Boys Gone Wild! It's true...all true!

(Notice the 'Bite Me' chew toy? That's Chance's contribution.)
(Won't be this way tomorrow!)

I'm also working on an apron...Alabama Girl said she would cook if I made one...ha ha ha ha ha! We'll see. She is gone to Six Flags Over Georgia with friends from college and will be back tomorrow night, so hopefully I can finish the apron as well as get a few things around the house done. If I can finish it, I'll post pics later.
I'm also working on a new quilt...so many projects, so little time.
Since this week is spring break for Alabama Girl, guess what next week is? Spring break for Auburn Guy! I love these kids dearly, but she likes to sleep and shop, he likes to sleep and eat. That means for 2 weeks I shop, cook, and don't get anything done before noon! But, I'm not complaining, 'cause I love them dearly and I know that in the near future they won't be coming home for spring break. Hopefully they'll have jobs and I can visit them!
