I haven't been able to get on to our local attachment parenting forum
for a week. We had AT&T U-Verse installed last Monday and since
than I can get on any other site but the one I waste the most time on.
So you would think I would have been busy blogging but that hasn't
happened. I also wipe out all my bookmarks.

I have finished Elizabeth's jean rag quilt. I started this quilt out 10 years ago with blue jean squares sewed
together with a floral flannel back and I had it halfway tied. I don't
think I finished it because I didn't like it very much. So when my
sewing machine died and I needed something to do. I took the quilt
apart and cut the backing and the batting to match the squares. I also
sewed hearts on half of the blocks. All that's left to do is finish cutting the material to make it rag.I'm taking a break today because my hand is sore and I'm only 1/8 of the way done.

I have another rag quilt cut out, this one is going to be strips similar
to the one pictured here but I'm using more colors and might add a
square with a heart to every other row. I'm also going to do the quilt
a long at Crazy Mom Quilts.

I need to get my sewing area organized so I can show a before and after picture.

We went to the Fort Leavenworth Garage Sale Saturday. I found a few patterns and some material and Martha Stewart Magazines. I really scored on some soft-soled shoes 2 pairs of Robeez they have a little wear but I know I'll get my money out of them.

I was going to hurry up and upload some pictures to post but ahhem the printer is covered with sewing stuff. Off to work on that.

I was tagged by Lori to list 7 random things:

1. I had my oldest child when I was 16 and my youngest at 42.
2. I love Mexican food and could eat it every night.
3. My alter ego would be a detective like Kinsey Milhone
(except I wouldn't want to get beat up like she does).
4. It took me eleven years to get a two year degree in accounting
(that I've never used in a job).
5. I was a Blue Bird and Camp Fire girl.
6. I've watched "You've Got Mail" so many times I could
probably say it word for word.
7. I love Mocha's.

Here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share seven facts about yourself (some random, some weird).
3. Tag seven people by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I'm not going tag anyone but if you read this and want to play along, have fun.

We have a busy weekend Jaime has soccer, Melissa has a party to go to and I still need my birthday dinner! We've had something going on all the time lately and we couldn't go last week when KU was playing because last year we ate at Ponack's for my birthday and KU lost that game so my husband said no way. I'm trying to talk him into going for lunch today and he'll be home to watch the KU game tonight. We'll see.

Kaitlyn is being inducted into the National Honor Society Sunday afternoon!

Have a nice weekend.
