Sometimes the Best Laid Plans . . .

go awry!!

Found out today that several different things are going to slow our adventure out to the Oregon Coast way down!!  I am hoping we are just amidst a detour but since I have aways placed this adventure in the Lord's domain and in His timing, that may mean we will be staying here in Logan, at least for the forseeable future!!  But I am still noodling things around in my head and one never knows what is in store!!  :-))

Not such a bad thing if we are here for awhile longer!!  I love Logan and if it had not been for a little mid-life crisis, I would never have even thought to leave this wonderful place and all my wonderful friends here!!

So, onward and upward with a smile in my eyes and a happy (and a little sad) heart!!

Wedding Skirts

A couple of weeks ago I was working frantically to get 18 little skirts done for a friend's wedding!  They got completed and the wedding was a smash!!

Are they cute or what?  :-))

Look What I Found . . .

at the Dollar Store!!

I just can not use a thimble.  It is awkward, regardless of the type I try and my finger gets major claustrophobia!!  So, one day after I had been binding a quilt with my bare finger and had poked it enough times that it was bleeding, I put a bandaid over the boo-boo.  And then I had an ah-ha moment and started using bandaids as my "thimble"!!

and look what I found ~

Colored bandaids!!  And at the Dollar Store!!  This is what you call a Cheap Thrill!!

So, through trial and error, I found that if I cut one end of the bandaid off and place it right on my finger where the needle hits, I have a bit more padding and the "thimble" lasts longer.

Then, I put the short cut-off end at the bottom and then rap the un-cut end over the finger and over the cut end.  It stays in place and and then when I am done, I just remove the "thimble" and start with a fresh one next time I need a "thimble"!!  Works great but don't wrap it TOO tight because then your finger will start to throb!!  Trust me on this one!!  :-))

Off to Stevensville, Montana in the morning for a quilt show and lots of beautiful scenery!!  Until next time!!
