This little baby was $24,500. There are diamonds in between the pearls. We figured we could buy it together and share it. Wouldn’t it be perfect for those quick trips to the bottle return?


Atop the Empire State Building.  Oh-we walked the last 6 flights to the top.  They said it would be quicker!


Our visit also included the American Girl Shop, Macy’s,  Rockefeller Center, The Metropolitan Museum Store, the M&M’s store and the Hershey’s store.


This is exactly how I have been feeling lately.MP900430986

Usually I love the change to the fall season-the cooler weather, putting up decorations, cooking comfort foods.  But not so this year. I have been grumpy; I am always tired and I don’t feel like doing anything.

Enough is enough.  I decided that my sewing room needs to be cleaned so I sorted through and rearranged some of my collection.  I got rid of some school stuff that I had been hanging onto “just in case”.  Tomorrow I will have my husband help me get out and put up my fall stuff.  I will not feel sorry for myself anymore!

In the midst of all this, Lauren, Linda (Lauren’s boyfriend’s mom) and I went to NYC for the day.  We did have a good time.  I will post pictures soon.  And Tuesday’s Tip will return!

Tuesday’s Tip September 7, 2010

Yikes! It’s Tuesday! I woke up thinking it was Friday.  Wishful thinking, I guess.

I did not get pictures yet for my original tip but here is a great tip that I read on the Keepsake Quilting website:

A quilter suggested that each time you finish a binding, save and attach the leftover to your other leftover binding strips.  Then when you finish a scrap quilt, you will have a binding ready to go-or at least started. Brilliant!  I may even start making my bindings a little longer (when I haven’t miscalculated the length) so that I can keep ahead.  Note to self: check my scrap basket for all those binding strips I have thrown in there.

Also, if you have a tip you would like to share, send it along to me.  If I post your tip, I will link back to you and send you a fat quarter (my choice) to you for your time

Hope to hear from you soon!.
