As You May Well Have Imagined...

That title there is specifically for MamaGriffith. It's the phrase used in our pilates video that makes us both cringe every time. I'm not sure exactly what it is but it just rubs my eardrums the wrong way. I do have a confession to make, I am a slacker without a workout partner. MamaGriffith has been gone and though I have the pilates video at my house, my bed is just too comfy in the morning and I am really good at making excuses.
I like excuses. This blog post for instance is just an excuse so that maybe someone might stop by my blog and notice that I redecorated my site. I love the "country quilt" background from shabbyblogs, it makes me want to pull out my fabric and quilt. I did pull out my fabric yesterday but for the purpose of giving more of it away. Missionaries that our church supports in Mexico just started a quilting group and have asked for donations of fabric because they have more and more women coming and less and less fabric available so I decided that I should stop hoarding and send some along. I sent along two brown paper bags full and yet my fabric tubs (yes, thats tubs, plural) are still mostly full, anyone want to come learn how to quilt?
I thought it was suppose to rain this week but so far only sprinkles so the kids and I have been playing outside. I even ran a rope down our property line all by myself. This is quite a feat considering the back half of our property is overgrown wetlands with not just standing water, but moving water. I'm excited to get outside and work on the yard, even I am not immune to cabin fever.
I hope you have a wonderful day!

I love your new background too. I almost said as much last night as I was catching up on all the blogs I haven't read in five days. It's very you. And makes me miss you. And *I* want to come learn how to quilt! Can Mags and I come down in February some time? I've got a project that just won't come!

i love it too. I need to experiment with different backgroungs, but somehow I always manage to screw up my layout more than when I started. Ugh.

I love fabric. Sometimes I buy fabric even though I have no idea what I'd ever use it for...just because it' pretty. Someday I hope to get a machine and make things :)

LOVE the new background! It is perfect!!! Makes me wish I was a quilter or at least good at some "crafty" thing. :o)
