I've had a lousy cold and for the last 3 days haven't left the couch except to feed the dogs, let them out and go to bed. I pretty much feel like this picture looks... out of focus, fuzzy and don't want to be bothered. 

This morning it was just a quick trip to the P.O. to pick up mail and back home. Weather was not so nice, lots of heavy wet snow and the Windstar decided it didn't like the slush on the way home. Note to self---- switch cars, use the all wheeler till the snow goes away.  Crawl home, try to turn into the drive and plow boys are here to do the drive.  I go around the 'block' and they should be done by the time I get back to my house. My block is a square mile, so that gave them plenty of time.  Oh Boy! slippery doesn't describe it. Did I mention my drive is uphill?  I go directly to the garage on top of the hill, do not stop, slow down, speed or it will be all over.  Switch the Windstar for the Escape. 

UH-OH no dog food.  Just another short trip out for a couple cans of dog food. As I was heading to the register, dog food in hand, I went down the soup isle.   While was looking at which can I wanted, somebody tapped me on the shoulder and gave me a coupon for the soup.  It was another customer in the store.  I knew I didn't look my best, but didn't think I looked so bad I needed a coupon to buy soup.  No energy to argue,  I took the coupon and dragged myself to the register.  It wasn't till I got home and realized I had on my sweats, my hair was a mess and I was wearing my coat with a broken zipper and I had it buttoned wrong.  I can only imagine what I looked like to those that saw me.

Oh Pat, my goodness sorry I missed this post...I am so sorry you are not feeling well, but let me tell you all I could do was laugh almost uncontrollably. Well, just so you know, we all do something like that now and then without thinking about our appearance. Hope you are feeling better now.

I also had a little giggle over your comment on my blog. But you are right, each person choses the path/paths they take in quilting. It is all about enjoyment. Why do it if you do not have fun doing it. You have a very strong quality of selecting fabrics that work fabulously with one another. I lack in that one, guess that is one of the reasons I love scrap quilting. LOL.

The book you sent me is being well used, my friend Maureen borrowed it and made a bargello quilt and I just keep looking and figuring what to do after this one. Hee, Hee. Which reminds me, I still need to finish that little something I am making for you....promise by the end of next year (just teasing).

I really need my email back! Best say my farewells and thanks for the wonderful blog and comment.
