Quilts for Kids

Here's one of the quilts ready to be shipped for Quilts for Kids. I finally got it quilted/washed/dried. Came out really nice. I'm sure some little boy will really enjoy it!

Happy Birthday!

Today is my birthday! I can't believe another year has gone by. Where does the time go? Jared has finished his first year of college and will be home in two weeks. Kaylee is almost done her junior year of high school and is preparting to do dual enrollment next year at Fitchburg State College. WOW!

I would like my birthday present to be: when the kids have to be 7 yr and 5 yrs for one day. Wouldn't that be wonderful. Yes, I know, it can't happen. So I will have to pretend.

Actually, I"m off to work today to play with the residents. I don't mind, I like my job. I'm an Activity Asst at a Nursing Home. I'll come home though to a clean house, beautiful dinner on the table and a nice relaxing evening with family and friends!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Disney outfit

A coworker of mine is going to Disney this week with her husband and three boys. I think the boys ages are 7,3 and 1! They are driving from Mass down to Orlando! I hope she has enough batteries for the DVD player! LOL

She asked me to make some shorts for the younger two boys. I also put Mickey Heads on the white t-shirts. Here's a peak of the youngest ones outfit!

Can't wait to see a pic of the boys in their outfits!

Coupons, Rebates, oh My!

Recently I came upon a blog, couponingtodisney.com. What a blog! She tells how she uses coupons, rebates, etc to save for a trip to Disney. Now, I've used coupons here and there before and have never really gotten on the bandwagon. Well, I think I'm going to jump on!

I've printed some coupons out, got the Sunday paper and even signed up for a coupon exchange train. I'm going to see how much I can save over a six month period and see what I come with! I wonder if another vacation would be on our horizon?

Do you use coupons/rebates? Hope everyone is having a great day!

Potholder Swap

I joined the Potholder Swap 2 at www.duringquiettime.com with Amy. We had to sew two potholders and send them to your partner.

Here's a pic of the goodies I got from my swap partner, Tiffany!

What a wonderful gift! Potholders, handmade soap, and fabric! I've never seen the potholder with grommets..they came out really nice!

Thank you so much, Tiffany! You did outstanding!

Happy Easter

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. The weather here in New England was absolutely gorgeous. Couldn't have asked for better weather. We headed down to my parents house for dinner with family and friends. After dinner we had an Easter egg for the little ones.

Have a super day!
