I headed to the Calico Hutch in Hayward,MN today. I know it’s hard to believe but I needed some fabric and they were having a sale. Here’s a backing with a red binding that came home with me. I like a busy medium print for my backing because I’m not a perfect quilter and it won’t show much on this fabric.
And on my way home I stopped at Walmart and bought this beautiful green planter bowl along with all the other mundane stuff. Then I stopped at the thrift store where I found this little stool which will be waiting for me to finish a circular punch needle piece to cover the top. More projects on my list. Just as I was wondering what else I would write about, the UPS truck pulled up and brought me a box from Amazon. I love Amazon – I don’t go many places but that doesn’t mean I don’t shop – ha! I order books every week, sometimes more than once. I will review the quilt book just as soon as I get a chance to read through it. And there’s “After You” – I had already ordered it and forgotten. I can hardly wait to start reading but have started another book in the meantime.
March Madness is living up to its name – Iowa won this afternoon in overtime at 1.3 seconds with a tip-in shot just like one of the games last night. Number 2 seeds going home in the first round? Unbelievable! But that’s what makes this so much fun and why I love it so much!
And my most exciting news — my baby chicks will arrive in the mail the first part of next week! As soon as they hatch they are mailed to my post office and when they arrive, I will receive a phone call to come and pick them up. As they peck their way out of the shell, they are able to live for 72 hours on the nutrition from the yolk of the egg. I will take pictures every step of the way and post every detail. I haven’t had baby chicks since 2009 and some of those hens are still alive and still laying eggs.
More games tonight – really, I think this is my favorite 2 weeks of television of the whole year!
Ollie says “hey!”
