I Love Thursday #26 – End of March
This is our 26th post of loves for the week. That is half a year we’ve been looking for the little bright spots to share each week. We post these loves each Thursday along LeeAnna on blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find inspiration.
A new book, Fall From Grace by Danielle Steel. I just started reading it on Monday and I have to say it is a quick, easy and good read. Finished by Wednesday, I often wondered how things were going to be resolved. I don’t usually read Ms. Steel but this was suggested to me by the library. I’m guessing they base their suggestions on my current book checkouts. Why not give it a try I thought?! I believe she often writes romance novels, and this does have a little of that genre.
Quilt patterns everywhere. I get a weekly (or sometimes more often actually) email from Barnes & Noble. They share new releases, and I noticed this book cover. I think this would make a really cute quilt! The colors appeal to me and I can totally see different quilting in each ‘block’. It’s not just me, right?! I’ll bet you see inspiration for quilts or quilt patterns throughout your daily life, too.
Grocery shopping. I can’t say I really love going grocery shopping BUT I get it over with on Thursdays. I go right after work and often still beat Sue home. This opens the door for lots of sewing on Saturdays or Dominic visits. Is this a chore you enjoy? Do you get it out of the way for the weekend?
Grip Its – a new product I heard about on Facebook. I don’t own them (yet) nor am I affiliated with them in any way. They are two 1/4″ thick acrylic pieces about the size of your hand with large rubber grips on the bottom of each piece. You would place one of these on each side of the needle to assist you with moving the fabric around for FMQ. They replace the need for gloves, and are suppose to ease neck and shoulder tension. I do have issues in that area, so I am giving these some serious thought.
Dominic spent Saturday morning with us again. He is developing quite a personality and continues to be a true joy to us! He really is our rainbow miracle baby. Here is Mr. Big Boy sitting in his new Elmo chair. He’s too little to sit in it by himself yet but it won’t be long and he’ll be crawling in it whenever he wants.
He’s going to be seven months old shortly. ~smile~
That’s it for this week! I hope your week is filled with many blessings. Happy Thursday!
