New Day, New Start

I'm starting a new project today. I'm going to use the "Tom & Jerry" fabric I found at the LQS. I just couldn't resist. I know I have a ton of UFOs, but really, they are UFOs for a reason! Maybe one of these days I'll take an inventory of UFOs. Opps, that might not be a good idea. I've seen the boxes where they are all stored. Maybe I could do a new project and then an old one. Any suggestions? Do I just have to bite the bullet and do them?

I really need to start on my Christmas projects. I read on a blog somewhere that it's only 222 days away. I have at least three Christmas projects I'd like to do before it's time to decorate. Actually, I'd like to have them finished before our guild quilt show.

Sara is Sara. She went to a concert last night with her boyfriend. Dashboard Confessional was playing in downtown Columbus. I guess the tickets were free for OSU students.

Time to run. Maybe I can get Jeff to take me out to eat, and then start my new project!

Finally, Something Quilty

I just finished this quilt top for our local quilt shop. I'm really not a scrappy kind of girl. I find them hard to do, guess I just need more structure.

While we were out for Mother's Day, I snapped a couple photos of Sara. She's not fond of having her picture taken, and that makes it hard for me, since I love to take pictures of her!

Happy Days

So the princess did come home this weekend. She wasn't going to, but changed her mind. I know she wants to do some studying this weekend, that should work out just fine. I am going to work at Material Girl on Saturday, so she will have some alone time on Saturday. Then it's off to Amish Door for a Mother's Day celebration. We all decided to go out to eat on Saturday instead of Sunday.

One of the local proms is this weekend, and I think she will probably go watch the walk-ins. Seems like just yesterday that she was going off to prom herself. Hard to believe that she is about finish her second year at OSU.

I spent my day cleaning up my house. Did some deep cleaning. Now I just need to get into my sewing room and dig it out. I'm working on a project for the shop. As soon as I get a few more blocks done, I'll a take a couple of pictures and post them.

Credit Card Woes

So here we go again! Remember the post about Ticketmaster charging my credit card three times for one transaction? We finally got that all settled. Ticketmaster did credit my account for the $320.00. One disaster averted.

Tonight, I received a phone call from my credit card company fraud unit. Must be my lucky day. Someone used my credit card number on a website for swimsuits to the tune of $1100.00. Who needs that many suits? I'm really glad that the card company is keeping a close look on my account.

Now my next worry will be identity theft.

I'm not sure where or how anyone got my number. I have two possibilities. I recently sent my laptop in for service at Best Buys, and the fiasco with Ticketmaster. I hope it wasn't either of those. Makes me nervous to think that someone is using my card.

I told my daughter about it, and that we can't use our credit card til we receive new ones. I had to laugh, she said "What are you going to do?" My response.....we'll pay the old fashion way....Cash! Kids, they are so use to using plastic for everything.

Quilt Show and Flag Company Tour

The title just about sums up my Friday. We had a tour of the Coschocton flag company yesterday. They are the largest retail (ie Target and Walmart) flag maker in the United States! The picture of our tour guide is posted. He is a cutie. He told us before we started the tour that he has seven children and then they adopted three more, nine girls and one boy! We were teasing about all the weddings he had to look forward to. His idea of a wedding is a ladder and cash at the top of it. What a funny young man. Here's Joe:

The quilt show was really nice. Not too many people there. Probably the bad economy in our area. I have tons of pics, but nothing super special to show you.

This is a picture of the ladies who when on the tour and to the quilt show. I've got to stop hanging out with all these old people!! gg
