A trip to the Joann store in Ames was a welcome trip.The weather is not warm enough to garden but warm enough for a day trip.We ate at Hickory Park again.Good food!
We went to Lowe's for electrical wire. More progress for the new laundry area. YAY! We found a globe that fit the fan/light fixture. That is finished.
The weather was so nice yesterday Mr. T could use the cement mixer to finish the pad for the washer/dryer. That was so much easier than mixing by hand.
We stopped at Story City,on the way home, at the antique mall. They had a lot of dolls. I found one in my budget. She needs a body. That will be my weekend project. I know very little about China dolls.This one just caught my eye she will be at least 18 inches when done. I love her face.Well that was my week. Hope you all have a great weekend.j
Mr.T. made a bit more progress on the back porch(soon to be laundry room).
Ceiling is in,Fan and light is up. Cement pad 1/2 done today. Much more to do but we are not in a hurry. Mr. T does not have a hurry up button! But his work is the best!
I worked on the Feb. little quilt challenge. Broken dishes from Kathleen Tracy.
I feel I am getting better but then I look at the finished blocks and see I am still losing points at the edges. Should have sewn a scant 1/4 inch seam.
Oh well it is for me so no matter.
I should know to quit when it is late but i wanted to get it done.Can you see my mistake? So I took out the last row and redid it.Much better. By the end of the year I should have a little quilt with no mistakes. Ha!
The back and batting are now pinned on ready to quilt it.
Have a great week. 36 days till spring!! j

It is already Wed.Where does the time go? This month our daughter and oldest grand daughter have a birthday. Oldest daughter does not like birthdays so pretend I didn't mention it.
Our DGD turned 18 this week.Time goes by so fast.Love u Hallie.
This week I finally finished hand and machine quilting the Pin wheel quilt.Pattern by Kathleen Tracy. I added doves to the center and some heart buttons. I can use it for Valentines day. Glad to finish it before the day.
Yesterday when I opened the greenhouse door there was such a wonderful scent. My star jasmine plant was blooming.Just 2 small flowers filled the space with a heavenly scent.
The shamrock and geraniums are blooming again.
The poinsettia from 2010 has turned and has a bloom.What a treat.
Spring will be here soon.Have a good rest of the week.j
