2095SnorkelingSnoopy A while back I wrote a post about purging things we’ve accumulated over the past 12 years in this house. I figured it would make things easier when we downsize in a few years.

Well my job just got a whole lot easier! We woke up yesterday to 5 inches of water in the basement. Sump Pump! Again!

Rainbow Scrap Challenge and a Winner!

It really has been a long time since I posted anything for the scrap challenge. I finally got to play around a little this week. The color this month is black!

Scrap Thingy's 308 Today I’ll try and finish these up. I am spending the whole day sewing. My wonderful husband is spending the day with Morgan. It’s college day in Philadelphia and they get to visit all museums and other attractions for free. My husband loves museums, so I’m sure they’ll have a wonderful day!

And now what you’ve been waiting for, the random generator picked # 15.

                     DIANE you are the winner!

Thank you all for entering the giveaway.

Morgan says thank you for all the birthday wishes!

I started these blocks yesterday. Don’t know where they’re headed. I’m auditioning fabrics for a background right now. I’m thinking yellow and white. Or maybe beige and brown. What do you think?
