When the four of these blocks are set together they will form a big pinwheel in the center and a diamond shape around it. I think it will be very visually interesting and I think I might need to use a bright, hurt your teeth lime for the binding.
I love Maybelline cosmetics, always have. I am a big fan of their regular pink bottle mascara in Blackest Black but about a month ago I needed a new one and thought I'd give their new Colossal mascara a try. It comes in a huge fat yellow and purple tube and costs between $2 and $3 more than the other one. And it stinks. Literally, and kind of a mix between sour beer and urine. It smells so badly I only used it when absolutely necessary (LOL!) and it gave me a headache every time. And after only a month it turned to a weird globby gel so I am giving Colossal two thumbs down!
I have a moment of shame for today. After skipping breakfast and running errands for an hour I was starving and (with another hour of errands in front of me) I ate a Frito I found on the seat of my car. It's okay 'cause I dropped it there on Friday.
Today our weather was WEIRD, having had snow last week it was in the 70's today!! Jeremiah and Hannah and I took a walk this evening, and I am SO FRIGGING OUT OF SHAPE. My legs hurt. My back hurts. Sigh. I lost over 20lbs since last June but haven't exercised. Need to start walking again. Must. Walk. Badly!
I love a Christian band from Australia called the Newsboys. In fact at one time (about 6 years ago) I owned every album they'd made, including a couple little known albums from back in Australia. I have a CD of theirs called Adoration and if you like praise and worship music at all, please go buy this CD! I think it came out in 2002. I was listening to it while driving today and I am so blessed everytime I listen to it, with every song. It's just beautiful! Probably it can be found on Half.com or Ebay.com for only a few dollars since it's not new, but it is SO worth it.
I got a wonderful squishy in the mail today from a kind lady named Sarah Nolt from Sarah's Quilts N Crafts on Etsy. She purchased a bag from me the other day and sent ME a thank you! Imagine that! The dark brown is a FQ, the gold is about 2/3rds of an FQ and the gold coins fabric is about 6"x22". Thank you, thank you! How pleasing and unexpected!
Well I think that is all the randomness I have in me for tonight. My babies are asleep, YAY! I need to go try to fool with my machine and get it to work, or I could actually go to bed early for once! Nah....
