A Day Out

Pat and I decided to go out today.  We drove to Wilkes Barrie (which is farther than our normal shopping area.) I was searching for a Bed, Bath and Beyond because I wanted to buy some more reed diffusers. Have you tried them yet?  I have one that is made by Yankee Candle.  Used it for more than 8 months and it still smells great.  I bought another brand to put in our walk in closet and after a month or two I can't even smell it.  Anyway I bought two more of the Yankee Candle variety.  I'm taking the lilac one to the studio and haven't decided where to put the other.  Maybe the closet.  

We also visited Staples to have a pattern printed at 200%.  I'll share more info about this possible quilt once I decide if I can make it or not.  Last thing I picked up was a cable to connect my mp3 to my mini speakers.  I used the one that came with the speakers in my car.  How cool is it to hook up my mp3 directly to the car?? Very cool.  With the new cable I can also hook it up to my speakers and listen to audio books from Net Library.  (hey, maybe I'll finish the book I started 2 months ago.) 
Then we had a great burrito somewhere... I can't remember the restaurant's name.  Did a bit more shopping before we went to a movie. If I haven't mentioned it I was a school librarian for 15 years or so.  And, I love kid's books.  Don't read them as much as I did but wanted to see The Tale of Despereaux, the movie adaption of Kate DeCamillo's Newbury award winning book.  It was a nice picture.  Come on, how exciting could it be with a G rating!  But we both enjoyed it and got a few laughs.  The book is great for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders, especially as a read aloud.  Pat's a trooper to go these shows with me.  

I've got a finish to share but no photos until tomorrow.  I completed the sweatshirt and it turned out great.  I was happy to use some buttons from my button collection.  I'm also stitching down the binding on a lap quilt.  

Today's photo is from the town of Milford, Pa.  We visited this summer and had to get a picture of the trash can with the quilt design.  Pretty cool.

  2. Hi Bonnie,

    My daughter lives in Milford. It is a beautiful area. Taxes and housing are reasonable. The people are nice.
    BTW, did you finally receive the fabric?
