I've been Tagged!!!!! A question about what to do with old quilt tops?? THANK YOU!! going out

I've been Tagged!!! (for my first time!!!)
Thank you Cheryl of Blueberry Buttons!!! http://blueberrybuttons2008.blogspot.com/
you should go for a visit!!! This is just one of her blogs... she has another where she makes dog treats!!! http://4pamperedpaws.blogspot.com/
I am ahhhh! A very talented woman!! I have fun just keeping up with one blog...
but she has three!



Well here goes....

FOUR

4 things I did today:

I seen a dog along side the road this morning... and daughter and myself...
took him back to his owner... made sure she (dog) didn't go back out into the road!!! (1)
I went with my youngest daughter to her old apartment to pack up her stuff.
I cleaned up some of the mess before we left... while she carried the boxed to my vehicle.
(Down three flights of stairs!!!)
Then we took her stuff to a storage unit.
(that was all one???) (2)

I asked a neighbor if I could cut some of his corn stalks for decorations...
leaving him the husks of corn!!!
I did cut it... leaving him the corn...
Then I put it up at the box covering up my trash containers. (3)

I picked up rocks surrounding an old flower bed... and moved them with my little red wagon...
to around a tree for now! (4)


4 things on my to do list:

1. Finish cleaning my basement... making shelves to hold my wood stash!!

2. Tear up the carpet in my livingroom... (after I convince hubby that the old brown stuff is crumbling!!! MAYBE SOME DAY SOON!!!)

3. Sew up some canvas bags for the vehicles of the family for Christmas...
have to do about 10 of them!!

4. Get a good head start on making Christmas gifts for both sides of the family!!
AND STOP PROCRASTINATING!!!

Honaorable mention.... to blog everyday... but not to spend the whole day at the puter!!!


4 of my guiltiest pleasures:

1. To spend all day at the puter reading everyones blogs!!!! (All day!!! O, but my house needs cleaned!!!!!!!!!!!!)

2. Eating the old fatting foods!! With lots of sodium... and cholesterol!!
(hubby had heart attack last year in July... so trying to be a good wife... and not keep that kind of stuff in the house for temptations!!! His or mine!!!!!!)
LOVE CHOCOLATE ANYTHING!!!

3. I absolutely adore going to yard or garage sales and flea markets!!!
(and auctions too, when I can!)

4. Closing off to the world... and just spending time doing all of my projects!!!


4 random facts about me:

well for 1. I would say I have adhd... can't keep my attention on one thing very long!!

2. constantly on trying to lose weight!!!!!!!!!!!!
(have fantasies of being 125 lbs again!!!) I know yeah, right!

3. love to cook fattening meals and desserts!!!

4. trying to fall alseep at night... I have to read... every night (at some point!)

so not sure what to do with it. HELP!!!!????

I would definitely have the double wedding ring quilted. I have several quilt tops that my grandmother pieced and have never had them quilted--want to one day--I just folded them and hung them over a door on a cabinet for awhile because they were so pretty. You may want to do that until you have that wedding ring one quilted.
I posted some things about me today so I'll have to do the whole tag thing a little later.

TO SWEET DEBI,

IT WAS NICE TO GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT YOU...
IT SEEMS THAT WE ALL SPEND FAR TOO MUCH TIME ON THE CP... AND THE HOUSEWORK GETS BEHIND! LOL
THE SAME THING HERE!
I TOO LOVE CHOCOLATE... AND WOULD LOVE TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT... NO MUCH LUCK YET... LOVE FATTY FOOD TOO MUCH! LOL
UNFORTUNATELY... I DON`T KNOW HOW TO QUILT EITHER... SO SADLY CAN`T HELP!
KISSES TO YOU

Good question about the quilt tops! I've made curtains and valances out of one that was too damaged to be in every day use on a bed. Another I found at a garage sale already half made into a jacket. I finished it and love it.

Oh my goodness Debi,
Thanks for tagging me and saying such nice things! My mind has been in such a blur this week and I am just getting back to blogging here the last couple of days. Thank you for being patient with me!
I'm just a little wiped out but hoping to get some energy built up again and be back to my old self!
Hope all is well with you, it looks like you have been busy!
Thanks again,
Robin~♥
