Days 19-23

Just 8 days to go and I've still been a good girl. Of course it helps that I've been REALLY busy at work and haven't had the energy to shop after I get off. In fact I haven't had the energy to do anything at all so mostly I've just worked and slept. This will pass but the rest of this week and most of next week will be more of the same. So if you don't hear from me again I'm okay - just tired!

I'm way behind on my blog reading. And moslty I'm reading thru bloglines and not really having the time to actually go to your blogs to leave comments. So I haven't forgotten you just not had the time to come visit. Hopefully I'll catch that up on the long weekend. But there are many projects both around the house and quilty planned for my 3 days (plus I might be taking work home too) so I probably won't be getting much computer time in.

Because a post is boring without a picture, this is the contents of a goody package I received in the mail from Nadine. You might remember that I sent her some Lily of the Valley fabric and this was her thank you.

Love that cat fabric (and I didn't already have it!) and the welcome kitty is now hanging in my office with my other cat things. The buttons have been put with my collection of cat buttons. Yes I do have a collection of cat buttons. LOL! Those will go on a special project one day. Just haven't found quite the right project yet. Again Thank you Nadine for these lovely things. Isn't it just amazing how everyone knows to send me cat stuff? LOL! A few weeks ago Finn sent me some Heartstrings blocks and also included a wonderful cat fabric that is slated for a special project very soon. I thought I had a picture of it on my thumbdrive but I guess I never took one. I'll have to remedy that soon as this fabric is soooooo cool! Be watching next week for it's project as I hope to do it this weekend.

Better get to work. I'm the only one here this week and it's a payroll week so I've got a LOT to do. If I don't talk to you again, have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Work can take a lot of time away from real life, but sometimes it is fun. Hope yours is fun. Mine has been taking a lot of time as well.

Great new cat stuff. Have a great weekend. Love you.

Oh, I sure hope you get to rest up and do a few fun things over the weekend. All work and no play makes Nancy a tired, cranky quilter! Well - maybe not cranky - I can't imagine you are ever cranky - but certainly tired. What a cute pin and neat fabric from Nadine!

Love the cats on that fabric.

Hope work calms down for you and that you get a chance this weekend to unwind and slow down a bit.

I'm proud of you for your no buy. I've failed miserably...............

Love the cat fabric, and the cat! My best way not to shop is not to go in the store and not to go online. So if the computer and the truck are broken at the same time, I don't shop. =)

Hooray for you, I love the cat fabric, even though I am not a lover of cats, I like dogs. But we don't have one, we are gone too much. Hope your weekend is filled with lots of fun things, but remember we all need to be quilting memories!!!!!!
