Black and White Log Cabin
Sometimes I just have to make a quilt because . . . something. Something I don't know yet. Even though babies like black and white, I just can't see this as a baby quilt. I'll snug it up around a pool noodle, and then one day, I'll say, "Oh, that's why I made it." The fabric is a kit from Maywood Studio, and I bought it at work.
Sometimes it takes being gone for a few days to be really, really happy at home. I loved being gone, loved the ladies I was sewing with, but now I'm loving being home. I feel much more content tha before I left.
I'm making potato salad with red potatoes from Aldi. We have a new Aldi not a mile from my house. I didn't think I'd like it, no special reason why not. What I'm finding is that I really like the produce. I can walk in with my bag, fill it up with produce, and walk out feeling good because I spent less and because many of their things are organic.
I don't really need a cart, but in case I did . . . you put a quarter in the cart rack to get a cart. When you return the cart, you get a quarter back. No shopping carts floating around the parking lot. No paying for someone to corral carts. No car dings from unruly carts. It's kind of civil.
