I had been duped. Why can't I just keep on walking? Why do people think it is their right to basically rip people off? This has bothered me for a couple of days now. I know I have to let it go but I really don't know how.

Why did I never try this before? I am always looking for a potholder. I have 3 but they always seem to be hiding from me. In just a few minutes, I had 2 more using up some of the yarn I bought to make the cup holders that I am now bored with.

WHY am I so stubborn? I never think anything is going to be good enough to give to someone. Brenna loved it and some day, Lucy will be dragging it around behind her and she will love it too.

I went to the post office yesterday and look what was waiting there for me. I got a package from Cynthia, all the way from Tennessee. She might be one of my long lost relatives since my people came from Tennessee.
Her daughter named the apron Home Sweet Home and I think that is just a great name.

A month or so ago, I must have had a minute or two to get bored because I cut what was left of these fabrics from the first quilt a long Amanda Jean did into small squares.
I think they are 2 1/2" squares. I packed them all neatly into small school box and have been carrying them around with me in the car. I am sure I thought I would do something with them.
It has crossed my mind that I thought I would just make some nine patch blocks by hand and put them together for a nice little quilt. That seems a little boring though. It also crosses my mind that maybe I thought I would turn them into those little things that make a grandma's flower garden. I really like those but don't have a clue how to do it.
Any ideas from you what the would be good for? Or better yet, can you tell me how to make those little stop sign looking things?

I bought this apron and dish towel from Thevillagegiraffe on etsy and I really hope my swap partner likes it. I did make a coordinating dishcloth to go with it and sent THE BEST punch recipe you will ever try.
I asked a friend in my office to "model" it so I could post it but she asked not to have her face shown.

I thought about selling them on etsy but I see that there are already a few people doing that so I will just keep on doing what I do and if someone wants to pay me for them, I will let them and if they don't I'll just give it to them.
