I know this is an excuse, but......

I got up and cleaned today then I went thrift store shopping. My two little ones are growing so fast and the baby is growing like a weed. There is a big Thrift store in the next town.

It is run totally by donations and volunteers. It has moved several times, but now is in an old factory on ground level. They are a non-profit and they help organizations within the community. It has been up and running since 1979 I believe.

They get clothing with tags on them and also high end good used clothing every week.So many times kids clothing is not wore out just that they grow so fast. I got a grocery bag, large brown paper bag, full for $7.43. I came home and washed everything and it is all ready for them to wear.

Rummage sales haven't started here yet. I figure after Easter they will be going crazy.

So back to an excuse. . The wind is blowing and the trees are blooming and so are my allergies. I was outside some today between going to the thrift store and walking in and out to the garage and I can sure tell I am stuffed up.

Jeff has started another window frame and trim work. Hopefully he can get all the kitchen work done within the next week. I love my windows.

I have been a good girl this week and got my Mother's taxes to the accountant and also my DIL got mine done for me. So today I filed the rest of the paperwork. So I have a file to add receipts for next year when we have to go through this.

 My son is going back to work tomorrow so that will be a relief for them. Going without a paycheck with four kids in the house is scary. They managed for a week and it will be tight for a couple weeks, but they will make it.

Now I am back to figuring out what to do with all this sewing that needs to be completed. I think I have almost 22 tops to quilt. Tomorrow I am going to go in and clean off my tables to get ready to do machine quilting. I need to wind bobbins.

They are easy to do now with the new machine. I really like the machine so I will be trying a couple different style quilting techniques in the near future.

Hope everyone has a good evening. Chris

I daren't count my to-be-quilted pile. But like you it'd be about 20+ and I want to get them all quilted this year. I'm glad your son is going back to work :-)
