The Friday 15

While last week I didn't get rid of any blue clothes, I've decided to go ahead and send some away this week.

I've also come across way too many cans of lavender air freshener. Don't need them. Heck, I don't even like the smell of them.

And those fabric blocks I tried to make a quilt with but then decided I didn't like so much? Yep, they are going.

Who keeps a cable for a cell phone they no longer have? Not me anymore.

What about tanning lotion from the tanning bed place? That place folks in this house went to for a only three months in their entire lives.

An old wallet, a hand towel, and a magnet from Hawaii round things out to make 15 heading either to the donation bag or the trash.

Sewing for Good Sunday

Here we go with another Sewing for Good Sunday. Although since today is Superbowl Sunday it should technically be .... tax day for me.

Usually I spend Superbowl Sunday holed up with tax forms and paperwork. It is one of the few days of the year when hubby is occupied enough where he doesn't step away from the TV to bug me about anything. (As opposed to every other day of the year when he still watches TV all day but also bugs me ever so often.)

But knowing today would be Sewing for Good Sunday I did the taxes earlier this week. Late at night when he was half asleep watching some who-knows-what program on TV.

So that left me with today for making for quilt tops for the Quilts for Kids Organization. Two more done:

and another set of blocks completed. 
At some point I need to stop piecing tops together and start the quilting process. But that day isn't today and I suspect won't be next week, either. Soon, though. 

(You know, after I take the pictures and put them on here I then sometimes realize I really don't like the way they look. They looked great while I was working on them, but stepping away at the end changes my thoughts on my work. Ugh.)

10 Things Every First-Time Cruiser Should Know

On most Saturdays you'll find me posting cruise-related articles, tips, and photos. Today I'd like to share an article written by Ken Budd at AARP. You might recognize one of the people being quoted in the article. (That would be me. I'd share the link on Facebook but I don't do Facebook.)

Check it out:

10 Things Every First-Time Cruiser Should Know

I also have a couple other first-time cruiser events going on next month. If you're in the Boise area, consider checking one of them out. I'd love to have you!

The Friday 15

The other day as I was getting out of bed I realized I kind of overdo it in the blue department.

I got out from under my blue sheets.
Which were covered by my blue comforter.
I put on my blue slippers.
I looked at the blue clothes and blue robe and blue towel
hanging on the blue wall by the side of my bed.
I opened my t shirt drawer to finally find something not blue. I've got pink. And blue. (The clothes looking black? Nope, just dark blue.)


While I'm not getting rid of anything blue - at least not yet - I am getting rid of 15 black clothing items I've been holding onto for a year or so. I've been hoping to cut them up and do something with them but it's not going to happen. Now if they were blue it might be a different story. But they aren't, so there goes 15 more items out of my home. 
Yay me for knowing when to hold them, when to fold them, when to walk away, and when to run. (Sorry, I got carried away...Kenny Rodgers' song is on the Casey Kasem Top 40 station I'm listening to right now.)
