Satisfied Almost Saturday

How has your week in your studio been? There are a couple of you gals whom I've not heard from in a while. I surely hope you are well. Drop a line, let us know you're OK.

I told Cynthia of Home Matters First, that we weren't going to visit our grandaughter this weekend as planned. But Mama called and said the fever was gone, and they'd both had a good nap, so we will be on our way tomorrow morning, just till Sunday. That is the reason for almost Saturday.


In digging around in my studio, I came across several blocks of the month I'd started, there must be about a dozen sets. This one is from Maggie Walker's Country Journal. Are you familiar with her or this pattern? She designs really wonderful things, and this is definitely one of my favorites. So, along with finishing many other things I've had my hands on, this one joined the list, and I did finish this block this week. Sorry I don't have the end product here. Look at the picture in the corner?? I have two more to do, then it will be done. There is one problem, I can't find them. Geesh, And I've cleaned that room, I know they are somewhere in there, and I probably see them everyday. Did you buy your Girl Scout cookies yet? I don't even want to eat them anymore, they just don't taste like they used to to me, but I cannot resist those little Brownies. I was a scout leader for all 3 of our girls, certainly sold our share of cookies and calendars. They don't get much of the money, but I buy them anyway, don't you? So, here is my contribution to scouting. I hope they get to go camping or do something otherwise fun. Let us know how your week has gone, and if you had fun in your studio. I really enjoy hearing from you, you inspire me.

Blessings,

Linda

They are not for sale yet in our area, but I love Girl Scout cookies and I love helping out our little scouts :)

My favorites will always be thin mints! Yumm

Darling quilt, Linda!

I also buy GS cookies - love the Samoas!!! But, I do agree, they're not as good as they used to be AND there certainly aren't as many in a box as there used to be. Of course, that's a good thing I guess - less fat consumed!

Hi Sue
I love the thin mints too. I purposely didn't buy them, thinking our daughter who lives with us would. She hasn't!! Guess it will have to be me!

Hi Terrie
Do you like to bake? I have a recipe for a samoa cookie. Haven't tried it yet, though.
I may get to the local cross stitch store today, see what they have before I order. When I checked their website, it didn't show fabric. They must have something.
