Accuquilt Go Giveaway!!

There have been several of these giveaways going on! I found a new to me blog and they are giving one away! How great is that?! So, check out Canton Village Quilt Works for their Accuquilt Go Giveaway!

I sure would love to have one of these. It would make quilting for me a lot easier! With 5 kids running around, working full time and all the extras that life throughs at us including Karate. (of course we go to church to but I don't want that to sound like it is a burden-it is a previlige.)

God Bless.
Good Luck to everyone! :0)

Update on Cory's Quilt.

I wanted to post a picture of one of the blocks for Cory's quilt. I just put the white sashing around the Rail Fence block. I like it. Looks kind of rough in this stage because the white still looks like it hasn't been ironed or maybe it's the way I stitched it. Anyway....the Rail Fence block was about 15 1/2" to 16 " So I think when I put the white sashing on it brought it up to about 22 1/2" to 23". I didn't really measure after finishing it. I want to hurry up and post and go to bed. It's late! :0)

I have another fabric that I am going to go around this with when I get all of the blocks lined out in the white. I have 6 in all and want to make it as large of a quilt for my 9 year old as possible. I really think he is going to like it. I can't wait to see how it turns out. I guess we'll have to wait and see won't we?!

I Love quilting.....don't you?

My Day Didn't Turn Out the Way That I Pictured It.....

Ok. So, today didn't go as planned and I didn't get to do things exactly how I had imagined but....I got a lot done! I have 2 very clean kids rooms (it's easy when you bag up all their toys!) LOL

Made about 3 pounds of Pinto Beans, have a gallon bag froze and then some in the frig for tomorrow, made Tacos for dinner, Made 2 Beef and Bean Burritos, 3 Bean Burritos and put in the freezer. A FULL gallon size bag of Taco soup, 2 gallon bags of Chili. So, that is very good for me to get to accomplish! I have some Great Northern Beans soaking so I can cook them tomorrow and freeze. :0) I love having a big freezer!

Cooking Ahead! My Agenda for today.

I have several things that I need to accomplish today. The kids go back to school on Tuesday. I want to have some things frozen for their lunches so we can grab and go.'s a list of some of the things I plan to prepare.

Chili (for Chili or Chili Dogs)
Taco Soup
Refried Bean Burritos
Pinto Beans (for beans and cornbread-My Favorite!)

These will get us through a couple of days for them. Plus they take other things throughout the week from leftovers. That is the one thing that I love about where they go to school. They will heat their food for them.....whatever they take.

So....I'm off to get started.

Anyone have any other ideas for lunches....please feel free to let me know. I welcome them. :0)

Still have to finish up painting in MG's room. Ughhhh.....
