Ozark Sampler SAL

I had a very busy day today!!! First, I had to run by the library and get turn in my overdue books. Yes, I know that is a very terrible of me but I lost track of time and they were a couple of days late. Then, I ran by my LNS and dropped off the models Mary loaned us for the retreat. I also told Sara that I wouldn't be able to attend camp. I decided to take a store credit for the majority of the cost except for the non-refundable part. I did manage to clean out most of my layway bag so that means I have even more projects to work to stitch. After that, off to the mall....I got an email yesterday telling me that the mall was offering free $10 GC to people who belong to the mall club. I also had a $10.00 GC to JC Penny' I did some shopping. I bought some new shorts for summer. My final stop was Wal-mart. The Bentonville Wal-mart is remodeling so it was a pain to figure out. They say it is shopper friendly...but it isn't!!! I always wonder why they don't put the bread and milk near the front of the store...but ours is all the way in the back. I guess it is so you might do some more shopping.

I came home and started working on my Ozark Sampler SAL. I have completed parts 1,2, 3, 4, and 6. Part 5....I need to work on.. I did decide to try out a new recipe for baked mac and cheese. It sounded good....It took an hour to make...and it tasted like doggie doo....yes you read that right...doggie doo!!! It was so bad my DH wouldn't eat it. I followed the recipe to the tee...but it was bad!!! So we had oreos for dinner!! Very healthy huh?

Stitching Question: Have you ever looked at a project you have started...was excited about at first but later look at it and decide you just HATE it?? I did that tonight. I love the Stoney Creek - Hometown Afghan design...I started stitching it on weeks dye works material. The more I looked at it...I just didn't like tonight.... I made the decision not to stitch it. I cut out the first part that I had done and now my kitty is laying on it. I plan to stitch this design but not sure if I want to stitch it on an actual afghan (like it calls for ) or to do individual squares and have it turned into a quilt. I am thinking the latter.

Ozark Sampler looking good - makes me feel bad, as I've fallen WAAAAAY behind on this one - I DO like it, just got out of the loop with it :o( Must get back to it. Must admit to 'throwing away' a couple of projects that I fell out of love with - doesn't seem worth stitching something I don't like when I have stash to last a lifetime!!

Nice progress.
I think blocks made into a quilt would be really neat.

I frequently have over-dues at the library, and I volunteer there!
I look at it this way, I am contributing to their budget in some regular, small way. LOL!
One time it was $18.00! Yes you read that right, eighteen dollars. They yelled at me in a nice way and said that if I couldn't get in to renew or do it online, just CALL them!
Hope Lulu makes it to New Delhi soon. Can be tiring for such a little one in such a small carrier.
