Off Topic (for me anyway)

I did a little side project that was completed today. I don't usually do that much that's crafty, but these were so cute, and I have an occasion to give them! I used this Heather Bailey Pattern. Pretty simple, even though I'm not that used to sewing things that aren't flat.















By the way, if you haven't read Click, Clack, Moo, you really should. It's really a cute book.

The new GPS came and so far we've found 2 caches with it - fairly easily too! It works so much better under tree cover than the iphone does, it's not even funny. We feel much more successful now! Whew!

Today's Quilt Wall


Today's Quilt Wall
Originally uploaded by theercs
I got a baby quilt top started today. It's not really laid out yet, just stuck up on the wall. But it sort of matches my shakers on the shelf above! Huh! I wish I got this much done every Monday!

Yesterday I tried this recipe for Baked Ravioli (without the sausage or beef, and spinach ravioli), and it turned out pretty good! Actually better tonight as leftovers (like many baked pasta dishes).

Our geocaching has been very unfruitful as of late. Unable to find, closed trails, kind of frustrating. We have a new GPS on the way - I'm sure that will solve all our problems!

Jenni and I had a little exchange, and she sent this wonderful gift from Australia, with real Australian fabric! It's so interesting, and has cool little ants on it! So much fun!
