My 200th Post!

I can't believe Jill and I are on our 200th posts in the same week! We really must have a lot to say. Since she's doing a drawing, I thought I would give away a gift as well. I have a quilt pattern I think will make the perfect gift for one of my quilting blogging friends. So leave a comment and I'll pick a winner on Thurs. to receive the gift. What better way to celebrate my b-day than to give a gift!
It was a busy weekend for Paul and I. We took our mothers out to supper at Red Lobster on Fri. night and had a nice visit. Saturday I worked at The Sewing Center. I work there on Saturdays when they have shows which take away some of their staff. We were fairly busy which made for a fast day. When I got home Paul had the carpet torn off the stairs and was working on what he needed to replace them. Then he started playing with his new toy a 4GB MP3 player. It's the one I want for my birthday, so we'll see if I get one just like it or not. I know he bought my present while I was working. We went to Hobby Lobby for more flower stuff and dropped that off at my aunts. Then we went to Menard's for the stairs supplies. We had supper and it was late when we got home. I was just exhausted!
Sunday I slept in for the first time in weeks. I went to church and then Paul and I did some errands. I stopped at the Quilt Corral Too and got the other fabric I needed for my Miranda bag. We roamed the mall and picked up our cake topper and a gift for a friend. Then we went to Runnings and I found the boots I wanted, so got those as well. When we got home I cleaned house, changed the bed, and then decided to relax. I sewed the backs for my YBR quilts, ironed all my fabric for my Miranda, and started making the towne purse for my future MIL. I got about half done with it when I cut it wrong. I knew I was tired, so time for bed.
Last night we met with Fr. Mark to do our FOCUS questionaire as part our marriage prep. I was tired when we got home, so no sewing for me. Guess I'll try to get something done tonight and get the pictures of my bed taken.

100 and 200 must be our lucky numbers this week! How fun! Maybe we should all play the lottery now?

We aren't surprised to see that there is purple on your new blog design! 200 postings - that is quite an accomplishment - it will be along time before I am there! You are so busy, what with work and wedding stuff and house stuff - good to hear that you sleep in once in awhile!
