Sandy, I've never been so happy that I really really dislike mayo.

Comment by SandyO on Saturday

Well, Lynn, I had a few palpitations but not true cardiac arrest LOL!  I sent Gregg to our local grocery store for a few items and Hellman's mayo was one of them.  He came back with the right thing but when I looked at the register slip I about croaked!  $5.79 for a 30 oz. jar ONE SALE!  Regular price was over $7.  Not in my world, thank you very much!  I took it back and bought Kraft real mayo for $1.99, also on sale.  I really really prefer Hellman's but never in this world will I pay over $7 for a jar.  Kraft is a good second choice until I can get to Costco where I can get two giant tubs of Hellmans for about $10; each jar is over 2 quarts if I remember correctly.

Lynne, I’m ready for this one to be finished also - it feels like sewing the same blocks every week - just arranged a little differently.  This week is better - much less matching of points.  I’m going to try and finish it today since I’m heading to WI to spoil grandkids tomorrow - can’t wait!!!

Here is my week 15 clue.  I am getting tired of this quilt.  So many steps in each block, and even though all the blocks are different, they all start with pretty much the same steps.  I am a month behind, plus the extra clues that came with a few of the weeks.  I think there are 4 or 5 more weeks to go.  I might pack all the clues with their fabric together then and put it aside for a while.

It's been quiet here this week.  Hope everyone is well and enjoying the springtime.  

I found a Christmas tree skirt pattern I really like.  I might just leave the hole out of the middle and make a table topper out of it instead. 

Sandy I hope the sticker shock doesn't send you in to cardiac arrest this year.  The amount stuff has increased at the store is crazy.  We stopped at the store to pick up some favorite things for C to eat last Saturday.  She didn't get the blueberries - I love you baby, but $5.45 a pint is a little much!

Off to deal with the laundry.  Have a great weekend!

We're back on Iowa soil and happy to see Northwood again.  Life in Texas is so different: food, entertainment, activities etc.  I love it for a few months but don't think I could give up the Midwest for much longer.  The quality of life here is so much better although more expensive.  I always get sticker shock when I go shopping for groceries the day after we get home!
