since my last post. There's just not been much to write about. I haven't done any stitching, nor much of anything but normal family activities and getting ready to host Bunco at my house . . . which was last night. Hosting takes a lot out of me - all the planning, trying to come up with a theme, shopping for prizes, not to mention cleaning the house! But it always turns out fine.
This time I went with the typical March theme of St. Patrick's Day, so I had green score cards, little green take-out boxes for snacks, green gift bags. And in the bags I had some Bailey's Irish creme and coffee for the top prizes, Irish tea and green tea pots (they were sooo cute!) for 2nd and 3rd, then a mug with a tiny package of coffee and Baileys tucked inside for booby prize and the bunco traveler prize. There were two of us with exceptionally high scores - I was one with four buncos and a score of 17! And Jennifer had a score of 19. So I won the bunco prize, but made an aside comment about really wanting a teapot. Well one of those winners heard me and said she'd enjoy the Baileys more than the tea - so we traded! Yay!

While Bunco shopping, I dropped into Craft Warehouse where they had fat quarters on sale. I picked up a few and covered my bulletin board with three of them. I've been admiring that one with the tape measure for several months, so was happy to get it on sale. :)
Now the public areas of my house are clean, so maybe this weekend I can put more time into that hardanger doily. Of course, what I should do is work on decluttering some of those not-so-public areas of the house!
