Remember a few posts ago I lamented about losing my longtime favorite mitten?  Well, you won’t believe this.  Bill showed up at my house the other day with MY MITTEN IN HIS POCKET!

Me…”Why didn’t you wear gloves to keep your hands warm?”

Bill…”Because…I only had one and he pulled it out of his pocket.


Bill…”Yeees, I did”

Me…”Where? Was it on the side of the road?”

Bill…”Noooo, it was in the car.”

Me…”In the car? Where in the? I looked in the car.”

Bill…”Up at the top of your toes.”

Me…”I looked on the floor, it wasn’t there.  Really, I looked there.”

Bill…”Well, that’s where I found it.  It was at the top of the floor mat.  You probably didn’t see it because the mat is black, and it’s high and it’s dark there.”

Me…”I can’t believe you found it.  I’m soooo excited. Thank you, thank you, thank you. What made you look there?”

Bill…”I was helping the guy who is installing the remote starter and I stuck my head under there and voila, there is was.”

Needless to say, he got a big hug and a big kiss and I was in a good mood the rest of the day.  I still can’t believe that it was in the car the entire time considering I looked in the car several times over several days.

Yeah, the sad story ends on a happy note.

I spent today working on my Project Improv charity blocks.  I love the idea of not having to follow directions but found it kind of difficult for me without directions.  It’s a catch 22.  Anyway, here’s my blocks…

Improv Block #1

Improv Block #1

Improv Block #2

Improv Block #2

I like Block #2 better.  Maybe I’m getting the hang of it.

I will send these blocks to Jacquie at Project Improv.  Maybe one day I’ll have an entire improv quilt as nice as this one.   Now to start something else improvisational.  It will probably be the FM quilt for Ella.

Bill and I picked Trevor up on Sunday and returned him on Monday night.  He is nearly 4 and quite a ball of energy.  Bill made him a toybox and we spent some time painting it.  Trevor wanted RED.


Yesterday Bill spent a lot of time cleaning up more darn snow.  ENOUGH!  We did a little sledding with Trevor.  Actually, I did some sledding while Bill did some walking up and down the slope.  I also managed to lose one leather mitten that I have owned for about 30 years.  They are were the best mittens I have ever worn, always keeping my hands warm and dry.  I doubt that I can afford to purchase leather mittens anymore.

If anyone finds my mitten, send it home, please.

I’m gonna try to finish assembliing the FM blocks tonight.
