It's gonna' be a busy day....

Today is going to be a busy day, but a fun day here in Amish Country. We will be going to church this morning. We will have to practically run out of church because from 1:00 - 2:30, Timothy has a classmate's birthday party to go to. It's his first real invitation to a birthday party. He is so excited. Then, at 4:00, we're meeting Kurt and his kids to watch "Hotel Dogs". After "Hotel Dogs", we'll do the grocery shopping. It's going to be a full day!!

Speaking of birthdays . My 40th birthday is coming up on March 5th. I am taking the day off from work and taking Hannah out of school for an "educational field trip". We are going to spend an entire day in Lancaster County WITH NO BOYS!!

There are a few things that I have put on my birthday wish list already. One of them is the Quilter's Workbook.
I've also been looking at the quilting calculator, but I'm not sure how much I would use either one of these (book or calculator) since I am going to primarily do applique quilting.
If any of you have either of these (book or calculator), I'd love to hear your thoughts on their usefulness. If you have any other suggestions for my birthday wish list, please share those ideas too.

  1. I have the calculator. I use mine. Comes in handy if I'm enlarging a quilt or decreasing the size of it. Figuring out how much fabric to buy. I'm not an expert with it for sure. Have to refer to the instructions. I bought mine with half of coupon at either JoAnn's or Hancocks. I'd recommend purchasing it with either 40% or 50% off coupon. I didn't think it worth the full price but with either of those discounts it is.
