Child of God, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, quilter, basket lover, amateur photographer, flower and vegetable gardener …….. some a little of who I am, some a lot of who I am, and all a part of me. When I started quilting several years ago, it sparked a passion in my creative side that I never knew existed. I fell in love with it from the very start. I love everything about it, from choosing the fabrics and designing the quilt until the time I finish the last stitch of the binding and everything in between.

I won, I won!!

I had a very nice surprise this week ------ I won a gift from Butterball thanks to a give-away from Tina at Mommy's Kitchen.  If you have not checked out her blog, she has some great recipes and tips.  Here is a picture of my gift:
Yep, $20 check from Butterball.  I also had a $3.00 coupon, so my purchase of a 22-pound turkey cost me only 90 cents!  After having to buy new a new washer and dryer two weeks ago, I was really happy to have this $20 check to put toward my grocery bill.  My husband and I did the shopping together this time.  We straightened up the pantry and refrigerator before we went, had our list printed out, had our coupons ready, and tackled Wal-Mart and Kroger together.  We usually get a ham from the Honey Baked Company, but the nearest one is in Lexington, 70 miles from us.  We decided to order a spiral sugar-cured ham from Cracker Barrel this year for the first time to see how it compares.  It is half the price and we will only have to drive 3 miles to pick it up.  I hope y'all have had a wonderful weekend and blessings in abundance.
