for me. My morning coffee leads me to something sweet, like a doughnut, then some chocolate, then an afternoon Coke, some more chocolate, and eventually an evening cup of coffee (which doesn't keep me awake...it just keeps me alive). If I can't get a caffeine fix, I usually go for some form of sugar to try to perk me up....Nonetheless, I'm overweight. I need to lose some weight in the New Year, so I'm giving up caffeine--and hopefully all the other sugary items that go with my caffeine addiction. It isn't pretty, but I'm getting it done. I have 16 days of Winter Break to straighten up before I have to rise and shine at 5am for school. ;-D So that is my major project right now....
Yesterday I got a surprise in the mail from the UK. Sue over at Quilt Times
sent me a little mug rug for participating in the Christmas Quilt Along this fall. Isn't it wonderful?
I will use it to set my decaf Earl Gray tea on this morning....with a little honey and milk, just like "across the pond"--isn't that what we should say??? Thank you Sue! I've never gotten a quilty gift in the mail....how exciting!!! And I'm definitely in for the Christmas Quilt along this coming year....all year long. Do I use the same button? I should go back and re-read that post on your blog ;-)
For anyone who is wondering....I got a lot of Christmas stuff done because of the quilt along. I made and quilted the tree skirt, and did the big Christmas quilt. I honestly never would have found the time if I didn't have the CQA to motivate me.
I'm working on a Buggy Barn quilt right now....Here is a sneak peek, but I'll do a post on it tomorrow.
