Best Laid Plains..........

There is an old saying about "best laid plains", but I can't think of it.  I know it has something to do with whatever you planned, it's not going to work out that way:-)

My plains for today were to work on my SQT challenge for January, Bear Paw quilt block.  For the last couple of days, I have actually changed my fabric choices 3 times.  I think I have it now!!!  Early this morning I found just what I wanted, something quick and simple, I think.  I just have a couple of more fabrics to add to the mixture.  LOL

My husband comes home from his doctor's appointment this morning, and declares that we should make a couple of batches of strawberry jam. I say, no way.........but he usually wins in the end.  We have the frozen whole strawberries in the freezer, simple enough to chop them up.  It took us under an hour to make the 2 batches and clean up.  As I look at the fruit of our labor and hear the tops "pop"....I am glad we did it.


Two frozen loafs of bread dough are rising on the stove top.  Nothing better than fresh jam and fresh bread.  I know what I am having for dinner!!!

Sun is shinning, snow has stopped, everything is right with the world, at least here for now:-)


Husband is off for another appointment, time for me to hit my sewing room.

Have a great day doing whatever you enjoy doing!



  1. Sharon, You are making me very hungry for strawberry jam.....yummmmm! And homemade bread too!!! Goodness....what a wonderful way to hunker down in this snowy winter.
