It was nice out today. Tomorrow it is supposed to rain and the forecast was predicting snow for Sunday. Next week it is supposed to be below freezing at night.
I mailed off the quilt this morning. It is expensive to mail a quilt, especially when you insure it. Then I wen to Wal Mart, all before going to my bee meeting. I enjoy getting together with the ladies. I finished the binding on a baby quilt and started on another.
This is a "Quilt in a Day" pattern that I bought last year when Patty spoke to our guild. She will be here again this April.
After the bee meeting I went to Dollar General store to get more plastic storage bins. Last week they had the shoe box size bins for $1.00. They were out today. They had the sweater size bins for $2.50, so got two of them. I plan to use them to store my shirting strips in. The bigger ones look like they'd hold two layers of strips. I still have 2 of the smaller ones that I got last week. Guess I'll wait until I get all the strips cut to see which size works best.
My daughter has been trying to talk me into getting a laser printer. It is a little cheaper to print each page compared to my ink jet printer, about 1 cent cheaper per page for the black ink and about 3 cents cheaper for color pages. But.... I just don't thing I could afford to replace cartridges at $80.00 for black ink and $200 for the 3 color cartridges. That is a lot of money to come up with at one time. It is hard enough to come up with the money for the regular ink cartridges some times.
