A photo is worth a couple thousand words...

But the cold doesn't keep the artist from his work.

I don't knooooooowwwwwww!

My loving husband told me that he was going to by me an ereader. Yay, me!

I don't know which one to get. Boo, me.

I have looked into both the Kindle and the Nook.

They both:
Have the same screen size.
Can take SD cards for more memory.
Can play games.
Can play mp3 files.
Can browse web (limited).

Plus -

The Kindle:
Is lighter in weight.
Is $10 cheaper.
Has an e ink pearl screen.

The Nook:
Can share books. (MIL and SIL have Nooks. I could share books with them.)
Can read epub format.

I have the Kindle App on my iTouch and really like it. I tried the Nook App and ended up deleting it.

Any suggestions? I'm kinda leaning toward the Kindle, but I just don't know.

(Totally forgot to put a title here. Oops.)

It is winter in Iowa. That means more time in the house. And less time out in the freezing, cold snow. So instead of just sitting on my hind-end, watching my stories, I decided that I would dust off my sewing machine and try some new things.

Flannel Rag Quilts. I've made a few.

This one.

This one.

This one.


I have made two more, but they are surprise gifts. Maybe I'll show them after Christmas.

Today, I saw a pattern for coffee cup cozies. I thought I would give it a shot. I had to stop at the Salvation Army store to find some buttons. I ended up buying a blouse with some red buttons. I ended up liking the fabric so much, I cut up the blouse and used it!

Who knew I had some sewing skills?
