LITTLE LETTERS SEW ALONG.

my LQS has just stocked every color in American Made Solids.
i might opt to do my-buy-as-you-go-method. but kits are better.

NAIL POLISH QUILT.
you must have seen this.
with links to quilts made by other bloggers.
i love them all but so want to make Lori Holt's into a pillow.

SPACE DUST QUILT ALONG.
Quilt Dad.
i got my discounted pattern.
i choose my fabric.
but since this is not in my budget.
i will be purchasing bits here and there.
really ok with this taking forever. all the details are here.

you know there is more. but long want-to lists make me sad.

EWW.
that's how you spell it.
i looked it up.
and this is either amazing or awful.

REUSABLE BATHROOM WIPES.
for many years i have read about using reusable bathroom wipes.
honestly i previously tried them and then stopped.
but for the past year i have and it is not a big deal.
this sort of not a big deal is maybe something you should try.
i only use for number one. which keeps things very simple.
i use a dry system in that i place used ones in a thick tote bag.
and empty tote into wash along with towels and lounging clothes.
i currently have 9-1/2 in. squares of flannel and a dry system.
i have also cut up some t-shirts and added them into the mix.
i remember a post of someone using vintage sheets.
and am thinking i will switch to that soon.
perhaps the rest of your family need not participate in.
search resuable toilet wipes and you will find plenty of info.

so many things to get going on.
