The Tree Project by Wanda Shelton, part 3

Now that I actually marked the cutting lines, I had to remove leaves because I put some too close to the cutting lines.  Yeah-it would have been smart to mark those earlier!
Now to put the upper 2 sections and the lower right section in their own zip bags, with my name and some extra leaves; and then get a piece of fabric the same size as the whole thing and pin my lower left section to it and wait for the trade at the MCQ meeting.
All these days off from work and this is all I've accomplished so far. :-(

Exploding under pressure

So much has been going on with the Holiday Season that I haven't had time to post.  I've been busy, and yet my first thought to post is this lesson Isaac experienced...forgetting an unopened can of pop in your car when it's frozen outside.  If you can see it, both the top and bottom of the can are pushed out, and the pop came out liquid all over the seat of his car and froze, some as if frozen while suspended in air.

Reduce, reuse, recycle

So many times I go to the grocery store and forget to bring my cloth grocery bags.
  So when I accumulate some of the plastic bags instead of putting them in those recycle receptacles at the grocery stores, I take them to the cash register clerks at Goodwill.  They really appreciate them!

How's the saying go?  Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.
