Bbbbbbbaby it's cold outside....

...sssssorrryyyy for the sssshivering.... but it got down to 40 something last night.

Total craziness.

But since I used to a girlscout a hundred or so years ago I was prepared.

I finished my ZippyStrippy bedspread just in the nick of time.

In fact, yesterday, I made four trips back and forth to the laundromat to do the wash, dry, wash, dry cycle on this California king-sized quilt!

And it is fabulous. And warm. And cozy. And lovely. I think I might get a rag-quilt making badge for this one. Or at least a snipping fabric badge cuz that was a big ol' clippin' good time getting this one ready.

And in other, totally non-related news DID YOU KNOW THE POST OFFICE HAS THANKSGIVING PARADE STAMPS? Why did my mind jump there from the rag quilt. I fear I may be loosing my mind even further.

Oh wait! Yea, I can make this whole stamp thing into a very natural segue because GIRL SCOUTS HAVE STAMP COLLECTING BADGES!

Yea, I feel better now. That makes sense.

Right?

Sigh.

Jenny - you made me laugh! Thanks! And it's cold here in Kansas City today, too - they're talking SNOW! I'm a Girl Scout leader, though, so I'm prepared, too. (NOT!)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! The "15 for 15" so far is in reference to National Blog Posting Month - I've managed to post every day for 15 straight days so far - hoping I can do the "30 for 30" by the end of the month.

Why? I have no idea. Just because I can, I guess!

Stay Warm!

Hi Jenny!

Love your cozy quilt! I can't believe it is colder in AZ than NYC! I actually went out today without a coat --it's in the high 60's here which is so warm for mid November :-)

I also love the Thanksgiving parade stamps! I want to go to the parade this year, as for the first time in many years I don't have to cook the meal for 25+ people, but I found out today I definitely have a stress fracture in my foot..boo hoo...so I'm not supposed to walk much.

I was never one to follow rules, however, so maybe I'll still go!
:-)

Totally love the quilt. Just in time is absolutely right. It is cold here, too!

I used to be a girl scout myself...

Love, love, love the giant Zippy!! Perhaps one day I will work up to that size..... In the meantime, I'll just drool over yours! :)
