Good Morning, Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Easter and/or Passover yesterday! I celebrated the period of Lent (not Catholic) by giving up a few things and I was actually successful this year. In addition to giving up coffee, chocolate, and potatoes, I also gave up buying fabric, patterns, or quilt books. Yes, I did it and I did not buy any during that time. I wanted to see if I could do it as a personal challenge for myself and another reason, I have WAY TOO MUCH STASH! Then again, it doesn’t hurt that just before Lent started, I did go to all 3 local quilt shops and bought about $80 worth at each store. 🙂

The funny thing is that even though I gave up the chocolate is that I had my first piece yesterday, it didn’t taste as good as I thought it would. Same with the coffee and potatoes. I don’t really miss them. Well, actually, I do miss my coffee but I got used to drinking hot tea instead. I do feel better from it and have lost a little weight from it. As for the fabric and books, yes, I really did miss those and am ready to go shopping again! LOL! Also, it doesn’t hurt that one of the LQS is going out of business and will be closing their doors this month for good. I have to and want to look around and shop! At least as a reward for being so good during Lent!

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
